Dr. Kassabian and the staff at GA Urology Glenridge office have provided excellent, efficient and friendly service to me each time I have visited the office. I have a lot of confidence in Dr. Kassabian. I highly recommend Dr. Kassabian and the caring staff at GA Urology Glenridge.
I had a morning appointment, and still waited in the waiting room over 30 minutes.
The staff at Georgia Urology was very helpful and professional with helping me with my problem. The surgical coordinator is one the most professional person I have ever talk with she was very helpful with scheduling my surgery with Dr. Kassabian and I really can't thank her enough for what she did for our family. Thank you Ms. Connie Johnson she's our Christmas Miracle because of the surgery I was able to enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner with my family without any pain or discomfort.
The person that collected blood from my arm did an outstanding job.
Excellent front desk people! Friendly, caring and professional. Was taken back to see the doctor at my appointment time. Dr. Kassabian spent the time necessary to explain my condition and to answer my questions. Highly recommend!
I am always pleased with Georgia Urology, Roswell, I make 16 visits a year 4 to get Eligard injection, urine sample, Doctor Kassabian checking with me and PSA test, 12 visits a year for XGeva Injections. I always enjoy my visits and look forward to them.
Person making my appointment and receptionist were extremely nice, professional, and helpful. Best I've ever experienced. Not used to paying parking to see a physician. My only complaint.
24 years of steady, excellent care
Phone and e-mail reminders were for the wrong office.
Everyone was great. I really like Dr. Kassabian.
