i can't stress enough how wonderful the receptionists nurses and my dr were to me. i got sick in the waiting room nurses and receptionists were so caring and understanding! my dr knew i was in so much pain and didnt waste anytime getting me better! he explained how serious my illnesses was and got me in right away and my dr came 1 to 2 times a day to see me and to go over how i was feeling

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

I feel very confident with Dr Hassan.

The nurse was not concerned with my privacy when taking out my drain. When the doctor came in he covered me with a sheet!
