I have found his staff to be excellent and caring. Yes the wait can be long, but it seems to be like that with all doctors. Dr. Assi is caring, listens to what you have to say and gets things done! I wouldn't think of seeing anyone else but him.

There is always a long wait well beyond the scheduled appt time even though I am always on time. Staff is oblivious. THe doctor rushes in - half listens - and is always leaving for "an emergency". I began this relationship in 2004 and at that time was well pleased but this office has continued to go downhill & I am seeking another careguver.
