in Queen Creek, AZ |
I had severe, chronic, debilitating diverticulitis. For years, this condition had been minimized by other physicians. Dr. Sahai took this seriously and immediately had the necessary testing arranged for surgery. I had the diseased portion of my colon removed, with a temporary ileostomy. The ileostomy was reversed 7 weeks after the initial surgery. Dr. Sahai was direct, concerned, dedicated and kind. He was also AVAILABLE, responding to questions after hours. I have no doubt he saved my life.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr. Sahai is direct and informative, answering and encouraging questions. He gives complete clear answers. I felt completely involved and assured in every step of the treatment process. The entire office staff is professional, considerate and respectful. I highly recommend Dr. Sahai.
in Casa Grande, AZ |
He is caring and kind, and is a terrific surgeon. I would recommend him very high on a list.
in Scottsdale, AZ |
Dr Sahai and his staff are the best in their field. I went from a diseased and frankly almost dead man back to a vibrant human with hope and a quality of life only obtained through the skill of Doc Aalok. His staff also helped me when down, and talked me off of the ledge several times. A blessing in every sense Aalok is an angel.
