Midlothian, VA |
Dr. Abou-Assi and the staff at Virginia Endoscopy Group are outstanding. This is my 8th Colonoscopy, and this was by far the best experience. Everything was done with utmost patient care in mind. They had strict protocols in place to ensure: a hygienic environment; that the correct procedure was being done; that medications and allergies were documented & reviewed; & that I was comfortable & informed. An on site anesthesiologist, Dr. Kim, was also excellent & no side effects from anesthesia.

Great experience So much better than all the fears Great staff Highly recommend Dr Abou-Assi

He is the best in the clinic and the operating room, because of his expertise, thoroughness, compassion for his patients, and wonderful "bedside" manners he displays. I've had an endoscopy and colonoscopy by Dr. Abou-Assi. Prior to each procedure, he would let me know tt's going to be alright. I spent over 24 years in the U.S. Air Force, with over 4 major surgeries; none of those doctors treated me like Dr. Abou-Assi. Dr. Abou-Assi makes you feel like SPECIAL! Because, you are SPECIAL!

Dr. Abou-Assi was highly recommended to me from a friend. He was from the beginning such a help to figuring out my problems with my IBS, GERD and the hernia I have. He is the most kind hearted & patient doctor. Listens and answers all your questions and concerns; works to get you the relief you need. His direct staff is awesome; the ONLY issue I had is the front desk lady when you come in was not very friendly (maybe she is having a bad day).

Dr. Abou-Assi visited with me before the proceedure. This was the first time this happened to me. I had two previous colonoscopies and never saw the doctor before the proceedure. Every staff member, from the admit nurse through the technicial, recovery nurse, dischare nurse, and Anesthesia doctor were friendly, approachable, eager to answer questions.
