It's good that Leslie has started coming in before Dr. Kassim comes in. I think she gives him a briefing that helps prepare him for what's going on with the patient currently. I'm not sure how much time he has to look over things before he comes in the exam room because his schedule is so full. They make a good team. We appreciate them.

I would recommend them to anyone. That is how I found out about Dr.Kassim and his staff was by a family member. Best decision I have ever made.
