I was treated by Dr. Pai along with another surgeon with a 6.5 hour surgery and had to fly states away to have this surgery. She did an excellent job, addressed my concerns, checked up on me in the hospital and is there for me if I need her. I will be going back to her in the near future for more surgery because she is worth the effort of traveling. Her skills are amazing and her bedside manner is compassionate

She was clear, answered all my questions. I felt confident entering surgery and it seems like she did an excellent job on yesterday's surgery. I was very nervous before hand. actually, I couldn't have asked for a better surgical experience. Phew!
Acts like it is an inconvience to listen then ignore the patient!!!! Tells only part of the story!! Arrogant and dismissive of patients concerns and preferences. Insistant of tests exclusively for her liability protection that is paid for by the patient. Absolutely no post surgery care or explanation of how it went. Or any contact whatsoever. Would never ever send my worst enemy let alone anyone I know to this arrogant caustic Dr.
