January 2016
This was my first visit to Dr. Kassab and to Virginia Mason. My husband and I were switching from a different clinic and doctor. We didn´t know what to expect so were thrilled with our appt. The amount of time, the care and the understanding that we received from Dr. Kassag was fantastic. We are very confident in his skills and are very happy with the change that we have made!

November 2015
I have been seeing Dr. Kasaab for a number of years. At first I felt like he gave a mix of care that was sometimes insensitive, but in the past couple years I have been very pleased with all aspects of my care: quality, patience, careful explanation, respect, knowledge and awareness of my medical history, helping me feel comfortable, etc.

November 2015
I have a lot of respect and affection for Dr. Paul Kassab. To his credit he said that he was going to be a little short timewise with me. I understood and that is not the norm.

November 2015
Although my mother has difficulty understanding English, Dr. Kassab always takes the time to make sure she understands by looking her in the eyes, explaining in very clear sentences, and speaking at her level to make sure she comprehends what he is saying. He is very straight forward yet extremely empathetic in communicating with her, which provides reassurance for any concerns she may have. I can´t imagine a more suitable doctor for my Mom!

November 2015
Dr. Kassab is the best. He listens - I mean really listens! He asks enough questions so that I feel he understands the problem. He´s good at explanations and he is warm -- genuinely and personally warm. He is the reason I come to VM. The office is good - no complaints - but Dr. Kassab´s intelligence and warmth is why I keep coming back.

October 2015
Best Dr. you can ask for and a great humane being.

September 2015
Dr. Kassab is the most caring, compassionate and knowledgeable primary care/Internal Medicine physician I have ever had.

On Patients
"As a primary care provider, I have the opportunity to really get to know patients. I don't take that for granted. I try my best to connect with them and help them learn about their health problems and worries, and enlist them as partners in their overall health care. I see this as an honor and a big responsibility."
