Dr. Kassar is an excellent doctor. Not only is his knowledge extensive, but he takes the time to explain his thought process and recommendations, ask for patient feedback/questions and to look at the broad picture of my diabetic care. This allows us to create a treatment plan that manages my disease and not just a collection of symptoms. I have been a patient of Dr. Kassar's for 13 years and have referred four other patients to him, all of whom are in much better health and receiving much better care of their respective diseases. At least two of them have, in turn, referred others to Dr. Kassar. If Northwestern bestows any honors/awards on its practitioners, Dr. Kassar should receive the highest!

He was very detailed about my health problems and concerns. He took the time to explain things to me in words that I could understand. He really showed concern for my health and he made it a priority to make sure that what he told me I understood all of it. He took his time with me. It was not like he was in a rush to tell me what he had to say and leave. He made sure I understood what he was telling me. He really is a great doctor!!
