Good with bedside manner but when diagnosed with prostate cancer, he just dumps you with the nurse and doesn't do any followup, nor does he suggest a list of oncologists. Very frustrated and scared after a diagnoses of cancer.

I had a vasectomy done on Thursday . Doctor was quick, pain was minimal and he even cracked a joke or two which helped put me at ease. All in all good stuff .

Not sure about the Doctor but his answering service is horrible and has no clue of what he has going on nor where he's work on any given day.

Amazing Surgeon.. This man performed a very difficult kidney removal on me and did a fantastic job. I would refer him to anyone.
in North Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Kassahun removed my right kidney six weeks ago using the da Vinci robotic system. The surgery was difficult and took about three hours. I was impressed with Dr. Kassahun's professionalism and surgical expertise. He visited me the day after the surgery (Saturday) in the hospital because the surgery had been so complex. I'm 76 years old and pleased that the surgery was so non-invasive. I experienced very little pain after the surgery. My recovery has been excellent. Thank you, Doctor!
Very quick and unfriendly. No advice, help or support. Dr was in a hurry younger to other patients. Tried to cancel my appointment one day before.
