Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Saini remained committed to finding the cause of my symptoms even sending my slides of biopsy for review to Mayo which helped clinch the diagnosis of the rare disease I have. She is managing it locally and I am at ease.

Horrible! Absolutely no follow-up on labs and tests. I had to make several calls to ask for my results and when there was something concerning written on a test that information was not relayed to me, the patient. Not a good experience with Dr. Saini. I'll have to find a new pulmonologist.
