Conditions treated ranged from joint pain, gastrointestinal conditions, emotional trauma, and gynecological concerns requiring pelvic exams.
Dr. Kassam is a sports enthusiast. She grew up playing competitive fastpitch softball, floor hockey, and basketball and is an avid Vancouver Canucks and Seattle Seahawks fan. She also enjoys spending time with her nieces and nephews, and traveling.

For the first time in 5 years Polo Health has had to make some price modifications to stay current with the rising costs that we are being faced with. There have recently been steep increases on medical supplies and injectables, and as such, we have had to raise the prices on select services and treatments.
We have, and always will, remain mindful of these price increases and how they impact your ability to continue receiving treatment. We strive to keep our prices affordable to allow for ease of access, and will continue doing so.
Please be assured we hope and plan to maintain these prices moving forward as best we can. What you can expect is a $5.00 to $15.00 increase on select services and treatments. The front desk team will be able to specify which treatments and services this applies to.
We thank you for all your continued support, we truly appreciate you and are grateful for that. We will continue to provide the best level of care and support moving forward.
Cheer and all the best in 2022.
Thank you from the entire Polo Health and Longevity Centre Team
