What People Say About Dr. Saifuddin Soniwala, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The good: He does have good beside manners. He's compassionate and cares for your quality of life when determining a treatment. He explains things well if you ask him. Friendly and nice office setting. The bad: Unfortunately, like many Drs. he practice standard of care. If your conditions is beyond that and need real expert help/advice, he's lacking. He doesn't help much with finding new treatment options. YOU have to do the work and bring it to him. YOU have to find other experts, clinics, trials, testing, etc., because he will not help you with this. This is an exhausting process to go through when you're sick and need his help and guidance on these things. I'm very disappointed in Dr. Soniwala in this regard. If you have a condition that will respond to conventional treatment, he's capable. Don't expect him to go above and beyond that. He's not an 'outside' the box thinker. You are your own best advocate!

At first I felt safe and in good hands, then the truth prevailed. Dr. Soniwala does a lot of talking, but he doesn't listen. The cancer part he treats, but not the damages thereafter. All he has are reasons why, and it's always the chemo that did it. Oh, Keep an eye on your billing too, making sure proper codes are used or you will be stuck with a high bill. I am truely disappointed in Dr. Soniwala. People with cancer have enough to worry about. Shame on you Soniwala.

His answer to every problem you have is, "as you know, that's not my area of expertise." Oh, you just pour the rat poison in; you have no input on what it does to a person. This is the standard of care? Dr. Soniwala is completely indifferent about your care.
