I arrived at the Clinic expecting to find out if there were any options to treat my CHF. If options existed, I expected to have to schedule another appointment at some later date. Instead, Dr. Asher recommended admitting myself for a full work-up to try to get to the bottom of my problem. I asked him when we would do this and he said that now would be a good time. I was admitted immediately and was discharged eleven days later having had a successful TAVR aortic valve replacement. This was a wonderful outcome for me and Dr. Asher's advice and guidance was instrumental.
