The initial consultation with Dr. Sajja was very thorough from meeting with the assistant to Dr. Sajja to the schedule. Dr. Sajja was never rushed, most thorough, stopped frequently and allowed questions to be asked. The entire experience was great!

The appointment with the surgical scheduler was very accommodating. She was clear about times and dates and all insurance information. Also clear about fees due. The day of surgery was easy!
