Dr Christopher Saigal did my prostate surgery on 02-01-2016 and the out come is excellent. today 05-08-2017 I have no urine retention problems and all the functions are working to its best. I know many who have prostate surgery and end up with problems of ejaculation etc. But thanks much to the Creator of heavens & earth and the Dr. Christopher Saigal, I have No Problems.

His patients skills are poor. He does not explain treatment options and has an arrogant attitude towards patients.
in Bakersfield, CA |
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.
