Ratings for Dr. Joya Sahu
It's already extremely difficuly to get an appointment with a dermatologist at the Jefferson hospital and when I had my appointment with Dr Sahu, I was really disappointed. First, there was the nurse who talked to me about why I was there. I told them my problem and then there was a doctor's assistant who took time to hear me out and THEN Dr Sahu came...I waited in the examination room for close to an hour and then she ALSO brought another doctor (in training?) for my private problem. How was I supposed to feel comfortable telling every detail I wanted to get across? The worst part of it all was, she didn't spend 10 minutes with me!
Dr Sahu gave my case to the resident who had limited care experience. She was brusk. She spent no time with oversight and had no experience with my care. She had no magnifiers or charts w body sketches. No drawings of my scars or descriptions. Got my diagnosis wrong because she let resident write report. Went to another doctor. What a difference when you get excellence in care. Dr. Sahu may be seeking financial gain rather than appropriate patient care. She missed a suspicious lesion which was photographed by another doctor. I would not trust her opinion or her skill level. I would never recommend her or her gallery of nameless residents for anything.
Dr Sahu is less than the best dermatologist I have visited. Although she correctly diagnosed my derm disorder, she prescribed medication that was not indicated for this disorder. The rationale she provided seemed to make complete sense but after completing three failed courses of the treatment, I decided to seek out a second opinion and I'm so glad I did. I suffered with my derm disorder for an entire year before I got a second opinion and was cured within a month of making the appointment--most likely due to the fact that I was prescribed the correct medications to treat the disorder. I don't trust Dr Sahu's medical knowledge or opinion. I think her treatment plans aren't in the best interest of her patients but more in the interest of her finanical benefit--after paying for countless medications and appointments, with not only failed attempts at resolving the probelem but continuous relapses.
