Verified Patient Reviews
I thought Dr. Vassilev was very knowledgable and somewhat helpful. My only complaint is the very long wait time to see the doctor. I had a 10:15am appointment and was ot seen until after 12pm.
Very easy going and professional. He mentioned a lot of stuff in ways where I could understand.
Dr. Vassilev is an outstanding Doctor whom I have an immense amount of respect for. He has been very helpful and I would reccommend him to anyone. The only reccommendation I have is that staff work on professional, and warm communication skills.
