In this day and age, it's disheartening to find a seemingly good doctor who is supported by a selfish, incompetent and lazy staff. I'm a Type 1 diabetic since 1963 and have seen Dr. Driss for the past 3 years. My insurance company - Medicare supplement - requires an annual pre-authorization for my...more

He is very knowledgeable, however, his bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. He takes little consideration into what the patient wants to say, he knows best. His PA-C Mike Sassman, however, is the one to see in this office. He is courteous, and takes time to hear all the symptoms.
