Verified Patient Reviews
The long wait was worth it. All the staff and Dr. We’re so nice and I left with a feeling of hope for my Husband.
She wants to push meds and send you to outpatient therapy where you would need to take off work for.
Everyone there was friendly and helpful
Dr. Sajan was great! Very professional and kind as well as her nurse/ assistant
Very well-rounded. I believe that the practitioners recommendations and medication adjustments were well-founded and productive. Very good visit happy with the services.
Went to Dr. Sajan on the advice of my Humana Nurse today. Am almost out of ativan and needed a refill. Instead was told to check in to Windmoor of Clearwater and go through withdrawls.She only saw me once before for a couple of minutes and without seeing me at all today. I have been this route several times and treating my GAD in that type of facility and had anxiety so bad they put me back on clonazepam and then ativan. Won't go through it again. Will find a sympathetic psychiatrist that will leave my meds alone.
Dr. Sajan and her staff were great. Wait time was a little long, but worth it. Great bedside manner
I was feeling terrible the time of my appointment. Had barely able to get out of bed. She set up a new appointment for me. I am so grateful for her compassion.
Very professional, the office was inviting, the staff and doctor were helpful and pleasant. The wait time was not bad, I am a new patient, I was in and out with in an hour. I feel negative reviews may come from people who just want a prescription and the doctor isn't going to fill a prescription for someone who abuses drugs, she has morals and I like that. The whole experience was good, I didn't feel judged and I was happy I went.
Doctor met with me for 5 min after waiting over and hour and half and wants to change my meds. The PA who spoke to me was not only "better than me" but she was to good to even read the documents I brought in for her rather she asked the same questions over and over. This is nothing but a puppy mill of therapist. They dont care if your dead or alive as long as they get thier money. How do you just change peoples meds without even talking to them or reviewing thier past medical history right in front of them.
It was my first visit having given up on Directions. Been seeing the same doctor there for about three years and all she did was tinker with my meds. Her approach to my illness got me back in life but I don't want to remain on all the meds I am on and still wind up in the ER every few weeks. She was treating the symptoms but not the Illness. I am really hoping that will change now.
The Doctor and her clinical staff were absolutely fabulous. They were friendly and warm and made me feel respected and cared for. I'm so happy that I found them!! They were able to assist me in making a smooth, stress free transition from PA to Florida.
Very professional. They listened to me and I feel like they will help.
They doctor was unprofessional ther service was horrible and the technician was disrespectful. I needed help with a simple issue that i discussed with the woman at the front desk over the phone before i went in and was assured that the doctor would be able to resolve it for me only for her to spend, literaly, 3 minutes with me and have nothing accomplished. I am going to attempt to get my money back. worst doctors visit I ever had
She seems pleasant.
I felt like I should have come in and took a number. It was like a conveyor belt of people going in and out. I'm not sure why there are appointments at all because its basically first come first serve. I saw the actual doctor for a max of 5 min and felt uncomfortable and rushed.
The receptionist forgot to check me in so I had to wait a long time.
All the support staff are great. Only talked to the actual Dr for only a few minutes. If the actual Dr took just took the time to get to know her new patients I would improve rating greatly.
By far, the biggest mistake I have ever made in my adult life was to see this doctor. When a psychiatrist has both a Medspa clinic and a psychiatry clinic out of the same office, that should be a warning to RUN, not walk away. While spending less than 10 minutes with a nurse practitioner who then called in Dr. Sajan who, in less than 5 minutes: 1. Attempted to coerce me to sign a release to speak with my wife, who was not present. I was told by Dr. Sajan that failure to sign the release would be cause for her force me into a hospital. 2. Would not prescribe any medication outside of me being in a hospital where she had privileges to treat. 3. Finally, after walking out on this "circus", I was later accosted by the police at my home because of her "intervention". I then spent a lovely night in Gracepoint because the police would not entertain the idea that the doctor was wrong. The doctor apparently has one specialty for people who are depressed as I was: transference. My depression has now converted to rage at what has happened to me during this experience. I cannot speak to the long wait others have complained about in this set of reviews. I can say that no one in my ability to warn will EVER be referred to this doctor. I would encourage ZocDoc to evaluate the reviews here and consider whether a doctor of this caliber should continue to be allowed to participate in their program.
