    How was your appointment with Dr. Abbassi?

    Feb 02, 2018
    I had the pleasure of having cataract surgery with Dr. Abbassi and it was great experience from beginning to end. My primary care Doctor cleared me for surgery but due to my current health I could not have any anesthesia because my breathing could possibly stop. Dr. Abbassi played music during the procedure to relax me and successfully did my surgery. I see now great! Couldn’t be more thankful for Dr. Abbassi’s care and services.
