Ratings for Dr. Sassan Soltani
He is not very good. He jus looked at the test results and ultrasound result and colonoscopy. He is not relly trying to understand what the issue is unless test results show something. I endup having pane after 3 appointments with him and colonoscopy. Going to another doctor.
Dr. Soltani is helpful, caring, patient, kind, and very smart. I feel like we have developed a partnership with respect to treating my Crohn's disease. He understands my desire for a conservative approach [that is, I prefer treatments that provide long-term gains rather than short-term relief that might impede long-term progress]. He prescribes the minimum effective doses of my medications instead of overmedicating me as some of my previous G/I doctors have done. He has also done genetic tests to assess the risks to me of some medications that are commonly used. Over all, he is very careful.
After a colonoscopy, I experienced severe pain for days. Dr. Soltani said the pain could not have been caused by the procedure: "Pain from colonoscopy does not last this long." I finally consulted my internist, who diagnosed the problem right away: a flareup of diverticulitis (for which I have a history) caused by the procedure. He prescribed medication which rapidly brought relief. How could Dr. Soltani possibly have failed to recognize or even consider this ailment?
