    Reviewed on January 10th, 2018  •  Verified patient
    Doctor Shaireen is a lovely, young and passionate professional. She took the time to know me and listen to my concerns, this never occurred with my previous family doctor - he was always in a rush. I have this pain in my thigh and my previous doctor said I should learn to live with the pain (!!!!), doctor Shaireen said: "let's investigate this until we find what is causing this pain". I don't need to say any further. She is awesome!

    She was great! It was my first time meeting her. I felt very comfortable and feel confident that she’ll have my best interests at heart. Very open minded to both traditional and natural remedies. Exactly what I am looking for in a physician.

    The receptionists were nice. I saw the docs 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time, but I think that is pretty typical for doctors. First we got to know each other a bit, went through medical history and concerns, then booked an exam. Great stuff!

  • It was a pleasant meet and greet.
    Reviewed on September 26th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    I was put in a consultation room earlier than my appointment which was great. Dr. Kassam was very welcoming and put me at ease. She took the time to speak to me at length about my medical history by asking me relevant medical questions. Sometimes, some doctors just ask how he or she can help me that particular day. I hope to continue seeing her for my medical needs. I am due for a full physical this coming Thursday. As to your offices, it was very clean and professional. Hope it stays that way.

    Reviewed on August 11th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    It was a good first visit, it was basically the doctor asking me for health history and her explaining how she would like to proceed with additional visit for a physical and blood work ect. She was very pleasant and easy to talk to.

    I was seeking a new family physician who is closer to me. The whole process through Opencare was extremely efficient. The appointment was confirmed immediately following the request. Meet & greet occurred within one week and I was scheduled for my physical the following week.

    I arrived 30 mins early due to some error in trip planning, and they were able to get me in to see her way before my appointment. Dr. Kassam is very outgoing and easy to talk to. Definitely looking forward to working with her.

    Reviewed on May 17th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    I accomplished more with this doctor in 15 minutes at a meet and greet appointment then I've accomplished with my old family doctor in 20 years. She was excellent. Answered all questions and concerns I had and reassured me that anything I needed to get checked would get looked into! My old doctor never did anything, no physical exams or sending me for any tests I needed but Dr. Shaireen has already made another appointment for a physical!

    I have only gone in for a "meet & Greet" so far, but my initial feeling is that Dr. Shaireen has her stuff together, and is very accommodating and supportive. She was able to make me feel comfortable in an otherwise stark institutional atmosphere.

    I only had a meet and great appointment so can't speak too much to her actual medical care yet but it seems like she's really interested in looking into any concern or issue I might have as well as looking into preventative measures. Looking forward to our next appointment!

  • Dr. Kassam Was Great
    Reviewed on January 19th, 2017  •  Verified patient
    Dr. Kassam seemed very interested in providing 360 degree primary health care. I have a number of issues that I've needed addressed for some time, and was let down by my longtime doctor. Dr. Kassam and I spoke briefly and identified these issues, and decided to move forward with a comprehensive physical to address my health concerns and hopefully start to ameliorate each of these long-term problems. I'm very excited to finally get the quality health care I've been trying to access for so long with my last sweet, but woefully overworked GP. After my first appointment, I'm reinvigorated and happy, but I think I'd be able to provide a more thorough assessment after 6mos.
