Ratings for Dr. Claudia Saba
I was amazed to discover how difficult it was for me to find a rheumatologist near Leesburg that met my standards. One doctor, the lead physician in her group, came into the exam room wearing a filthy lab coat. I was so shocked that I was glad she didn’t have to treat me. Four years later when I needed to see a rheumatologist I was referred to the same doctor but refused and went on my own search. In reading the reviews about Dr. Saba I felt very positive about her and decided that I would tolerate an inferior staff to see her. I was delighted to discover from my first call to her office in Lansdowne that everyone on her staff was pleasant and very helpful. I told Dr. Saba how surprised I was considering the reviews and she admitted that there had been changes. I cannot say enough about Dr. Saba. She is kind, thorough and went beyond my reason for the appointment to do some blood work to give me some reassuring information. I am so grateful to have found her and wish I could encourage anyone in this area seeking a rheumatologist to try her. I can’t speak for her other offices, but the staff in Lansdowne is terrific!
I've been going to Dr. Saba for a few years now. I too have experienced awful staff. Very rude and eating at the front desk. Not very professional. But I'm glad I stuck with it because I like Dr. Saba. She really does care about your health. I did have a very bad experience with the gentleman that takes your blood work. He was very rude. He seemed like he was hacked off to be there and hurt me while taking blood. I never feel that but that day I did. When I got to my car I had blood running down my arm. I went right back to their office and had them clean my arm and I said I was never to see him again. He took whatever was wrong with him out on my arm. I also left a detailed message for Dr. Saba. She said they do not work for her but she was going to talk to his Supervisor. She did personally call me back. They are always late with getting me back to the room, but I think it's because like everyone else says, is she doesn't rush. I personally don't want her to rush with me, so I accept it.
I have been a patient of Dr Sabas for many years. The reviews of her office staff are no longer relevant and she has new people working in her office. She usually does run behind however it is because she never rushes me do I am sure she doesn’t rush other patients either. I m do glass the change in office staff occurred a while back cuz I use to dread having to call in for a problem with the insurance or problems getting a prescription refilled. I call now and it is usually taken care of the same day without any rudeness. I am glad the staff changed because I was very close to finding a new doctor because it was too stressful to deal with the staffs. Thank you to Dr Saba and the other doctors in the office for listening to your patients and changing the staff accordingly. I always told Dr Saba when I would see her if I had a problem with the staff and feel others should tell their doctors too. You won’t find a better doctor than Dr Saba
Saw Dr. Saba in Reston 3x in 2016. Staff is very unfriendly and uncaring/incompetent. X-ray done there was useless to ortho doctor. No report of my visits were given to my primary care. Blood work done in their office each visit; when they called with blood results, I was told I had inflammation and Dr. would talk to me at next appt.; next appt I just had more blood work. STILL WAITING on MRI results I had done 10 months ago!!! (Primary care gave me results.) They called a few days after MRI was done, left message for me to call back for results....when I called back, they said they had no MRI results for me. Dr. Saba was ok, but it was the staff that made me never wanting to go back!
I have been a patient of Dr. Saba in Lansdowne for several years. She is very knowledgeable and really cares about helping the patient. Concerning her office staff I think they are very efficient, helpful and know exactly what is going on. I'm very surprised with all the negative reviews as I have never encountered rude front office staff or rude nurses. I've never seen any "old" receptionist there, just the younger staff that has been here every day for several years. I do have to say that Dr. Saba always seems to be running behind seeing patients so I take that as she is not rushing patients out the door and cares about the quality of their care. I've just learned that when I go for my appointment, it is not going to be on time but it is worth it for the care I receive from Dr. Saba.
The old receptionist lady is incredibly mean and rude that I walked out with tears one time. I came back once or twice because I liked Dr. Saba, and hoping that the receptionist would have retired. Nope, still there. So thankful I am forced to look for a new rheumatologist since moving to a new location.
I HAD BEEN A PATIENT OF DR. SABA'S FOR 18 YEARS, AND HAD NO PROBLEM WITH HER. THE STAFF IS RUDE, MEAN, ALWAYS EATING AND TALKS ABOUT PATIENTS IN FRONT OF OTHER PATIENTS, VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!! MY LAST APPOINTMENT WITH HER, I WAS RUNNING 10 MINUTES LATE, AND I CALLED TO TELL THEM THAT. THIS WAS THE SECOND TIME IN 18 YEARS THAT I WAS LATE FOR AN APPOINTMENT WITH HER, BUT MANY TIMES I HAD WAITED OVER AN HOUR AFTER MY APPOINTMENT TIME TO SEE HER. AT THIS TIME, I WAS TOLD I WOULD HAVE TO RESCHEDULE BECAUSE DR. SABA COULD NOT SEE ME BECAUSE I WAS 10 MINUTES LATE...I SAID NO, I WILL NOT RESCHEDULE AND I WILL NEVER BE BACK!!!AND I WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN. I WISH DR. SABA KNEW HOW RUDE AND MEAN HER STAFF IS...
I see quite a few doctors these days and I have to say that Dr. Saba has hands down the worst office staff. The old woman who is the receptionist is the rudest person and a nightmare to deal with. She should have retired long ago. The concern for the patient's time and well being simply does not exist. This practice must pay their staff very little as that is the only explanation I can come up with as to why the caliber of the office staff is what it is.
