Rassekh Rocks

I absolutely ADORE Dr.Rassekh. Although at first he seems very stern, serious, and authoritarian, he is a teddy bear in a lab coat. I was so impressed with Dr. Rassekh I wanted to make him my primary care doctor event hough he is an ENT surgeon. (till this day I call his clinical secretary and ask for his advice on other procedures and issues I may have) For almost 2 years I had several symptoms and saw SEVERAL doctors (various specialists) who all ran the same blood tests, treated each issue SEPARATELY, never having the sense to recognize their significance collectively. Countless doctors told me they could not find one contributing factor to my suffering, and were unsure what was causing my afflictions, BRUSHING OFF MY SUFFERING to "aging" or "depression" (I was happy and 33 years young)! Within ONE VISIT Dr.Rassekh knew IMMEDIATELY what was wrong with me!!! He read my medical history PRIOR to sitting down with me. That medical history, COMBINED with my current conditions, lead him to make an educated guess on my diagnosis and he was ON POINT! After years of suffering with every thing from hair loss to kidney stones to broken bones, he fixed my problem with one simple surgery. He is brilliant. He listens. He researches. He DELIVERS RESULTS. Quite simply, DR. RASSEKH MAKES YOU BETTER AGAIN! He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and will take the time to really listen to his patients, even if he has a full schedule of others waiting. I am so completely impressed with his proficiency, course of treatment for my ailments, surgical skills and medical advice. Dr.Rassekh is an exceptional surgeon, a gentleman, an exceptional doctor. I highly recommend his practice. Clearly Rassekh is the BEST!

Dishonest to his patients

Don't trust Dr. Rassekh's word. The procedures and treatments he schedules don't match the ones he discusses with you, and he delegates a lot of his work (including surgery) to his interns. Make sure you read all your hospital papers and see how they contradict the fairy tales you hear in his office. I felt like he wanted me to be a Guinea Pig to be practiced on with unnecessary biopsies.
