Worst Doctor I have ever met. He will not listen to patient when they are trying to explain their health insurance to them and how things have to be done a certain way to be covered. He was treating multiple family members and ordered wrong test on wrong individuals terrible terrible doctor should not be in practice. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone

Dr. Saxena is one of the few physicians who's sat down and truly discussed the chronic pain I've struggled with daily since 2013. He is kind, soft spoken, and professional in his demeanor. What I like most about Dr. Saxena is his attentiveness while staying compassionate, and straight forward during my visits. I feel comfortable under his care and guidance. Lastly, I feel so fortunate to have his support and have developed an enormous amount of trust in him. I highly recommend Dr. Saxena!
