She is an excellent surgeon, and little did I know how much better I would feel having the surgery...I am a senior citizen and had reservations about general anesthetic . but came through it with no complications. I feel so much lighter and have so much more energy every day. At 74 years old, and having these improvements to the quality of my life is the greatest compliment I can give you , Dr. SaizRodriguez. Thank You So Much. Will see you next week for my last follow up appointment.

Dr.Saiz is an EXCELLENT Dr./Surgeon. I had severe prolapse, and awful anxiety over this surgery and what surgeon to address my issues. After meeting Dr.Saiz, I had such a strong sense of trust. She is so knowledgeable, performed additional tests-which she is v gentle, direct, and informative. Dr. Saiz explained my entire surgery beforehand to my husband & I. I’m almost 4 weeks post-op and feel terrific. She truly is a “Highly Skilled Surgeon”. Even after being discharged from hospital Dr. Saiz did call me to check and see how all was going. I felt really well after surgery with minimal pain that I had to read my post-op instructions every day as not to over-do or compromise my surgery. She is the “BEST” ladies on many levels Dr. Saiz’s staff ~Great also! Celine and Vanessa are very pleasant and very helpful as well. Hopefully every aspect of my review shows 5 STARS!

Dr. Saiz is a very professional, a thorough communicator and she genuinely cares about her patients. She performed surgery on my bladder 6 weeks ago, and I am well on the road to recovery. I highly recommend her for your pelvic issues.

Dr. Saiz is a very professional and caring physician/surgeon. I've never had surgery before so I was very anxious; and then I found out my surgery was a difficult one so that was even more stressful. She really put my mind at ease. With every examination she explained exactly what she was doing. When I went for my surgical consultation Dr. Saiz explained everything in depth to myself and my daughter. She answered all of our questions and concerns thoroughly. My surgery went well and I feel like I have my life back. I can't thank Dr. Saiz enough. She makes you feel so comfortable through the whole process. All I can say is she is the best!

Dr.Saiz is an excellent, knowledgeable and caring doctor. During our consult she took her time reviewing all test results and explained the surgical procedure. I wish I found her last year. I would have saved myself much discomfort. She was my lifesaver!

She was amazing during my whole progress of getting surgery. She explained everything so well. She seriously changed my life for the better. I had a mesh sling placed for bladder inconsistency. I’m so glad I trusted her.

Dr Saiz is very professional, straightforward and caring physician/surgeon. I am currently 2 weeks post op from Bladder prolapse repair and hysterectomy and doing well. I had prolapse repair done twice before (2016 and 2017) by a different physician and I can tell you that Dr Saiz is much more thorough and proficient in what she does. Her office staff, particularly Vanessa, is kind, patient and very supportive. I can recommend Dr Saiz without reservation.

Dr. Saiz is *very* thorough in explaining things and I never felt rushed. She was upfront about possible risks and complications, and my procedure went well. Very minimal discomfort afterward. She is the best!

Dr Saiz Rodriguez has a cookie cutter approach to treatment. Offers the same treatment to all of her patients. The office was OK but the garbage bin in the examining room was over flowing with medical waste. Dr Saiz ordered antibiotics based on a lab result. Never notified me, I only found out when pharmacy called to see why I had not picked up my prescription.

Dr. Saiz, is kind, caring, and very patience she know what she is doing! Dr. Saiz speaks to you before you go into the exam room, listens to your concerns. Than as she examines you, she explains what she is doing & what she recommends. Dr.Saiz gives you all the information you need to know. A day after the surgery she contact me and made sure I feel well .Dr.Saiz asked me to call here at any time if I am in real pain and feel that I need her.

I avoided surgery to repair my growing symptomatic cystocele until it interfered with my life. Robotic repair went great! I am cured and feel fabulous. I am glad that I waited to experience this excellent surgeon. I cannot stop singing her praises. I advise any woman considering this repair to see her- before the FDA wrongly bans mesh use. In the experienced surgical hands, there are no mesh issues.

I am two weeks post surgery. From the first visit to my last Dr. Saiz has explained everything to me. She made sure my pain was controlled. After I was home she checked in with me to see if I was comfortable and told me to call her if there were any problems. She is a wonderful Doctor. I am so happy my Dr. in Sussex county recommended her.
