Dr Sahas is the best. When others were unable to help me, he did many tests and did not give up. He is the most intelligent and compassionate doctor ever and I have heard this from many other patients. I highly recommend him. Thanks Dr. Sahas for your help!

I had an afternoon appointment in Dr. Sahas' office in Hanford, CA on Friday, July 13th. After waiting in the waiting area for more than an hour, I was put in an exam room for another 45 minutes! I went to the front desk to ask if I could reschedule because I needed to get back to work but I was told that I would have to wait another 2 months if I rescheduled! Was told he was one of the best endocrinologists, sad I never actually got to see him. Very rude staff!

The Doctor is nice, it is a shame his office is run so poorly. I have spoken to many patients at my surgeons office who are having the same problems. No returned calls, no one answers the phone, I missed my last appt because I got lost and needed help getting there, yes I do not have a gps, so, they never did answer, or call me back. So the doctor may be not so good cause he does not see his staff ruining his professional credit. Well, the patients are talking and it is not good.

One of the few physicians who actually listen to what the patient says. Doesn't jump to conclusions; but orders the correct tests and evaluates the results carefully before prescribing medication. Explains reasons in a clear concise manner. He's very pleasant and treats you with respect. Easily FIVE stars.

I am pharmacy student and I will be doctor of pharmacy next year. I have been Dr. Sahasranam's patient for about one year. He is very knowledgeable physician. He listens to patient carefully and spends enough time with every patient. His diagnose is excellent. He is very professional meantime very friendly. I recommend him to every individual that is looking for a good endocrinologist. I give him 6 stars instead of 5 stars!!!
