Patient Comments (3)
in Griffith, IN |
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.
