Reconstructive Surgery / Trauma
- Posted on: Jan 6 2016
I would like to take some time to share with you my experience with Dr. Sasson while at Winthrop Hospital. On January 22, 2016 I found myself in the scariest situation I have ever been in personally. An injury occurred at work that landed me in the Emergency Room in a panic. I was seen by an on call doctor who suggested I wait for Dr. Sasson to evaluate my injury. I was hit on my face while working and a swelling began that was considerable and painful. The second Dr. Sasson saw me he made me feel safe and secure. I have never had an injury like this and with both my parents deceased I was very upset and overwhelmed. He pulled me aside into a side room and worked on a procedure to reduce my swelling. He provided me with strict instructions as I left the hospital. I quickly searched Dr. Sasson’s education background and reviews online and like my experience there was nothing undesirable to say.
Unfortunately, my injury enlarged again overnight and I went back to the Emergency room in the morning. I was scared to death with the thought of surgery and asked my nurse to please call my Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Sasson was called in through a blizzard and sat next to me and explained what he was going to do and that I would not feel a thing. His bedside manners were more than I could have ever asked for as well as his prompt reaction to my situation. I never felt rushed into anything and really learned about what was going on before any steps were taken.
Follow up visits at his office have also been wonderful. He truly cares about every patient and their needs. He is cautious and concerned with my feelings and shares his opinions up front. His staff is delightful and well organized, you never feel rushed or forgotten about through an appointment.
Without any hesitation I will say Dr. Sasson is one of the greatest and most compassionate doctors out there. There are only positive things to say about this superior Plastic Surgeon, you should be honored to have him on your team at Winthrop Hospital.
Thank you for reading and listening to a thankful and appreciative patient.
