What People Say About Dr. Sandeep Sawhney, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Absolutely HORRIBLE! I saw him in July 2018. Had a very severe issue with my scrotum. He never bothered to give me a full exam, and brushed it off as no big deal. He never even saw the problem. He couldn't have rushed through my appointment fast enough either. Consultation (first time meet) wasn't even 10 minutes. I was rushed to the ER the very next day and emergency surgery was performed by one of his team members. I was later informed, I was just within a mere few hours of being septic.... intubated in the ICU, all because Dr. Sawhney misdiagnosed and masked the issue I was having. STAY AWAY!

Not at all. How many patients can I juggle at the same time. I wanted to kick him in the balls while he was performing his version of a cystoscopy - the 1-minute express with biopsy. Lidocaine was not properly administered. Catheterization was torture.

Dr. Sawhney was punctual and professional. While not a doctor that is going to sit and swap stories with you, he is thorough and to the point. He doesn't waste time with anything other than the reason you are seeing him. Having said that, he will make sure all your questions are answered and explain anything your are unsure of.
