Dr. Michael S Ascher has the following 3 specialties
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
- Addiction Psychiatry
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Ascher is excellent—brilliant and intuitive. He listens, he thinks ahead and he cares. If he is needed, he will make himself available because he always wants the best for his clients. In addition, he is completely non-judgmental--making his office a safe space—for everyone. I have never met a kinder, more concerned doctor. I would give him 10 stars if I could. I owe him my son’s life and am forever grateful to Dr. Ascher.
After just one first appointment, I can say I there is no one I'd go to other than Dr. Ascher. Dr. Ascher is kind, genuine, knowledgeable, and really takes the time to get to know you. He has your best interest in mind, and looks out for you on and off the clock. Very early on in my treatment and I can't say enough good things!
Anyone under the care of Dr. Ascher knows just how fortunate they are to have him in their corner as a true patient advocate and expert in his field. Dr. Ascher's personal and professional attributes make him perfectly suited for this profession. I initially chose to seek the care of Dr. Ascher because of his impressive qualifications and Ivy League education, but I never expected that a physician with these qualifications would listen so intently to the patient and place such a high value on my input as a patient. He is so easy to talk to, humble, completely non-judgmental, and always places you at the center of your own care. Dr. Ascher works really hard to be available to all of his patients should they need to get in touch. He makes himself available 7 days a week (via phone, text, email, etc). I have texted him on evenings and weekends with questions or concerns, and he always responds promptly, initiates a plan to solve the problem, and finds solution. He will go completely out of his way to solve a problem for you. He always responds graciously and is genuinely happy to help. Just knowing that Dr. Ascher is just a text away brings me peace of mind, and this feeling alone is invaluable. Do not delay contacting Dr. Ascher for an initial appointment like I did! You will be pleasantly surprised at how painless and quick it is to set up an initial appointment. My life changed when I started seeing Dr. Ascher and I only regret not getting in touch sooner.
