The doctor herself shows little, if any, compassion. It is as if someone has forced her to work and she really does not want to be there. HEr bad attitude transfers to the workers there. Her office staff is HORRIBLE. The medical assistant gave me a roll of the eyes when we asked where the bathroom was. They treated my elderly mom (who has never been on pain meds) like she was a drug addict. The lab lady gave my mom a cup to pee in. When I asked her for a toilet hat (because my mom is too old and her hand shakes too much to hold a cup and urinate in it), the lady gave us an attitude. She then wrote my mom's name incorrectly on the cup and got upset when I corrected her. I can write more but will stop her by advising you to look for another doctor.

I have Never been talked to or treated in such horrific manner in 58 yrs, as I was by Dr Sahai! Very rude & judgemental, without knowing me, or my history.

This is the only Dr. Sahai I could choose, but Dr. Sahai the surgeon is my doctor. He is an exceptional doctor that gave me excellent care and I have already given his card to a friend that need surgery on his hernia.

She. Judged me as a drug addict after hearing my medications that I had been on for 2 years. Cut one of my pain pills the first day she saw me completely off and the next visit she cut the other dosage off as well I haven't slept in the last week because I have been out off my meds and in chronic pain. Worst doctor I hAve ever seen and I see a lot of doctors for pain, heart conditions, and gi conditions

I have never felt more disrespected by a doctor. She did not listen to a word I said. I have a chronic pain disease and that had no affect on her decisions. I asked for pain management and got one pain pill per day. She also prescribed me a medication that I am severely allergic to and when I pointed that out she looked at my chart and then said "its only a cousin to that medicine". Then I was treated like a drug addict from that point on. Never felt so humiliated at the doctors.

I feel like the second Dr. Sahai walked in and saw my physical status, she was already somewhat pre-judging my disposition. She just about stopped hearing what I was saying shortly after upon hearing my current meds. There was a little back and forth, but from the on, she was hearing me, but not really listening.. One of the worst feelings was that of feeling rushed once it seemed that she had already made her predisposed decision.

Dr. Sahai blindly ordered me to have a series of injections, epidurals, and branch blocks without knowing what exactly was causing my pain. She routinely ran 45 minutes to an hour late, her office was not well kept/clean, and she bills insurance for the maximum time allowed even though she only saw me for 10-15 minutes. After months with no pain relief, she referred me to a spine surgeon who stated none of the treatments done would have helped me as she was injecting the wrong area of my back.
