My husband has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Dr. Ashiku will be his surgeon. He already inserted a feeding tube and his port for chemo. So far, we are so impressed with his compassion and expertise. We are blessed to have him as our doctor. I know the surgery will go well because of Dr. Ashiku. We are glad to have you in California. Thank you!

None better ....

There is no better physician than Dr. Ashiku, his compassion coupled with his extraordinary competence is an unbeatable pairing for a surgeon and any human being. There aren't words to describe the sense of safety this man engenders, while still informing of risks and prognosis. In office visits he spends between :40 minutes to over an hour, calmly explaining everything, showing me comparisons of imaging studies, explaining rationale behind decisions. I could go on and on, but I'll end by saying "I have been touched deeply by this man. I can only wish him the best life, as he has so earned this."
