I was very please with the doctor's knowledge and the empathetic way she provided care to my daughter.
Dr Asato was incredibly thorough and kind, several years ago we saw another neurologist for the same issue and we feel as though this experience was head and tails above the last. We are incredibly grateful for this experience.
I am always pleasantly surprised and appreciative at how quickly Dr Asato & her staff ( especially Essie Smalls) return my calls and tend to my child's needs! It's refreshing to know that her neurologist is available and swift with her needs. Furthermore , Dr Asato truly listens to my concerns and addresses issues by explaining and asking instead of simply coming to a conclusion. Dr Asato also helps my 10-year old daughter gain confidence and independence in her treatment by directly asking her questions and teaching her about medication and management of her problems. This boosts her confidence and supports her self-management.
Dr. Asato was wonderful. She is the perfect provider to address our concerns regarding the future care of our child. She is very thoughtful, taking time to explain our options and to lay out a plan of action for the next few months.
We had a phenomenal first experience with Dr. Asato, and we look forward to working with her. I was most impressed with her desire to follow up with a phone conversation to fill in any gaps in our conversation due to my child's difficult nature.
Dr. Asato was wonderful. Very good with our son. Patient and thorough - did not make the appointment feel rushed and made our son her priority during the appointment. Nothing negative to say about this doctor.
We Love Dr. Asato, Miya

She was so nice and caring
doctor was very friendly and nice and answered our questions thoroughly.
Dr. Asato is a kind, compassionate doctor who is very well versed in my son's illness and listens to him and to us about our concerns so we can make educated decisions.
Dr. Asato was professional, but yet congenial. She made my daughter feel very comfortable during her exam. The Doctor was very perceptive, and left me with the sense that she was absolutely paying attention.
