in San Clemente, CA |
Dr. Saini is a thoughtful, experienced, and patient doctor. I have struggled with IBS for a few years and have gone through 3 doctors before a friend referred Dr. Saini to me. He is the only doctor that took the time to listen to my symptoms completely and he was very focused on quality of life...more