It was a good experience
The wait time is long. I work and taking time from work to see a doctor is hard. I usually use my lunch hour, but waiting an 1.5 to be seen is a lot of waiting.
I initially booked a 3:30 appointment then the doctors office called and moved my appointment to 2:30 saying they dont accept 3:30 appointments. I got there 5 minutes before my appointment and didnt get called in to see the doctor until 3:45. My 3:30 appointment would have still worked. I was really disappointed that as a new patient I had to wait over an hour.
The wait was more than ridiculous. Can you believe I was there from start to finish for almost three hours? I'd planned to go back to work after my appointment (which all together was supposed to be 90 minutes according to the receptionist I spoke to on the phone before the appointment.) I spent about 90% of my time waiting, 5% of the time speaking to an assistant, 1% seeing the actual doctor, and the last 4% was spent on waiting to sign out and leave. Trust me. I did the actual math based on time. It's not like I had anything else to do for three hours. The doctor only spoke with you for about five minutes, gave a quick review and diagnosis and pushed you out the door with a prescription which is not what I wanted. I expected to speak to someone in detail with care. It's a medical office for people with mental illness after all. I immediately cancelled my follow up appointment.
Too much red tape to go through
It was "eh" I basically paid to sit around and wait. Talk for 5 mins wait some more and then had a 3 min consult.
I thought the office was really small and tightly cramped for the amount of patients inside and the service window was too close to the door. DR. Sanjay seemed to be nice, but quite robotic. The assistant who saw me first was way better.
I won't be going back to this doctor. The wait was literally two hours and I signed in a few minutes before my appointment time. Listening to other people in the waiting room complain about the waiting time, 3 of us soon realized that we were all booked for the same 2:30 pm appointment. Do I believe shes' the absolute worst? No, but I didn't feel comfortable talking to her and her vibe/intentions to me seems more finance driven then care driven. Bottom line, when meeting a doctor, you want to feel some sort of connection....some type of genuine care from them and I just didn't get that feeling from her.
Was not told when I filled out all the forms online to take with me so I had to sit there and fill them all out again. They are in two groups and it took me a good hour to do them. The doctor visit was not long, and she started on helping me.
very knowledgeable. very polite
Don't expect you will be meeting with Dr Sajan. You get her nurse practitioner for most of the appointment and the the Dr comes in for 3 minutes and leaves!!! Also, be forewarned that if she makes you urine test to get treatment it could run you SEVERAL HUNDRED as it did me with United health care insurance! I do not abuse any drugs or such and to have to be urine tested to get treatment for anxiety made me feel ashamed. This is only HER policy and no other office I called requires this. They scoffed at the very idea. I am disgusted this happened to me and am willing to wait 4 months to get in to a Dr without sooooo many bad reviews! I read the reviews on Dr Sajan and thought I would give her a chance anyways. I should have trusted them.
I'm very very disappointed and upset. After driving from Tampa to Clearwater. My insurance company states that Dr. Sajans ofc doesn't complete any paperwork for Short-Term disability claims ever. So if this is what you need don't use this ofc.
My visits have been bad. First, I have to wait over an hour after my scheduled appointment. They told me I would be able to fill out my short term disability forms with them over the phone but when I got there, I was told a different story. I've called them 5 times before and was placed on a hold, then they hung up on me. They never called me back. I had to call them back.
