Provider Spotlight: Dr. Nick Askey

At Airrosti, we hire Providers that aren’t only good doctors, they’re good people. Every individual at Airrosti has a passion for improving people’s lives, which is what makes Airrosti so great as a whole. However, we’d like to take some time to get to know the people behind the magical thumbs.
This month we tracked down Dr. Nick Askey in San Antonio and asked him some off the wall questions to get to know him a little better. Check out his answers!
Where would you go on your ultimate vacation?
Australia to scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef
What’s your favorite all-time favorite movie?
It doesn’t win any Oscars but Happy Gilmore combines my two favorite sports (hockey and golf).
What’s the weirdest food you’ve ever eaten?
My mother’s family is Norwegian so Lutefisk is right up there on the weirdness chart.  It is a traditional meal of dried/salted whitefish soaked in lye served on a potato based flatbread called Lefsa.  I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone I like.
If you won a million dollars what would you do with it?
Pay taxes on it; then start a charity to educate young athletes, parents and coaches on injury prevention.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
Since I was raised on Lombardi time (if you aren’t 15 minutes early you’re late) it bothers me when people are always late.
If you were given a yacht what would you name it?
I would name it “For Sale” because I’m not a yacht kind of person.  I think they are a bit over the top and pretentious.  I would take the sale proceeds and buy an awesome fishing boat.
What’s your favorite sport?
Hockey-I’ve played since I was 4 years old and am a huge Chicago Blackhawks and Wisconsin Badgers fan.
If you could have any super power, which would you choose?
MRI vision.
Name one thing you couldn’t live without.
My thumbs.
What did you want to be when you were little?
I wanted to be a judge until I found out I had to read lots of boring stuff to be a judge.  Instead I get to read medical journals every day and that’s way more fun.
What’s your favorite thing about Airrosti?
I have a wonderful support team that handles everything I need, so I can focus 100% on taking the best care of our patients.  I wouldn’t be a good doctor without my wonderful and hardworking fellow Airrostifarians.

    I am suffering from severe tennis elbow and pain in my hands and would love to make an appointment with you, but unfortunately your company doesn’t take Medicare and I can’t afford your private pay amount of 225.00 a session. Is there any chance this will change in the future?
