Ratings for Dr. David Cassius
Although I had to wait I did not mind as he took his time and is very very thorough. One reason he runs late is he tries to fit in patients that call in at the last minute because they are in pain. Dr. Cassius will refer out to other Dr's. not in his field and they have always been top notch. I have referred him to others and they are very very satisfied also. He identified a thyroid problem, sent me to Dr. Murray and I have been almost pain free since. Just take a book to read.
Dr. Cassius is a kind, caring man. He'll do whatever he can to fit you into his schedule and he takes all insurance plans. He uses trigger point injections to relieve pain while the patient works in PT to strengthen those areas. In theory, this should allow the patient to work to regain function with minimal pain. NB: There isn't a consensus on what constitutes a trigger point nor is trigger point theory accepted by the medical community at large. This doesn't mean that it doesn't work. Cassius also attempts to help patients reduce/eliminate the amt of pain meds taken however this may increase patients' pain levels. It's not unusual to wait an hour to see him which he says is due to being thorough with every patient. This doesn't explain why he is routinely an hour late for his first appointment of the day. He hasn't always carefully checked into the background of his referrals. At one point, he unknowingly referred patients to a practitioner who wasn't registered to practice in WA.
