    Dr Sani is an excellent surgeon. He has performed two surgeries on my neck over the last two years with excellent results. However since he relocated to the downtown Rush campus office, his office staff at this location lacks on many fronts. They do not order scripts for the CT's like they promise. This has resulted in wasting at least 2hrs in hold times with imaging after which they tell me the order was never written as promised by the downtown office staff.

    Dr. Sani is not only a brilliant surgeon but his professional manner is outstanding. He was always available to answer questions and he has an incredible NP named Joshua Siebell who was knowledgeable and so very responsive. We have already recommended Dr. Sani to other possible patients.
