Dr Kassakian seemed smart and well prepared (my first appointment with her). She had reviewed my notes and knew my history with her colleague, Dr. Walczyk who retired. She listened well and gave me good information. I had confidence that she would be an excellent specialist for my particular disease (PKD).

My kidneys are a mess, I'm talking like 4 or more kidney stones a month mess! The answer from all of my previous Providers is to put my big girl panties on and accept that this is my future. Dr. Kassakian sensed that I had accepted defeat as my life, and instead of taking the easy way out she is determined to help me. She isn't an old jaded doctor yet! I hope she is always willing to help her patients achieve their best life!

Dr. Kassakian has always gone above and beyond to make sure I have what I need and that I am getting the best care I can get. She's also incredibly personable and friendly.
