After seeing this unprofessional doctor for a throat problem, I decided to have a second opinion resulting in surgery to remove a polyps from my vocal chord at Georgetown University! I would highly recommend that you skip this doctor and go for one with updated equipment and part of a group, rather than an individual who really "Pads the bill" $1700 for a simple 10 min visit. He's the doctor, receptionist and nurse. What a joke! Go somewhere else!

I had an appointment with Dr. Kass in March, 2016 to examine my nose and throat as I thought I had an infection. Dr. Kass examined my nose and throat and prescribed an antibiotics that did not work. January 2017, I received a sketchy bill (1st and only bill) sent via PayPal with no details that says my balance is past due. I reviewed the claim sent to CIGNA and there are three claims for Surgery. He only examined my throat & nose. I do not recommend this sketchy doctor & will not see him again.

Dr. Erik was the first doctor to successfully treat my sinus problem and my hearing issues. He uses methods that other doctors do not use. He listens to what I say. I have not had an infection in a year. He also is treating my sleep apnea with other methods beside the CPAP machine. He has a great bedside matter.
