What People Say About Dr. Fadi Saba, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I thought I was making an appointment with Dr. Saba, but was assigned to his Physician Assistant instead. A PA is not a doctor. PA had to run out of the office every four or five minutes to check with Dr. Saba. Blood tests were done without fasting. Left messages on four differ voicemails over the course of a full week requesting a prescription with no response. The next week I submitted a written request through the patient portal stating that not submitting the prescription was endangering my health, and I would be filing a complaint with the Medical Board. That got a response. New patient paperwork not shared with those who need it.

Slow- too many drs in this practice and the dr's never bring your patient file or computer anything into the room so he never has your info on hand!

My grandfather passed away last Thursday, but not without suffering throughout the day. This was due to Dr. Saba not responding to calls from the nursing staff at Palm Gardens. When nurses are calling your office continually, that means there is a problem that needs to be dealt with. My grandfather was basically drowning in his own fluid. My mother couldn't even stay because it was so upsetting. The nurse was not happy either with the lack of response - inhumane is all I can say.

Dr Saba and his medical staff is the greatest in the Tampa bay area. They are very professional, and very personal with there patients. I have been a patient with Dr. Saba since 08. I wouldn't change Dr for anything. I am currently in largo medical center for a diabetic ulcer on my foot, and Dr Alandary ( A physician from Dr Saba staff), he has managed to save my toe and regulate my sugars. Thank you ALL OF YOU AT PROFESSIONAL HEALTH CARE OF PINELLAS. MICHAEL HERRICK.
