Dismissive and insensitive. He was rough with the exam, extremely unprofessional and I felt completely uncared for and unheard. Condescending (multiple times talked extremely slowly explaining about hormones and monthly cycles to me -an adult female) I had been admitted twice in one week to the ER for what later was diagnosed as pelvic inflammatory disease (found on second visit) Seemed as though he made up his mind that it was “just hormones” and that I “should do pelvic floor exercises, hot cold compresses, and take Motrin.” Felt like I was transported to the past with an ancient doctor explaining o me how to deal with my “women issues” One point after the rough and overly painful vaginal exam He physically grabbed my arm to place it on my hip, bending the arm that had an IV in. I told him No because It was painful. He brushed it off as if I hadn’t even spoken. No doctor should ever behave this way.

During the ultra sound (trans-vaginal) he was whipping the probe around back and forth, which was very painful and uncomfortable for my wife. She expressed this to him several times and he did nothing different. He didn’t acknowledge her discomfort in any way. As he was doing this he was trying to figure out how to use the ultra sound machine, it was if he had never seen one before. It was as if I gave my grandpa smart phone for the first time and he was trying to figure out how to use it. He was literarily fumbling around with so bad the medical assistant stepped in 3 different times telling him how to use it. His inability to work the machine screamed incompetence. He was so unfamiliar with it, it was the most unprofessional performance by a so called medical professional I have ever seen. Trust me I have seen a lot. Then he proceeded to tell us in a round about we that she had a miscarriage, never directly saying that to us.

Dr. Vassall performed my surgery to diagnose and remove endometriosis adhesions. He is a laid back, caring man. He is an excellent surgeon and doctor, with a great bedside manner.
