Dr Asihene is an excellent surgeon, a compassionate physician, with very good bed manners, and did outstanding job in taking care of my daughter and I. Dr Asihene is an employee of the hospital, has no control over billing of patients under his care.

I have found Dr. Asihene just the opposite of the other rater. He has been very professional and his staff courteous and go out of the way to set an appointment. His charges were in line with what my insurance company expects and pays.

Dr. Asihene Milks the System

Dr. Asihene has a reputation for overcharging and scheduling bogus appointments to milk his patients and their insurance companies out of large sums of money. He left his native country where doctors are desperately needed to come to America to get rich. And that's exactly what he's doing at the EXPENSE of his patients.
