5.0 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ I would recommend them to anyone

This process has been the biggest step in my life to feeling healthy and I am so glad I went with ASB in Somerset. I live in NY and was looking into facility closer to home but I'm glad I didn't. Everything has been so easy for me and I feel like I have real support when I need it most. My surgery was even moved up sooner which was a happy surprise. They knew how committed to this I was and since all my clearances were complete I was good to go. The front desk staff is kind on the phone and in person. They don't treat you like just another call. I would recommend them to anyone who needs this surgery. My surgery is in three days! Wish me luck!
