Review for Dr. Satyan

Explained everything. told all possibilities. Nothing drastic.I left feeling he knew exactly what my condition was & how I should deal with it. Gave me step one, two, three& then come back for a review. I was very pleased.

Review for Dr. Satyan

Very disappointed! I am in excruciating pain and Dr did not address. Actually said to me, ' I have thirty five patients and am only one man'. I was so hopeful but unfortunately still in excruciating pain. Literally, he could care less.
