Dr. Aher took on my case when I had almost given up. I had been turned down by a surgeon and another one had an issue and was unable to return to work. He was patient, explained clearly what I could expect and was confident her could help me. All our visits were pleasant and I am thankful to have met him.

He listened to what I've been going through, along with the test results he had on hand could give me an idea of what was going on.
