    Great surgeon! Outstanding care! Dr. Sahai has performed 2 successful surgeries on me personally. Nobody will ever open my belly except Dr Sahai. Because I have Crohns Disease I was a "challenging patient" with possibilities of serious complications after surgery. Dr. Sahai was open, honest, approachable with has a caring beside manner. Plus the office staff are terrific!

    I highly recommend both Dr. Sahai and his partner for their exceptional skill. The office staff does the best they can in an environment barely suited for patients. The office entrance is a long walk from the parking lot, and the waiting room is always overcrowded and overheated. Standing room only, never enough chairs. The exam rooms are warm and stuffy, making the long wait for the doctor even more miserable. A fan and a few magazines would help.

    Dr. Aalok Sahai is a great doctor. He always made me feel he had my best interest in my health. He took time to see me everyday after my surgery and gave me his personal cell phone if I needed him with any problems. He is a very professional doctor!!

    Dr. Sahai is a wonderful surgeon and I highly recommend him. It was a very quick turnaround to schedule my surgery. Having the surgery by laparoscopic cuts down on recovery time.

    He has a great bed side manner. He is always on time for appointments. He explains everything we wanted to know.

    I am very happy with Dr. Sahai. He took the time to explain my condition & the surgery in terms I could understand. I would recommend his practice to anyone. Steve

    Dr Rohit Sahai was absent on our follow-up (post-lapro) appointment, and Dr Aalok Sahai was standing in. A stressed & visibly upset personality that day left us shocked about the arrogance that one person would openly express. I hope he really is omnipotent for the sake of those who are suckered into a relationship with him. He's on our Do Not Call list :-)
    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.
