What People Say About Dr. Amer Kassar, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

After first visit, they called in the wrong dosage of synthroid. It took several days/phone calls to correct. After second visit, they called in the wrong medicine. I called and the office staff said the doctor never prescribed synthroid. I told her his name is on my empty prescription bottle! I said I was going on vacation and needed the refill...never got it. When I got back (after a week with no medication) I received 1 refill and a letter from them telling me to find a new doctor. FYI...Dr. Kassar, I already fired you!

The Kassar and his associates (especially, one of the nurse practitioner) did not provide professionally. They didn't explain fully enough; even, medical terms on lab order my wife was going to take were not explained. They did NOT care patient's medical treatment, only care about money. We went to this office for three times and finally concluded "not going there, anymore." I'm not a medical practitioner who competes with him. I'm in higher education field. I'm so disappointed about them!

Everyone in the office is very friendly. I have never had to wait more than 15 minutes. Dr. Kassar has called me himself to follow up with blood work results, medication changes and when I need to be seen again. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful regarding questions. I couldn't be more happy that I chose him as my endocrinologist.
