His patients skills are poor. He does not explain treatment options and has an arrogant attitude towards patients.

Dr. Saigal performed a radical cystectomtY on me on July 18, 2008. He is a gifted, caring & extremely thorough surgeon. He can be very blunt, but I got along well, and appreciated his Honshu. The procedure was very successful, and I live my life mostly as if there had never been a problem.
