Patient Comments (6)
in Wheat Ridge, CO |
Dr. Cassara is very caring. She is funny. She is whip-smart. She answers questions on the portal usually same day. I alternate having blood work done for thyroid w/o office visit and with office visit about every 6 weeks, seeing her 4x a year. She always asks me how I am feeling, looks at blood work, and then we decide together how to adjust my thyroid meds. When I had cancer, she was very flexible in appointment scheduling.

Don't see Dr. Cassara unless you want to self diagnosis yourself as she never even bothered to exam me in 6 appts! Great at referring but gives no feedback and won't return messages with answers on portal. Then had the nerve to tell me I was obsessed with my illness. Well yeah, I would like to get well but even with bad blood tests she did nothing! Such a waste of time only to know what I already knew and got no support to improve my health! Why is she in practice? Bedside manner AWFUL!

Comes off that she cares and then you have to tell her what to do for you. Then after tests come back there is no interaction but the portal. Which my concerns were very serious and she blew me off. Making follow up appts months apart and telling me her staff reads her messages you leave not her! She is a pathetic example of a doctor that is to assist you in your quality of life or in getting better. Just worthless. Please don't be fooled! She genuinely has no time for you!

Fantastic service and works well with the goals of the patient.
She is unresponsive and doesn't call after numerous attempts to contact her to get test results. I was recently diagnosed with a condition and trying to get treated and my issue under control. Her office staff are also unresponsive and rude. I feel like I am not being cared for the way a patient should.
in Arvada, Colorado |
Dr. Cassara was so personable! She really LISTENED to my husband explain his health concerns and came up with a plan of action. I would definitely recommend Dr.Cassara to my friends and family.
