“Three years ago in August, I was in an automobile accident and life-flighted to Grant MedicalCenter. Dr. Cassandra did surgery on my hand, which was barely hanging on. As soon as the staff walked in and noticed who the doctor was, they were very excited and informed me I had one of the best.”
–Ray Richardson, Patient

“Dr. Cassandra went out of his way to come in the middle of the night to do surgery. I want people to know that there are professionals out that do care, have a genuine concern and a personal touch.”
