Care Philosophy

Dr. Saito feels that living well comes from breathing well and sleeping well. Breathing problems and illnesses rarely go to sleep when you, your child, or your parents does. Disruptions of restorative sleep along with hypoxia during sleep often results in impairment in daytime functioning of both children and adults and increase risk for heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. Dr. Saito looks forward to providing you and your family members personalized specialty care.

Biography

Dr. Saito received his medical degree from Temple University  School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pa., and completed his residency at Orlando Regional Health System, Orlando, Fla.  His pediatric pulmonology fellowship was completed at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, N.C.   His sleep training was completed at Cook Children's Medical Center, Fort Worth, TX.Dr. Saito was an assistant professor at Texas A&M School of Medicine and the director of Pediatric Pulmonary and Allergy at Scott & White Hospital in Texas. 

He specializes in the care of children and adults with respiratory disorders such as chronic lung diseases of prematurity along with asthma, COPD, emphysema, bronchiectasis, and pulmonary fibrosis.  

From a sleep standpoint, he specializes in obstructive sleep apnea along with all disorders of sleep including restless leg syndrome and insomnia.  Dr. Saito is especially keen on finding and fixing what he calls, "TOXIC SLEEP."  This is a scenario where sleep disruption due to disordered breathing plus hypoxia (lack of oxygen) leads to global health failure.  He likens this to drinking dirty water contaminated by lead (known toxin).  Studies show a reduction in the length of life by as much as 10 years when sleep apnea with hypoxia was not treated.  

In summary, when sleep problems are correctly identified and addressed, children and adults not only get more sleep, they get better quality sleep and live longer healthier lives.  Thus, optimization of our restoration drive through better sleep health not only is essential to getting more life in our days, but also helps us get more days in our life.

in Huntington Beach, CA |
I was diagnosed with sleep apnea 5 years ago and tried CPAP but just couldn't wear it b/c the mask was hurting my nose. Machine went in the closet after a couple of weeks and that was the end of that. Fast forward to today, I can't sleep without my CPAP! Thanks to Dr. Saito. He explained everything to me, adjusted my CPAP pressure, and refitted me with a more comfortable mask that went under my nose and now... I am a happy camper. My wife is real happy with me too.

You can tell that Dr. Saito cares about you and your health from the moment you walk in the door. He and his team are very through in treating you and you come out of your appointment very informed about your health. I was having a lot of health issues when I came to see him. He helped me get my asthma under control. In addition, he found that I have sleep apnea. I have so much energy now and I am actually losing weight!
in Victorville, CA |
Dr. Saito and his staff are very classy. I needed an experienced and capable specialist opinion for my condition outside of the regular team I was working with. I called, explained my situation, and his office was very accommodating to my schedule and traffic delays. I came prepared with all my paperwork. His experienced staff was very friendly, organized, and fast. Then Dr. Saito fully reviewed my paperwork, explained my situation, and generously answered all of my questions in great details.
in Laguna Woods, CA |
I don't think i've ever written a review for anyone before this. But Dr John Saito is the best doctor I have ever had and his staff makes the experience of going for a visit to his office so enjoyable I actually look forward to it. It may be the only time in my life I have ever felt that a doctor and his staff actually cared about me. And that is saying something. Dr John gets my highest recommendation.
