Dr Hassan was recommended by my family physician. He is a no non sense type of doctor and tells you like it is. He knows his business and does a good job.

I have had a total of 9 hand procedures performed by Dr. Hassan. I trust him 100 percent with my care. All procedures have been successful in correcting my ongoing issues with my hands and arms.
