Dr. K was wonderful & wasn't like other doctors who immediately refer to weight as the source of the problem. He also gave me an honest treatment plan instead of pushing meds and/ or surgery.

Over the years, fate and old age have conspired to require me to visit doctors in a variety of specialties a great deal more than I would have chosen. So I've learned, I guess, to spot a well-run practice and anengaged physician. You'll find both here, and for me that was an extremely pleasant surprise, because the last orthopedist's office I visited was a mess. Thanks and kudos to Dr. Kassapidis and his competent staff.

I would highly recommend Dr. Kassapidis and his office to others. His staff was attentive and actually knew what they were talking about. (Can't find that in lots of doctor offices.)

I travel on Amtrak for several hours to see him and this time I got to his office an hour early and saw him within 5 minutes! He's put in a hip and two knees for me and he's the best.He's very conscientious and very skilled. I can't recommend him highly enough. See him now - you'll be glad you did.

Dr. Kassapidis was very nice & helped explain exactly what's going on with my knee. He had a very even, generous tone. The office does have an assembly line feel and you can tell he's juggling 12 patients at once. But,he was nice enough in the room so it didn't detract from the visit.
