18/07/13 5 5 5 5 There is no better pediatrician than Dr. Elkassir. I absolutely love her. She is not only extremely knowledgeable but has the best bedside manner anyone could ask for. I am in my 20's and I still go to Dr. Elkassir because she is just that amazing. She has never once refused to see me, and has always made it a point to fit me into her busy schedule if I was sick. She is truly one of a kind!!!

21/05/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Elkassir is amazing. I have a 5 year old and have switched her to 4 different doctors because none were satisfactory. Dr. Elkassir is teh one! She is kind and knowledgeable. Office staff is friendly. If I have a question or concern the DR calls me right back and does NOT seem annoyed. Only thing is that the office is usually kept very warm but not a big deal at all. I will be bringing my child here and any future children so long as she is practicing.

14/08/08 5 2 5 5 Dr. Elkassir is the very best doctor. Both my sons love her. Her bedside manner should be published to teach other doctors how to treat patients and parents. My oldest son is now 20 years old an unfortunatly has to go to a different doctor next year. He wants to keep seeing doctor Elkassair and said when he has kids they will be going to her. Again she is the best choice for your kids. No ands, ifs or buts about it.  Respond
