The most awful experience of my life. My first time meeting with a liver specialist in San Diego. I have a rare condition called benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis. I was in just to get a point of contact and see if he has treated any similar cases. Not only was he judgemental and rude, he didn't listen to me at all. Pushed medicine and a balloon stomach trial on me and I couldn't even talk the whole appointment. I felt awful after. No help from this robot of a doctor. Finding a new one!

My issue is with El Cajon Ofc, of Dr.Tarek Hassanein of Southern Cal.GI and Liver Ctrs. I never got to see the Dr. so I have no opinion about his care or lack thereof. I do, however, have an opinion about office/staff. Totally incompetent, and just totally unprofessional. First appt.was cancelled with no explanation & no phone call. Rescheduled 2nd appt. which was supposed to be at a new location. Arrived at a construction zone. Again no phone calls. Never able to talk to a live person only VM.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DR! The Dr himself is great its his receptionists that are horrible they give out wrong appointment times and act like its your fault they are so RUDE I went to my appointment one time there were 13 other patients that day the Dr and staff never showed 13 people! His med staff is wishy washy good luck with them they never call back. Most horrible experience I've ever had!
He did an endoscopy here in Chula Vista and it was awesome
