November 17, 2020
did not listen to a word i said. they need to look at the chart of their patient and learn about them instead of walking in blind

Hassan could benefit from improved bedside manner. Seemed annoyed when I wanted to give my input about my issues. Didn't feel listened to.

Dr. Hassan and his resident were very professional and possess a great bedside manner. Very explanatory and transparent with decision processes.
October 28, 2019
The provider did not stay in the room longer than 5 minutes. He did not answer my questions clearly and care for my concerns. He viewed my incision from afar and did not inspect closely to make sure nothing was wrong.
October 28, 2019
He was very cool and business-like; his bedside manor can be improved.
July 13, 2019
last time (2017), Dr. Hassan was a bit confusing as to my diagnosis and plan of care. Today was great, direct and clear, even made a joke
June 24, 2019
Dr. Hassan was very kind and thorough with his questions, exam and explanations.
June 06, 2019
I know my situation has been difficult for the doctors to figure out, however I felt Dr was condescending towards me and made me feel like I was making things up. He didn't know what to do with me yet seemed frustrated with me because I didn't know what to do either. He gave me no information about other possibilities of what the pain could be, however my family physician shared with me what he and Dr. Hassan had been discussing for several days. I left very upset simply because of the way he made me feel. Dealing with extreme pain for over a week and having no idea what is causing it is scary. Being told I made it worse because I went to church on Sunday was upsetting, especially since I was not given any directions when I left the hospital to do nothing.
