I never felt more humiliated or dehumanized in a doctor’s appointment. This man has no bedside manner, spoke to me like I was a child, and condemned my weight over and over.
Let me say this about this doctor. He is very knowledgeable. He was very aggressive in finding out what my problem was. It wasn't an outcome that I wanted. He recommended two other doctors that are very knowledgeable and caring, for that I am indebted to him. He is a straight forward and no nonsense type of doctor. He took the time to explain things to me in our visits. He was the type of doctor that I needed at the time. Thank you Dr. Sagetelian.
Always very professional and friendly. Explains everything in detail.
Dr Sagatelian is a great doctor. He and his staff are professional and friendly.
Was referred to dr. Sagatellian by my rheumatologist. Had endoscopy and colonoscopy performed. Dr sagatellian always seemed to be in a rush. Bedside manner was lacking much to be desired. Told me there was nothing wrong with me but in the lab reports he noted differently. Now I’m facing cancer that possibly has spread to my pancreas, spleen, and kidneys. Too bad he wasn’t more attentive.
Dr. Sagatelia seems to be a good Doctor but the way they do things is so unethical mabey even illegal. When I went to see him the first time they have you sign. Bunch of papers that say if this happens or that happens it is not our fault. What they are mostly refering to is its not there fault if your insurance dont pay. Well I dont pretend to know how a Doctor interacts with a health care provider geting authorization for any prosedure so ghey tell me my out of pocket like $87 that is my co pay over three providers. I have no deductable and my insurance covers a colonoscopy with no co pay if you are over 50 you just have to pay 5% but they knew all along that it is only covered if it is outpatient not at the surgery center that he uses that he is part owner of they call that ambulatory surgery and it has a $500 co pay thas why they dont tell you because if tjey haf i would have went some place else. Dr Sagatlian had on my first visit ordered labs a lot more that I had already had done by my family Dr. I did not know what for but he did not get aproval and that claim was denied because he checked a box that said he was treating me for obesity. Well i am not obeste. I at that time was 10lb over wheight for my height come to find put hr checkef a bunch of boxes on the form saying he was treating me for like i told him i had lost some weight because i had cut out sugar and was eating healther so he put unexplained weight loss. My health care provider dont cover obesity so they refused to pay labs he ordered that cost $1200 I have ask them several times to amend the form but it has been a year and still not changed.
I have been seeing Dr.Sagatelian since 1999 and he has always been a physician who cares 120 % for his patients. Straight up no run around tells you whats wrong or right about your condition and expects you to do what he tells you to help you to help make yourself well. Very Professional, Caring, Gentel, Knowledgable, Doesn't talk "At You" He "Talks With You" about any Concerns/Question you may have. I trust him completely.
good Dr but ther billing and the way they do things explaing ahead of time what it will cost you and what you insurance will pay is noexistant. They hide the fact that most healh care plans cover most of a colonoscopy if you are over 50 and it is done outpatient but not at a ambulatory sutgery center like his that he is part owner of.
Great doctor, very thorough and friendly.
Over the years I have the opportunity (Maybe that’s not the right word) to have endoscopy and colonoscopies performed by quite a few doctors and without a doubt Dr. Sagetalian has been the best.
I've seen Dr John Litchfield, he is the best.
Wonderful doctor, compasionate, takes all the time to help and listen, very knowlegeble also kind, understanding , compasionate, very capable, an old fashioned style doctor that takes his commitements to patients very seriously. I was married to a excelent doctor, and Dr. Sagatelian is first rate. I am lucky I was his patient.
The first appointment I went to, he rushed through and didn't seem to want to hear what I was actually experiencing. He diagnosed me without running any tests and prescribed medication to me before actually knowing what was wrong. Second apt I took my dad with and all he wanted to do was chat with my dad STILL instead of suggesting tests or anything else to solve the problem. The only thing I liked was the colonoscopy that was conducted by his coworker. I didn't even see Dr the day of procedure
I DO NOT RECOMMEND HIM! Rushed through my appointment and kept looking at his phone the whole time! When I scheduled it was for one of the other docs that I have heard great things about. But I get there and they tell me I was scheduled with Dr Sagatelian. I was very unhappy but saw him anyway. He did not put me at ease at all. Just wants to give me more meds. I will not be going back to him ever!
I went to him because the other GI docs in town could not help me. He diagnosed my condition right away and am I glad! He is very professional and caring. Great staff. Everyone made me feel comfortable. The colonoscopy was a breeze. I liked him so much I sent my whole family to him.
Dr. Sagatelian has been my GI doc for a while. He's efficient, kind, knowledgeable, understanding, thorough, has a great bedside manner, competent and efficient staff and I have been very blessed to have him as my doctor. Will continue to go, even though I hate the procedure; Dr. Sagatelian doesn't make it worse by doing it. Totally awesome Dr. and staff.
I do not think he was honest with me. His treatment for Hep C was the worst experience of my life. I have since been cured by another doctor.
Great doctor!!! Overall very professional and caring would definitely recommend.
Does not communicate with or examine patients referred to him. AMAZING!!
Man saved my life back in 2002. I was throwing up blood, with massive esophageal bleeding after a lifetime of heavy drinking. God worked through this man's hands. I am still here and in great shape today. Hint...when he tells you to quit drinking, listen to him. He knows his stuff.
