in Brooklyn, NY |
I have been with Dr. Kassab for many years now. Each and every time i go for a visit, he first asks how everything is. He listens to every question and responds well. He never seems to rush me when i have a visit so whether it is a short one (no questions) or a longer one (several questions) he never tries to end the appointment short. I would recommend him to everyone i know because i feel confident in his ability as he helped to address/solve my problems.

He doesn't know what the word Patience/Patients means. He is short with his answers and gives his personal opinion when it isn't needed. I left his office very upset. I will not see this doctor again, and could never recommend him to anyone else. In his years of being a doctor,. he needs to retire
