Ratings for Dr. Saad A. Saad
My son had surgery in 2010 with Dr. Saad at Jersey Shore Medical Center. He had pectus excavatum. Dr. Saad was recommended by our pediatric office. Also, I read some wonderful comments on his surgeries and I felt comfortable with having him be my son's surgeon. Both surgeries were done (one to take the defective parts out and the other to take the bar out). It seemed like my son was on the mend and then, part of his chest caved in. So, we visited Dr. Saad and he said that it was ok (ridiculous to think we would be ok with that). We decided to go see another surgeon. My son saw 2 other surgeons, one from RWJ and the other from CHOP. Both doctors felt that the surgeon, Dr. Saad who performed my son's procedure was inexperienced and didn't use the correct method to fix my son's chest. Now, my son has nerve damage, no rib cage and a chest sunken in on one side. I think Dr. Saad should retire and let another surgeon do the procedure correctly. As far as my son, we are trying to figure out if another surgery would be wise to fix Dr. Saad's crappy work. I do not recommend Dr. Saad. Yes, he is a nice man but he is lacking certain knowledge .
Dr. Saad left something inside my body after an appendectomy and it caused a major infection resulting in another unsuccessful surgery by Dr. Saad. Found a new doctor at CHOP who may have saved my life but I spent 6 months in and out of hospitals. So no, I would not recommend. Also, he performed an incision on my abdomen without anesthesia.
So disappointed with Dr. Saad. He assured us surgery to remove a neavis subaceous on my daughters head was routine procedure. Incision was twice the size he told us and spent minimal time explaining the procedure with us. After surgery hair is falling out and bald spots forming. He has no answers. Keeps saying "I don't know why this is" and basically rushing us out of his office to find a dermatologist to help us. Says balding is not from surgery, but it is only in spots where he operated? Feel like he butchered my daughters head. Would definitely NOT recommend Dr. Saad to anyone
My daughter required emergency surgery. I thank goodness she was appointed Dr. Saad. He made her feel comfortable, was extremely knowledgeable, and very experienced.He even hugged me when it was all over. I am thankful my daughter was in his hands.
All I can say is thank goodness that I was not in an emergency situation. It has been well over a month and still no call back from Dr. Grace, the office manager is one of the rudest people I've ever spoken to. Had the audacity to tell me that Dr. Saad has dedicated his life to taking care of children and spends most nights not sleeping because he's so busy operating. All I can say to that is nobody held a gun to his head to make him be a Dr.. I'm sure he made that conscious decision on his own and secondly....I'd hate to be the patient scheduled for surgery first thing in the morning if he's up all night operating. Dr. Saad should stop being so greedy and take on a partner or two. Maybe he'd actually call people back.
