      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
