Recommend unreservedly! 2/1/2011

I have recently finished treatment with Dr. Kassir and would recommend him unreservedly. He is an extremely gifted physician and a compassionate human being. I have battled with clinical depression, and struggled with other self-defeating behaviors for most of my life. Over the last 25 years, I have been treated by a number of different physicians and been on several different medications with no lasting or significant improvement. I was beginning to think that this was the best I could hope for when I was referred to Dr. Kassir by someone whose opinion I trusted. Dr. Kassir’s approach was different from what I had previously experienced. My treatment consisted mainly of ISTDP, an innovative type of psychotherapy, combined with medication management and traditional Cognitive-Behavioral therapy. (ISTDP or Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy, is a technique in which Dr. Kassir has had extensive training.). Unlike prior treatments which tended to deal only with the symptoms of the underlying problem (and offering only temporary relief), Dr. Kassir’s use of ISTDP addressed the root cause of my problems and depression. I have to say that the work was at times difficult and very painful. It required maximum effort on my part and I was not always willing. However, Dr. Kassir was always patient and focused. Therapy was not a magic cure-all; my life is not perfect, but I feel that now I can deal with whatever comes up in a positive, healthy way. I found Dr. Kassir to be intelligent, professional, caring, encouraging and non-judgmental. (He is also an excellent diagnostician. After seeing me for only a few weeks, he suggested I be tested for sleep apnea, something no other doctor had even considered. I was tested and found to have significant sleep apnea and am now being treated for it.) Additionally, Dr. Kassir was always available if I had a question, and accommodating if I needed to reschedule an appointment. I trust his judgment and value his medical opinion. I recommend him wholeheartedly! more

Buyer Beware! 2/12/2010

He has a very mechanical approach to therapy. He states that I was paying for his time, when I intended to pay for his expertise. He was consistently late and yawned during sessions! I felt like I was being strung along with promises of profound change which indicates to me greed and questionable ethics. If you have time to waste and money to burn, you can give him a try. Don't expect guidance from him, though, if the therapy or the therapist is not a good match for you. Save some extra money and time to undo any harm he might do. Pros: always available Cons: unprofessional conduct, greedy, mechanical and yawns! more

He's the best! 11/24/2009

Dr. Kassir was fantastic. I am so glad my family doctor referred me to him. He was more attentive and helpful than my previous therapist and I wish I knew about him sooner. Sometimes the therapy was hard, and I had to do my part, but he didn't waste my time and helped me face things I needed to face to get well. His approach really made a difference in my life and I feel like I can finally reach my full potential. He deserves his reputation for being a smart, caring, capable, and conscientious doctor. more
