Houston, TX |
Staff changes constantly. 1 to 2 hour wait for an appointment. Competent Dr but the office is chaos. Does not use a portal; constantly double books appointments.

I came to Dr.Satija after going from doctor to doctor with no improvement what so ever. I have seen dr. Satija for over 6 months now and I am finally able to get some quality of life back. His staff is caring and attend to my needs. The wait time is a lengthy but definitely worth the dedication Dr. satija provides, I highly recommend him.
in Houston, TX |
Great Doctor, I think that he is quite knowledgeable about what is going on with my back. Wonderful, friendly staff also. I would highly recommend him.

Excellent doctor. Very knowledgeable and good bedside manner

A complete flake. The entire experience in my 6 months with him was a joke by medical standards. Wait times 1-3 HOURS (you read that right). Staff is rude and inconsiderate. Just kept putting me on different medications at each visit. Nobody EVER answered phone calls or emails when I was having allergic reactions to his scripts. Was double booked at every appointment made. Pill mill operation is my overall thoughts in this practice.
in Cypress, TX |
Dr Satija has been treating me for recurring lower back pain due to the previous severe back injury and I have been very please with the results from his treatments ! Once you get past his dizzine and ss he really has quite the sense of humor ! I would definitely recommend Dr. Satija! ????????

I have been with Dr. Satija for a few years now. What I appreciate most about him is his truthfulness. Some doctors tell you what they THINK you want to hear rather than what you need to hear. Yet, you know he earnestly cares about helping finding relief for your pain.
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Satija is great, I have seen him for the past three months and he has been compassionate and genuine for my care. His staff, Karen, Melissa, Amaan, and Karla are all great. They will do whatever they can to take care of you. I recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Satija's office is excellent. Professional, friendly, and compassionate staff. There has been a significant change for the better in his office. I can't say enough of Dr. Satija's care for my pain. When I first came to him, I was depressed with nothing to look forward in life. After months of injections and therapy, I can say that I am able to live my life with little to no pain. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to find pain relief.

So professional and great bed side manner.
in Katy, TX |
IF you can get in the service is ok. The office staff is terrible and fairly rude. Dr. Satija is great, but he will only see you if he thinks you are interesting - otherwise you are seeing his PA - who is ok, but doesn't keep track of details well. If you have something that is rare or exciting, he's great. For normal pain maintenance, you are probably better off seeing someone else.
Jonesboro, AR |
Poor communication. Office staff is a joke. Dr satija answered a call on his cell phone during my examination and his staff interrupted several times. I saw him twice and both experiences were terrible.
in Houston, TX |
Had a bad vibe about this place from the minute I walked in. Dr. Satija was very disengaged and showed no interest in my pain. He wrote a prescription for Hydrocodone and that was it. I did not want to be on 2 controlled substances (Hydrocodone plus a muscle relaxer), so I told him I would like to phase out in taking the muscle relaxer. That was a huge mistake and he should have known enough to tell me that. I went back one more time and met with his nurse practitioner. She was even worse.

Dr. Satija listens to his patients & Peggy as well (Nurse Practitioner), he takes his career very serious and the just goes to show what a wonderful doctor he is! I would like to start up with your again, my entire body hurts to the touch. I currently have extreme pain under my sternum that radiates to the right side of my back. I'm loosing my appetite. I f you get this soon, I really want to sit and talk to you.... ~ ADRIANA E.MARTINEZ
