Dr. Sathe treated me with respect and clearly explained the surgical procedure and recovery. When family members accompanied me to my appointments, he answered their questions as well as mine. The procedure, recovery and recuperation went exactly as Dr. Sathe explained, and my mobility and quality of life have improved 100% as a result of the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Sathe for any foot-related issues.

Dr. Sathe' told me he could remove the bunion and straighten my big toe. He said I'd only be out of work for two days. The difference in my foot afterwards was barely noticeable. Two days absence turned into two weeks, then two months. Every day for the past seven years I've had more pain than I did before the surgery. I wouldn't recommend him to cut someone's toenails let alone cutting into their foot.

I cannot say enough about Dr Sathe. He is a very compassionate, professional and thorough physician. I felt comfortable with him starting from the initial appointment. He is easy to talk to, he listens to you and he genuinely cares. I have state insurance and often I come across doctors who don't seem to want to give you the time of day, not Dr Sathe, he treats you as if you had private insurance. I also would like to mention his office staff is just as wonderful!!
