How was your appointment with Dr. Cassar?

Dec 24, 2021
Dr. Cassar is a rarity in the medical field. I was experiencing horrific stomach pain, and a plethora of stomach problems. Within one visit with him, he listened he asked questions. He was kind, compassionate. I felt safe in this environment. Due to having many medical issues. He was absolutely wonderful in caring for me me. He immediately had a solution. Which intern has allowed me to live without excruciating pain. I would recommend him to anyone. I have recommended him highly. He has an extraordinary bedside manner. His staff and office are magnificent. I do not know this man other than being his patient as I know many other doctors may have people they know write reviews. I am again just a patient who was desperate to be relieved of pain. And Dr. Cassar offered that. Thank you Dr. Cassar for going above and beyond. I am so grateful there are still doctors out there like him.
