I am seeing Dr. Sajben for my two young sons, referred by a trusted and esteemed pediatric doctor. Her treatment is cutting edge and outside normal parameters yet very effective. She is the abssnt-minded-genius....not great interpersonal skills but highly intelligent and a great specialist doctor you can trust to care for you.

Dr. Sajben pretends to be friendly but is actually incredibly short tempered and mean. She interrupts constantly and is condescending. She actually yelled at me while in her office. I cancelled the second appointment and she still charged me for it through my insurance. She tried to put me on three new drugs at the same time, all of which had intense side effects. I asked her if I could get on one at a time and she became irate.

She is a very knowledgable women in pain management, crps etc! She digs deep to figure out how to help a person and there needs! She treats the whole person not just the symptoms! She will cry w you n laugh w you and you will leave feeling so glad you finally found a dr who actually knows what your talking about! What a blessing she has been for me in my long journey. Plz ignore the negative comments as you won't regret meeting her ??
