Dr. SHIASSIS is well educated. But, he is condescending & uncaring. In the years I was his patient for migraines,never once examined me. He just prescribed pills. He was at least 30-45 minutes late for EACH appointment. At the end, when denied refill, I was put in position of abandonment by him as I was out of town & couldn't come in & see him. Was forced to go cold turkey off medicine he felt necessary for me. If that doesn't show abandonment and lack of care, what does? Not recommend.

Didn't explain use of med and I was told by another doctor to get off of it because of the severe withdrawal symptoms. Three calls to make a second appointment- never call wsback. Stay away!

I saw him over a year ago, and it was one of the worst encounters with a healthcare professional I have ever had. First, he was 3 hours late for the appointment and offered no apologies. He just flopped down, sighed, and made it clear he didn't want to be there. He scoffed at the radiologist's report on my MRI and was sarcastic the entire time. There I was dealing with a new diagnosis which was EARTH SHATTERING to me and he LAUGHED at me and made stupid remarks. I found a better neurologist.

Worst experience I've ever had with a doctor. He gave me a diagnosis. When I asked questions about it, he told me to go home and google it! I was shocked!
