What People Say About Dr. Stephen Saris, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
This doctor makes up his mind from a handful (not complete) list of medical records before meeting the patient. He barely lets the patient or family speak, stating he already knows and understands. This typically results in dangerously incorrect outcomes which could ultimately lead to death. He also discriminates and is judgemental. He may have been good in his younger days, but he is now too arrogant and pompous to correctly diagnose or treat.

I had a pituitary tumor that they recommended surgery for in Boston. Dr. Sariss did at Gamma knife procedure and I was home for lunch. Have had no trouble with it since. Glad I was able to avoid surgery.

He was so nice to deal with and took as much time as needed in conversation. Follow up was every day while I was in hospital, called me at home after I left sooo nice. He was respected by every health worker I came in contact with at the hospital.

Dr. Saris performed my surgery for pain relief for Trigeminal Neuralgia in 2010. I could never find the words to express my gratitude. I came to him with the most excruciating pain I’ve ever experienced. I left his office pain free and continue to be pain free 9 years later.

I also had tic douloureux. I kept falling asleep with my meds, and the pain without them was terrible. Dr. Saris and Dr. Bi did a one hour procedure called a radiofrequency ablation and NO PAIN! Just a little bit of numbess in my cheek that is WAY better than the pain. I can brush my teeth, shave, all the basics. Great experience!
