I was able to see photos and video of my surgery, which I had requested. He explained and showed how entrapped my occipital nerves were.

I was really worried about this consultation. I have done three others and left each feeling horrible and dysphoric, but Dr. Kassis made me feel cared about.

They explained everything very thoroughly and made sure to encourage me to ask questions if I had any.

He gave me hope for the first time in 5 months after seeing 2 other physicians. I was very impressed and felt like he actually cared and was trying to find a answer for why this is happening. Thank you Dr. Allkassis!!!

The doctor went above and beyond to tell me that he wasn't necessarily the perfect person for the procedure I would need, but recommended another doctor in the practice who would be, and because I had drive a long way to get to my appointment, he made sure I was able to get a consult with that doctor same day. He was extremely kind and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
