Dr. Brett A Hassan has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Go Somewhere Else

I had the misfortune of scheduling a colonoscopy with Dr. Hassan at Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport. Having completed the colonoscopy prep the preceding day, I was instructed by Dr. Hassan's office to arrive at AJH at 10:30 for preparation purposes, whereupon the colonoscopy procedure would begin at 11:15. After sitting in the waiting room until 11:15 without any notification by hospital staff of any reason for the prolonged delay, I informed the staff that I was leaving and would follow-up with a more professional GI office somewhere else. I obviously did not have the opportunity to experience Dr. Hassan's medical talents first hand, but if they're anything like his organizational talent (or lack of such) you'd be well advised to look elsewhere when considering a CI doctor.
