Ratings for Dr. K. Singh Sahni
Underwent gamma knife surgery under Dr. Sahni's direction at Johnson-Willis for an acoustic neuroma a couple of years ago. Most excruciatingly painful experience I have ever endured, and that includes 17 hours' labor. The procedure went well enough, but when they removed the frame that they had screwed into my head (literally), the pain quickly grew until I felt there was a ring of fire around my head. By that time the doctor was long gone and no one had provided for pain medication. The nurse ran around the hospital trying to find someone to authorize something, but it took a long time and I was in absolute agony. They did give me something and I fell asleep, then they pushed me out half conscious to my husband's car. That was a Thursday. No one checked on me until Monday. (Even a vet calls the next day, particularly when there's been trouble.) Follow up wasn't scheduled for over a month after that, and then they cancelled my appointment. Word to the wise: IF THEY ARE STILL USING THOSE HORRIBLE FRAMES, GO SOMEPLACE ELSE!!!!
I believe Dr. Sahni is a good surgeon, however, when the surgery fails his aftercare is very bad. He made it very clear he was no longer interested. The compassion I saw before the surgery was no longer there. This was not at all what I expected when I was worse after the surgery and he had been so optimistic that the surgery would help me.
Disappointed with my experience. Living with extreme debilitating facial pain. The office staff is cold and impersonal. I placed my trust and confidence in this Dr to help me with pain management solutions, and he had promised to fix me,and he has done neither. My life does have value & I pray I will find a Dr who I feel cares about saving my life & is committed to helping me with managing my facial pain or having a long term solution.
After being told by a local neurologist that I'd have to "learn to live with the pain" I was sent by a new neurologist to Dr. Sahni. After several months of agony, he did a gamma knife procedure and I've been pain free now for 2 years. Not only a good doctor, but a very nice person!!
Dr Sahni and his staff are off the chart! I could not have had better results from my surgery. I was out of the hospital in 2 days and was back at work in 2 weeks. If your within an air flight distance,I strongly recommend this is the doctor and staff you want operating on you.
I saw Dr. Sahni for three surgeries, the latter gamma knife. He patiently decompressed my acoustic neuroma and did a marvelous job. His partner,Dr. Wayne Shaia, also deserves kudos. While an excellent surgeon, I have found his aftercare to be lacking. I have not been pleased nor have I felt heard, which I very much felt during surgery. I am now dealing with TN and feel hopeless after my last appointment, and was additionally treated poorly.
