Horrible bedside manner at he hospital. Does not care about his patients. Insensitive. Blames you for your medical issues. Mumbles and talks under his breathe when he walks away. When you call him out on it, he turns around and argues/yells at you. Super disrespectful. Stay away!

I had surgery with dr Saenz in dec 2016. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful, compassionate doctor. He was so patient and explained everything so nicely. I'd recommend him highly

he runs like a "mom & pop" office & nepotism was noted because the lady there who misreprisents herself as a nurse needs a lot of education & training & he is very unprofessional & unethical; provides poor care
