This was my second visit with Dr. Kassakian. She explained test results in terms I could understand. She answered all of my questions in a clear and concise manor. She is aware of my needs as a patient who experiences anxiety. She is very easy to talk to and makes me feel at ease. I couldn't be more pleased with the care I have received.

First appointment was with Dr. K in Astoria. First impression was this doctor cared about her patients which was obvious with the amount of time and questions. Dr. K immediately put me in my comfort zone. I was disappointed when told Dr. K would no longer be available at CMH but could make appointments in Portland. I've been happy with each of my follow up appointments getting information along with words of encouragement which is very important. Also the options I've been given.

Referred to Dr. Kassakian by my family doctor for blood pressure issues. Dr. Kassakian listens to my issues, explains her analysis and offers recommendations that are easy to understand. The staff is courteous and thorough from the scheduling of appointments, reminders of appointments as well as reminders for laboratory work prior to meeting with Dr. Kassakian. She is always very professional and I would recommend her for anyone in need of her medical specialty.

Dr K is great. She takes the time to treat the individual, not the symptoms. She listens to what you say. She’s very accessible and has personally called to check on me when I was sick.

I was first introduces to Dr. Kassakian through my primary doctor at Providence. Since meeting with her, I have found that she is very analytical and honest when dealing with her patient. This includes the entire office in communicating with my various particulars. To me the end result of this most fortunate situation is that I am really comfortable when talking with the doctor on any subject regarding my health. This is essential when diagnosing the areas in which I need assistance with.

Yikes! What a nightmare my experience turned out to be! I left a positive review before, but after today I couldn’t revoke that enough! I make kidney stones like it’s a full time job, if you are reading this and possess this god forsaken illness save what little dignity you have and run from her! Unfortunately for me I’ve been battling a monster stone since September, a flare up happened on my way to the appointment. DO Not show this doctor weakness as you will be treated like a piece of trash!

I have been a patient of Dr. C. Kassakian for quite a long time. I adore her, she is smart, knows her job well, keeps me informed and up to date on my well being. I highly recommend her. I feel she is doing the best to help me with my health care. She always takes her time and never rushes my visits. She always explains all and any questions I might have. She is awesome..

I have had two office visits with Dr, Kassakian and both of them were very professional. At both visits, she explained my kidney condition in language I could understand. The latter is something I very much appreciate.

She spent time getting to know us, interested in his total health issues. Explained very clearly about kidney disease and helped us with practical suggestions to keep his kidney function on an even keel. She was very professional and still very warm and friendly. We left knowing we had found Portland's best!
