Dr. Asher saved my life – well not my life exactly, but my nose! I had severe sinusitis, had lost my sense of taste and smell, had become ill from too many anti-biotics and steroids, was told that an iffy operation was my only hope – and then I met HIM. He is a superb doctor who talks, listens and, most important, observes and treats you partly through observation. Even though he claims to only be an ear, nose, and throat man, I suspect he can treat and cure anything. He is a real healer – and that is very rare.

I came to see Dr. Asher with the highest of recommendations from those at the top of the field in the Broadway world – and he exceeded all expectation. Dr. Asher really listens… understanding the needs and the instrument of each patient. I trust Dr. Asher whole-heartedly with my voice and my health, which is vital for my job.

Benjamin Asher is a brilliant physician and healer with a truly holistic approach. He’s the first health professional I contact whenever I need a consultation for any problem involving the head or neck, sinuses, ears, nose, throat, vertigo or tinnitus, He also has an excellent understanding of allergy, Lyme disease and Candida infections.

As a solo performer on Broadway, I spent an exhilarating but exhausting seven months pushing my voice, body, and spirit to their limits. Dr. Asher has renewed all three, and with each treatment I discovered reserves of physical and creative energy I did not know I possessed. Thank You!

I never felt so welcomed at a doctor’s office – ever. Dr. Asher’s knowledge and skill in the use of “alternative” modalities are amazing. I’m so happy that I found this office!

Dr. Asher has rescued my performing career. He brought clarity to a confusing diagnosis, offered me a healthy solution and has stuck with me on the long road to recovery.

Dr. Asher is an individual with superb ability and training who is devoted to his patients. There are very few physicians who are able to manage such complex problems with very good patient outcomes. He is a very fine and comforting physician and a marvelous person.

I came to see Dr. Asher recently for chronic stomach stress and post-nasal drip. I had been treated by a (purely) conventional doctor and had not had any relief… Dr. Asher not only correctly diagnosed me, but he was able to get me on the path to recovery. He is an intuitive, skilled, compassionate healer. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

This was the best, most pleasant, most organized medical visit I have had in 20 years!

The first truly outstanding experience I’ve ever had at a doctor’s office. I’m actually looking forward to my next appointment!

I wanted to thank you for the kind support you provided me concerning the death of my father and my need to take care of myself. The conversations with you were among the most helpful I have had with anyone – including my mental health colleagues. Your assistance over the past number of years has been invaluable and has contributed significantly to improved quality of life. I am truly grateful that you are a member of my health care team.

Since Dr. Asher has started treating me, my sinus troubles have dramatically improved and I am hopeful… If it were not for the MD sign at the door, you’d think he is a magician; he is a healer, that is for sure.

Before I started working with Dr. Asher my work was an extremely stressful environment for me. Touring and creating new work had become the very thing making me unwell and unable to enjoy my life. Working with Dr. Asher issues of fatigue, constant sickness, stress, and vocal problems have become worlds better. I don’t want to imagine my life and work in a world where I don’t have Dr. Asher helping me navigate changes.

Benjamin Asher is the quintessential otolaryngologist, in a class by himself. To be able to receive care from a person who is not only smart and well informed, but is also compassionate, kind, and firmly grounded in many paradigms of healing is a true blessing for patients. As a fellow ear-nose-and throat physician, I would seek his counsel if I, or a family member, was in need of ENT care.

Dr. Asher is a rarity among New York physicians – a caring, responsive doctor who takes the time to listen to his patients and take a full measure of their medical issues and personal concerns, rather than a narrow inventory of their symptoms. And his care extends beyond the office visit – he is diligent about follow-ups. Dr. Asher is the closest thing to a true wellness doctor as I’ve ever encountered in New York.

I feel that I received a wonderful opening – both physical and spiritual – from Dr. Asher’s ministrations. I’m very grateful and feel most blessed.

You have provided excellent service to many of my patients. You have always been attentive to their problems and knowledgeable in finding solutions. Your ability to manage difficult, multi-system problems is impressive… results have been excellent and patients have been very satisfied.

Absolutely thorough, great listener, very integrative approach – so rare!

I have referred numerous patients in my practice to Dr. Benjamin Asher for a variety of ENT issues. I find his evaluations extraordinarily intelligent; he is painstakingly thorough in his consideration of environmental and allergic triggers. His attention to diagnostic detail has been scrupulous. Dr Asher’s hands-on work results in positive outcomes that rival those of the most talented craniosacral, osteopathic, or chiropractic practitioners. My patients and I have experienced his refreshing thoughtfulness, highly personable style, and palpable respect for human beings that confirms his stature as a true healer. I feel completely confident in continuing to recommend Dr. Benjamin Asher to my patients.

Dr. Asher gave me back a part of my health I assumed was lost forever! I suffered with intense daily neck spasms for fifteen years as the result of an automobile accident. I sought relief from acupuncture, chiropractic, herbs, physical therapy, counseling, and even surgery. By the time I consulted with him, I was up to the maximum dosage of pain medications, anti-inflammatories, and even steroids. That was over five years ago, and I have needed only one follow-up treatment to remain pain free without use of medications.

I was amazed to see my two year old’s complete trust in Dr. Asher.

There is nothing like someone who takes the time to listen and think.

Medical & Spiritual appointment at the same time!

This treatment was exactly what I was looking for, but never thought existed.

My daughter is usually petrified of going to see the Doctor, but the Dr. and his staff made her feel so at ease. I was worried she would cry hysterically, but not one tear dropped from her eyes!

The care and precision with which Dr. Asher works is so very helpful for the performer who needs urgent and reliable care in a holistic and calm atmosphere. Our voice is such an important part of our work – it can make or break a show. We must have the best on our side.

Dr. Asher has helped me tremendously with my neck issues. He is not just an “ENT,” but an angel among us. I also have inner ear problems, (for) which he is instrumental in helping me find relief. Love him!

My immediate impression was that Dr. Asher was going to treat me with ‘modern’ medical treatments that weren’t invasive. However, what I experienced, thankfully, was quite the opposite. Dr. Asher has a gift. He’s not a doctor; he’s a healer. There is a great difference. Modern medicine seems to treat the symptom instead of investigating the cause. Doctors seem to get carried away with this. Dr. Asher intuits, as well as examines, both the symptoms and the cause and that’s why I call him a healer, albeit one with medical degrees. To put it simply, the man really knows what he is doing, and in addition seems to be someone who is continually adapting and honing his practice. When he was treating me I felt as if he was using acupressure, massage, touch and gentle questions in a way that really dealt exactly with my pain. He fixed my problem, one that I’ve had for years, in a couple of treatments. How many acupuncturists, aromatherapists, masseurs, biomechanics, and M.D.’s have I seen that couldn’t help me? I’ve lost count. Anyway, thank you Dr. Asher. The people you treat are lucky they have you to help them.

Dr. Asher – Thank you for always doing the Right Thing at the Right Time.
