What People Say About Dr. Scott Sanitate, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Sanitate seems only interested in using physical therapy and no medication. My daughter has a severe injury and had been on several medicines to make her life bearable. Dr. Sanitate does not care and has refused to refill or prescribe any medicine for her. She has been unable to complete even one PT appointment due to the pain. She cannot sleep or even pick up her small child. I asked him if he would give her something to make her at least a little more comfortable. He refused. No compassion

I was a patient under workers Comp for 2 1/2 years with Dr. Sanitate who didn’t help what so ever. He dropped me with no reason and no meds, I would not recommend this practice especially this Dr due to his negligence in doing this type of things to people. My lawyer is looking for anything that we can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to someone else, abandoned and neglect if I said had to say. Even his nurse has an attitude

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!!!!
