Very knowledgeable dr Explains very well on the disease state Very friendly and has excellent bedside manners Trustworthy dr

Dr. Dassani looks like he cares about you when you're in the office, but if you have a complicated kidney problem, don't go to him. I had a stricture of my ureter that was obstructing my kidney and he told me nothing could be done, but he would talk to my urologist Dr. Jaimin Shah and get back to me. He never called. I would have lost total kidney function and be on dialysis, or dead from renal failure, if I didn't take it upon myself to seek help elsewhere. Drs. Zhou and Pudur saved my kidney

I was blessed to have Dr Dassani as my kidney doctor. He was hands down the best doctor I have ever encountered. Since 2010 when I met him his determination to do everything he could to help get me better was amazing. I was incarcerated as well and he treated me like a great friend. For that I thank him and I highly reccommend anyone with a kidney issue to see him. Im now in remission and for that I owe all the thanks in the world to Dr. Dassani.. sincerely Trevor Cook
