Pre surgery visit and post surgery visit I felt rushed, he gave me a booklet to read about the surgery and he did not see me in the hospital upon my release. My post visit I had issues and concerns, after waiting more than 45 minutes after my appointment time, the nurse seem huffed and when dr gachassin came in the room I could tell he was in a hurry, I tried to explain my issues all he said I'll see you in 6 weeks and walked out. What a waste of time. I will never go back!!!!
