Dr Kassim is one of a kind. Vanderbilt and I are very fortunate to have him on board!! If he were not here, I'd probably go home to UAMS. We love Dr Kassim! His staff is great, also!

Dr. Kassim, Natalie, and the entire team in the Sickle Cell Clinic are amazing! I'm grateful for their expertise and the care they provide. I fly to TN from another state in order to keep Dr. Kassim as my physician.
