What People Say About Dr. Sanjaya Saxena, MD
Reply
We saw Dr. Saxena as an urgent substitute standing in for our regular doctor, for our teenage child. He went above and beyond the call of duty getting to know the complicated case and giving us very informed and detailed recommendations. He spent much more time with us than he officially had to, to cover all relevant issues. He obviously has a wealth of experience, coupled with a pleasant manner and caring attitude. Very trustworthy!
