Dr Kassabian is an extremely, kind, thorough, and attentive professional physician. I recommend him highly.
Dr.Kassabian was recommended to me when I had a kidney stone attack. Dr.Kassabian immediately saw me and was friendly and completely thorough. The staff was friendly as well!
No doubt he's a very smart and well experienced doctor and I have faith in his skill and knowledge, but....a little humility and bedside manner would go a long way with this doctor. We are humans, not machines. We have feelings and concerns, we are not numbers or statistics. His communication skills and patient relations could stand some improvements. Add those minor qualities and you would have an EXCELLENT doctor.
Everyone there went above and beyond,staff very kind and thoughtful.. it's was like clockwork..very smooth.
It was my first time at Georgia Urology, First of all they helped squeezing me in as I was a Walk In Customer and they only do by appointment. After this Dr. Vahan Kassabian and his team took good care of mine and suggested me right Rx and helped me in understanding the process.
Great practice
It was first visit here and I liked the way they operate.
The attending nurse, is one of the nicest in the medical field. She is always cheerful and friendly and attentive to my needs. Just first rate in her field and a real asset to this practice.
Professional throughout
Dr. Kassabian has been my doctor for quite some time now. It started as a simple visit for preventive medicine . . . in an area I didn't want to address. Because of his kind, open and honest manner . . . and his thoroughness, my visit is something I no longer dread . . . and almost look forward to!
