Patient Comments (2)

Dr Atassi gave the worst post-procedure instructions I can think of, mad no attempt to assist when I called a couple of days later. Instead he gave me a $1000 prescription. I decided to skip that and got much better advice from others on the internet. I was able to diagnose and correct the issues...more

Wouldn't recommend. I am a very young patient and I am clueless as to what I have, and he seems to be clueless and keeps throwing different prescription medications at me to "test" them, while I take 2 pills and suffer until he gives me another one. Unbelievable.
