Patient Reviews

couldn't of had better care
October 29, 2018
I really appreciate what the doctor has done for me.
September 18, 2018
In general, these "feel good" things are immaterial; I don't go to the doctor so he can see me fast and tell me what I want to hear. The most important thing is whether I was medically served and whether my care was appropriate for the condition. And I was and it was. The fact that it was a pleasant experience I consider a bonus but not a necessity. It was a pleasant experience.

Follow up was excellent

this was a 6 month follow up visit and Dr took time to go through my records with me on all changes. I appreciate having Dr Hassan around to help me when it's needed

Re: time - appointment really didn't require much time. Frustrated he wanted another check up in 16 mos. to ensure all was well.
March 19, 2018
I appreciate *Dr. Hassan's honestly about what is realistic about my health goals. He always listens to my questions. I trust him. He could easily do another surgery because I want it but takes the time to really explain the risks vs. rewards.
March 19, 2018
I would recommend *Dr. Hassan to anyone! He looks out for the well being of his patient. He is up front & honest about the situation, both good & bad, and that is why I trust him COMPLETELY.
March 19, 2018
Very sensitive when dealing with emotional topics. Offering follow up appointment after everything sunk in.
February 10, 2018
*Dr. Hassan is a very knowledgeable dr. I like it when they address you when they come into the room & give you a firm handshake.
