Review of Dr. Ghiassi

- in Monroe |

Fantastic Doctor spends time and straight to the point. My appointment with Dr. Ghiassi was a thank God I went and he was there. Dr Ghiassi examined me, during the examination he came up with a solution to my problem, which I'm so very relieved from the suffering. Also great staff members too. I will definitely recommend Dr Ghiassi (Surgery Specialist ) to friends and family anytime anywhere. I am very grateful for our friends at 2000 Post Rd, Suite 101 Fairfield, CT. 06824 Connecticut.

Review of Dr. Ghiassi

- in Trumbull, CT. |

Dr. Ghiassi became my doctor in August of 2016. I was admitted to Bridgeport Hospital as an emergency because of a twisted colon. Surgery needed to be performed. I was morbidly obese, & the surgery was very risky. Dr. Ghiassi found much scar tissue, lesions & mesh from a gastric bypass surgery I had done in New York 18 yrs. ago. I almost didn't make it off the table alive. Dr. Ghiassi is an excellent surgeon & all around doctor. He doesn't criticize but explains the truth. Recommend him highly.
