About Dr. Asif

Philosophy of care

My philosophy of medicine is treating you by gathering a good history and not underestimating the biological part of your bio-psycho-social profile. It is not uncommon for some psychiatric conditions and symptoms to be related to those underlying medical conditions which, if treated, will result in significant long-lasting improvement. For instance, a patient with signs and symptoms of dementia could have Alzheimer’s disease, or he could simply have a treatable vitamin B12 deficiency or thyroid problem.

Why I entered medicine

I chose this profession because it has a direct impact on improving the lives of others, and it is a highly respected profession. Seeing others improve and return to their functional life is a big achievement and very satisfying for me. We live in the era of significant advancements in adult psychiatry and can use these advancements to help others.

Community involvement

I am involved in charity organizations.

Personal interests

In my free time I enjoy gardening, hiking, fishing and playing soccer and basketball with my kids.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
