Dr. Saeian is one of the best Doctors I have been see by. Please do everything you do so that he never leaves your hospital. He is very caring and I trust him very much. Thank you for hiring him.
This was an in-person visit.He is a very kind doctor. Love him.
I've always gotten exceptional care from Dr. Saean and staff.
Dr. Saeian is extremely well informed and shared the necessary information in a caring compassionate way. He sincerely cares for his patience. He took time to address all issues and concerns. I have a serious hearing impairment and he was very aware of that and made a real effort to make sure I was able to understand him. He is fantastic. I only wish my other specialists were as wonderful.
My provider, and the staff with whom I interacted, have consistently demonstrated knowledge, professionalism and concern for my well being. Thank you.
