Patient Reviews
Oct 24, 2023
After my husband's ophthalmologist chose to ignore a sore on his lower eyelid it became cancerous and needed to be removed and reconstruction needed to be done. After referral to three different doctors we were blessed to be referred to Dr. Kassem. A dermatologist removed the cancer by Mohs procedure and the next day Dr. Kassem did the reconstruction. It was about an 8 week healing progress but when it was done it was like a miracle. Dr. K is gentle, kind, and super skilled. We saw him in Bellingham.
