I believe that Dr. Dahshan provides the best care to all his patients. His bedside manners are terrific and he explaines everything very well. I love his attention to details and that he provided photos and explanations of his endoscopy procedure to his patients family.

I have been taking my child to Dr. Dahshan and I will admit at times he is hard to understand, but when I asked about certain things he has no issue with clarifying the details for me. The staff are polite most of the time. There has only been on time when they were really busy that I had to wait over 15 mins.

This doctor is nothing short of rude! Took my daughter there because she is vomiting for days on end then it stops and starts again. My daughter is also insulin resistant and has PCOS therefore, very overweight. She and I have started a strict no carb no sugar diet where she is losing about 7lbs per week. SHE CANNOT process carbs or sugar of any kind. He told her that all her problems stem from being overweight and her weight was her fault. He never once asked her about medical history!
in Charleston, WV |
**2 hours until we see dr** --rushed through our appt with a child who has complicated health circumstances --did not let me ask questions.I actually had to follow him as he walked away --very difficult to understand--he speaks very softly, uses lots of jargon --he does not work with CAMC as his website lists (only local hospital with pediatric cardiology). Therefore, you should not take any child with a heart condition to see Dahshan--he cannot do any procedures on your child.
