Dr. Saigal diagnosed my prostate cancer in March 2020 and, due to a high Gleason score, recommended early treatment. He took the time to fully explain the surgical and radiation options and referred me to a radiologist to further discuss radiation/hormone treatment. I ultimately decided on radical prostatectomy surgery, carried out by Dr. Saigal. The results have been excellent, with no complications, or incontinence issues. My recovery was fast and I was able to resume my normal lifestyle a week later, after removal of the catheter. I was back to a full/strenuous exercise routine within 4-6 weeks. After 4-months my PSA level is still zero. I found the level-of-care to be excellent throughout.

His patients skills are poor. He does not listen or care about you as a person. In my opinion, he is not a true doctor. He is just another technician. Maybe he is a good technician ??? I don't know. He made me feel like I was just a number on a chart.

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.
