Patient Comments (5)
in Trumbull, CT. |
Dr. Ghiassi became my doctor in August of 2016. I was admitted to Bridgeport Hospital as an emergency because of a twisted colon. Surgery needed to be performed. I was morbidly obese, & the surgery was very risky. Dr. Ghiassi found much scar tissue, lesions & mesh from a gastric bypass surgery I had done in New York 18 yrs. ago. I almost didn't make it off the table alive. Dr. Ghiassi is an excellent surgeon & all around doctor. He doesn't criticize but explains the truth. Recommend him highly.
