Patient Comments (3)
in Kent, WA |
Knowledgeable and skilled at his profession. Ten weeks ago I finally made an appointment after suffering from a terrible fissure for 7 months. I had followed all of the fiber diet recommendations, sitz baths, prescription creams from doctors, and a handful of other creams. Nothing worked. After an initial consult my mind was put at ease knowing he was confident about what I was going through and how to fix it. I had the surgery two days later and felt better immediately. Took 5 wks to feel 100%.

After several meeting / procedures with Dr Amir, I felt vary comfortable about upcoming colorectal surgery .I had zero anxiety on operation day and at OT. Happy and surprised with such positive experience.
in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Bastawrous is the most compassionate physician I've ever encountered. His approach to medical issues is conservative and procedures are always clearly explained. I have never been more grateful for a physician's treatment of me as a patient and a person.
