Asher is a good-nature doctor with a very sarcastic wit (despite his rough childhood), even in the most serious circumstance. He can also be described as a "smart ass.” Asher’s personality makes him popular with his colleagues and patients. Asher is like a Robin Hood figure in an effect that he fights for the underdog, and he fights for people. He pushes the system and bucks the system, pushes his colleagues, and pushes the administration, to save people's lives whose lives are worth saving." In the end, though, Asher realized that it wasn't about him, it was about his patient, Asher says that he does not believe in fate, and considers life sacred. He also firmly believes that every doctor should have bedside manner, for most of his patients, Asher expresses a normal doctor-patient relationship.
Asher can be very blunt when he deals with patient families. He is obsessive and tries his best to get the information that he needs to treat the patient. He uses all of the information that he can get from tests to give the patient better treatment. He believes that the patient has the right to know the truth about his health.
Asher can be pompous. He can be overly proud of his own accomplishments. Asher can be a bit harsh on medical students as well as other staff. He is a perfectionist when it comes to medicine and romance.
