    This was a terrible experience. She rushed in and out; prescribed a drug that was dangerous because of my existing heart condition,which indicated she did not review my record . For thumb arthritis gave me a drug I can't take or surgery. I had it injected under ultrasound which she dismissed and it worked. No bedside manner. I would not recommend her.

    Dr. Sabesan really cares about her patients and outcomes. I have a complex shoulder history and she has always been there/been available when needed (both pre and post op). I highly recommend her!
    I had the worst experience of my life. She prescribed me an anti inflammatory that has an ingredient I am allergic to in it!!! It took 3 weeks to get a hold of her because her receptionists never called back my pharmacy. Finally about to get my anti inflammatory today but she was not there so her ta had to try to figure out what I can have.

    I had the unfortunate experience of a torn bicep. I was referred to Dr. Sabesan and she immediately scheduled me for surgery. The procedure took abt 1 hr 30min and while initially I had a good amt of pain after the surgery, I can say that after a 6 wks, my bicep and arm are almost pain free and Im regaining strength each day. Dr Sabesan was very knowledgeable and direct about what she does. Im so happy to have been lucky enough to have Dr. Sabesan she is a blessing and I cant thank her enough :)
