- 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.
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.

not clean Anesthesiologist did not wear gloves.prep room was a carton room no privacy.nurse was nice but the anesthesiologist was scary and rude. the procedure room did not look like a procedural room. The whole time I was laying there waiting for the doctor i was looking at the room. There was a extension cord hanging from the ceiling a old TV on a cart that looked like it was from the 70'S like the ones from middle school..The cabinets look dirty and there was a lady that said she was the Anesthesiologist not friendly she drew up the medicine and never wore gloves. I laid there thinking what am I doing should i leave? When I woke up I told my husband I was going to tell my Doctor that referred me to him not to use him as a referral because the facility was not clean and the procedure room did not look like a procedure room.Bad experience. after all that I was very sore the next day. My husband had a hard time believing me. Because he had the same Colonoscopy procedure done with a different Doctor and different office three months prior to mine no problem he was good in a hour gas all gone, going no with his day. But me I was in pain still the next day.I called the office and they called Hassan He said for me to go to the ER. Seven hours at the ER and a urine and blood sample ,Three x-rays , Morphine for pain , CT and they told me I had DIVERTICULITIS gave me Three prescriptions and sent me home still in pain. If you need a Gastroenterology Doctor go to another place. There are a lot better places to go where they are clean and have a better procedure room and you won't get sick. I would never go back
I have been a patient of Dr. Hassan's for approx. 15 years. Dr. Hassan has performed both GI tests on me... upper and lower and as much as I despise any invasive medical tests with any doctor, I must admit that Dr. Hassan was by far the very best GI doctor ever!! I love his beside manner and his calming ability just before procedure time. Dr. Hassan took the time to devote to me full medical attention and listened to me quite sternly. Excellent doctor !!! Have highly recommended to others.
HR Gastro is a "medical mill." Only after multiple calls to staff, to leave messages for Dr. Hassan, time spent researching my own symptoms and related history, was I able to convince that a particular procedure was not warranted. After only one year since my last procedure/visit, I had to complete multiple forms that repeated the same information, because as I was told, the doctor didn't have time to check a central record system, (which I later discovered, doesn't exist)., Finally I listened to my spouse, and began arrangements to switch to her doctor. The debacle w/HR Gastro continued as evidenced by 1) losing the faxed release of medical information form, 2) not indicating in my records that I was leaving HR Gastro, 3)trying three different times to schedule a procedure after being informed that I was changing doctors.
My mom had a botched routine endoscope by this M.D. He removed part of her colon, due to a endoscopy error on his part. Then, he resewed her colon incorrectly and so poorly; she couldn't function without Miralax, softeners, etc. It took almost 2 years (even followed up with this MD and he admitted to his error â but not to the full extent of it). After another GI, several tests, additional appointments, time + another surgery, she still has colon problems. Her colon was straightened out by the more competent gastroenterologist. Now, she has mega colon problems, on a good day. Due to VA malpractice statutes; by the time it took to realize this doctor was the reason for all her problems, >2 years had gone by. Her quality of life took a downwards turn because 1) she has to be near a bathroom at all times, 2) her digestive system doesn't work the same, 3) she doesn't digest nutrients that would have been acquired by the missing section, 4) this botched surgery was b/n 4-5 years ago, and 5) she still has colon problems that would not have happened if she never had met this GI doctor. While this physician may not have any sanctions as a result; it just means that he was not affected, personally, due to the ridiculous 2 year statute of limitations (during which time she was still trying to figure out what was wrong). If you have a loved one, or you are looking for yourself, I would encourage you to steer clear of this physician!
