Five Stars

Dr. Ashwal is a professional in every sense of the word. He is quite knowledgeable, explains issues thoroughly, not to mention clearly. My internist recently passed away; a man with whom I had a great relationship. I have said that to say, I am quite comfortable under the care of Dr. Ashwal.

The Best Dr. EVER!!!

Dr. Ashwal has taken care of our family of 7 for 15 years!!! We just love him. He is very caring and puts his patients best interests first. He goes over and beyond for his patients. If there is something he does not know (rare) he will find out. He is not arrogant and is willing to be open minded to hear and consider your opinion where as some doctors think they know everything. My only disappointment is that I had to move out of state and now am struggling to find another doctor to care for my family and am unable to find someone nearly as good. We miss him dearly! His entire staff was kind and welcoming. The PA's, Dr.s, Nurses are all exceptional. I do not have enough good things to say about this practice. Cons: None

Dr. Ashwal is a true family doctor. He has seen my daughter after hours, made room in his schedule for emergencies, and always spends enough time with us to make sure he's covering all his bases.

Goes the extra mile

Dr. Ashwal has been our family doctor for over 15 years. He always goes the extra mile. He has intervened with insurance companies on coverage issues, and called after hours with test results. Appointments with him or his PA are typically available on the day I call with urgent issues.
