Received my first visit with Dr Sanitate, very impressed. I was seeing him on a referral for a workman's comp case, he is highly knowledgeable, caring and has all the attributes of a well-rounded physician. His exam was thorough, asked relevant questions and best of all, provided useful, meaningful advice - and in laymen's terms. Likelihood of seeing him again, or recommending him to family and friends - not a moment's hesitation.
I'm only giving 1 star because I have to. This guy is a complete jerk. My fiancé is in excruciating pain due to a herniated disc in his lower back and we've been stuck seeing Sanitate due to workers comp. today we went in and he said there was nothing more I can do, no pain meds, this is going to be your life and time is on your side, he's not a surgical candidate. He was only seeing/ pretending to treat my fiancé to make money. He tried all these controversial treatments with no relief. RUN!!!!
