Dr Saeian & his staff explained things in both medical & laymen terms. He & his staff listened to what my wife and daughter & I had to say and then explained why he chose to do what he was doing. He really listened to us and are concerns!

I felt as though I was the only important person in the area from the time Mary Anne met me at the door to the time I left the GI area. The PA, Kristin, was so thorough and listened carefully to all of my questions and answers. She explained everything in simple terms to that I could understand everything. Dr Saeian was the last person to walk into the room and he was amazing also. I know that he is terribly busy yet I never felt that he was in a hurry to get out of the room. I left feeling as though I wished that my other doctors, PA's and nurses were as kind and intelligent as Dr. Saeian and his staff. Kudos to everyone!!
