This doctor made me worse than I was before he did surgery. I pointed out to him that I still had open wounds. He sent a letter to my GP stating that he achieved what he planned to do and that I did not have a healing problem. I have 3 open wounds that have not healed which I did not have before he did surgery. He almost killed me twice in 3 surgeries. I have an internal Staph infection that has not gone away. I am in pain most of the time. He had promised me that he was going to get rid of the infections. He never did. BEWARE of HIM!

Phenomenal Surgeon. Needed resections for Crohn’s Disease. Ref’d to Dr. Sinanan who turned out to be experienced with complex gut surgery. Crohn’s can present complications & tricky situations, especially in re: surgery. Dr. Sinanan calmly listened to my concerns & diligently put in place a support structure which made sure I healed well. I found him compassionate, caring, absolutely stellar in his skills as a surgeon, and w/a great sense of humor. 360-degree excellent care, & kind heart.

I have had 4 major abdominal surgeries in my life and I can unequivocally say that Dr. Sinanan was the best surgeon bar none. From my first consultation, to my surgery, to my recovery, to my follow up consultation, his care was exceptional.

Amazing surgeon!!!! I was a staff RN at UW for 4 years and he was and is one of the most respected physicians there! He Saved my aunts life by doing an emergency Wipple surgery 12 years ago in her 60s for what ended up being mental cancer that presented like Pancreatic cancer. She is alive and well to this day! Thank you Dr Sininan!!!!
