The move to Concierge Medicine was made following long term diverticulitis with abscess, when the care by my former physician was not appropriate to my symptoms. Dr. Kassab has been excellent, responsive, and collaborative. I am a retired VMMC RN and wanted this kind of care. He is an amazing physician. He comes to an appointment prepared, ready to discuss my concerns and takes the time to resolve questions. None of this was the case with my prior physician.
