Ratings for Dr. Vivek S. Sahgal
I am really unhappy now that Dr Sahgal has left Lansing he was a wonderful doctor and took care of me and my family. We all have complicated medical problems which he handled with ease. Other doctors in this area do not have that expertize. I love him and miss him.
Dr. Sahgal treated my wife Beth for advanced Lyme when he was practicing in Lansing, KS. He probably saved her life after she had suffered mystery symptoms, facial paralysis, pain, mental health issues and untold frustration. Beth had been run all over Kansas City to numerous specialists seeking answers. Dr. Sahgal worked with our insurance and was able to keep her on IV antibiotics for almost a year. My only complaint is that he left our area and is too far away for my wife to see him for care.
I had been wrestling with chills fevers and weight loss that no one in my PCP group identified Dr Sahgal checked me out and said he suspected colon cancer. It was unfortunate but true he found the answer in less than 24 hours. I am grateful for his expertise
I have seen a few physicians in my life, Dr Sahgal came into my life at a particularly critical time, I was admitted to St John's Hospital in shock and kidney failure. He went over all my problems at length gave me options including staying at same hospital or transferring to KUMC. His kindness won my family over and we stayed he single handedly did the job that it takes many specialists to do. I spent a brief period for recovery in a skilled facility . I now go and see him for everything.
My husband was referred to this doctor due to having heard good things about him. He was very late. He breifly discussed the medical condition that brought him there. He stated "I will fix this, you can trust me". Later he wanted imaging completed. My husband went to get it done but it was too expensive, at that point he said to do labs. If the labs were bad he would need to expensive imaging. Labs were perfect! what next.... he said lets just wait and see what happens. Seriously! He has been waiting already which is why he went to that doctor. In the end we will be finding a new doctor. Someone that cares more about his patients.
Staff ineffective with patient care. Dr never available for appointments. At least a 2hr wait or more. Not helpful answering questions due to treating family of patient like morons. Apparently not as knowledgable as he thinks because he does not follow thru with all patient care to insure infections are completely taken care of.
I am alive today due to Dr Sahgal's exceptional knowledge and a staff that pays attention to details. He is not always on time, but I suspect that is because he deals with emergencies first, and I for one am grateful as it has saved my life on two occasions.