As a child, I was diagnosed with severe ADHD. I did not respond to medicine so I spent many hours and years in therapy learning behavioural & coping techniques to manage my symptoms. Years ago, As an Adult, the ADD came back. I spent three weeks getting diagnosed with family histories, brain scans, a full medical work up and an extensive review of all of the doctors and medicine I had taken in the previous 15 years. The diagnosis was Adult ADHD and appropriate medicine was prescribed. I stayed on that treatment for a short period, then I went back to behavioural modification. That was years ago and I thought I would never have the symptoms return, But they did. and I came in today looking for help. I know my symptoms are back and they are severe.The doctor barely met with me and told me I was severely depressed. I said I was depressed because my AdHD symptoms were back. She said I was depressed and that was causing my ADD symptoms...and I said they were not. She gave me medicine for people who are severely depressed. I threw them away and cancelled my follow up visit.
It was not as I expected. I expected to have a therapy session with Dr Sajan. Instead I was told that the therapy sessions are done by another individual in the office who is not in my insurance network.. I felt like this was a waist of time. The wait time was longer than the actual visit with the practitioner.
awful from top to bottom. two appointments and no joke, a 90 minute wait each time. the doctor IGNORED my symptoms and what i was telling her and basically suggested i would need to commit myself. (i have anxiety, that's all.) forget it. this is a patient mill and the doctor is trying to sell her own agenda, and doesn't care about you one bit.
It was fantastic. She adressed all our problems and the staff was superb.
Overall a positive experience. The wait was a little long.
Only a long wait because it was my first time being there. Dr. Sajan and her PA were both very nice, welcoming and gave rme options. So far so good.
I had met Dr. Sajan the beginning of May. out of four visits I saw her once very briefly on my initial visit, and did not see her again until the fourth visit, which was my last! I was under a physician assistant's care more visits than not. on the third visit it was recommended to adjust medication while in their hospital. On the fourth visit Dr. Sajan insisted that I be hospitalized, criticized my decision in not wanting to go to the hospital, was extremely agitated and furious, raising her voice to me because I was hesitant in this plan of care, and followed this by criticizing my immediate family and their well-being in seeking and supporting my health concerns. I have been with other psychiatrists in the past years and never once did I feel so intimidated, pressured, and scared to death leaving a doctors office. I would not recommend her due to to her unquestionable and unethical voiced comments and poor bedside manner, along with her lack of compassion. I would even go as far as saying I'd greatly never return and for visits were three visits too many!!. she was either very much out line in the way I was treated as a psychiatry patient, or I am definitely sicker having see her then I was prior.
Actual what i was looking for
I think on a professional level she is amazing, however, I feel like since my case wasn't serious enough, her nurse practitioners were the ones I was with the majority of the time. Also even after filling out my information on here, I was still having to fill out basic to more specific paper work at there office. So I wouldn't recommend spending time an effort filling out a form on ZocDoc for them. The only way you can get it done ahead of the appointment day is to go on their specific website and print out their forms through that means. Otherwise, was a good experienced visit.
She is very rude. I waited for 6 HOURS. and I was not happy about the service. I will never go there again.
I think she could have asked me more questions - but perhaps that comes on the 2nd visit?
Dr. Sajan's staff was very kind. Dr. Sajan, on the other hand, was rude and made me feel the most uncomfortable I have ever felt when seeing a doctor. I walked in there seeking help for an anxiety problem and left feeling like I had just been interrogated. She made me feel like I was a drug addict, questioning everything about my history acting as if I was jumping around from doctor to doctor to get prescription meds. All she had to do was do a prescription history request to see that all of my prescriptions were more than spaced out timing wise and were properly taken and never abused. If I could give this doctor 0 stars, I would.
Dr Sajan was very rude! I usually don't take the time to write a review good or bad but found it necessary in this case. As I spoke with her she cut me off when I was speaking & rolled her eyes. She was very judgmental and the meeting with her was very uncomfortable. Also while I waited in their "triage " I heard the staff talking amongst themselves & on the phone @ patients using their names & meds they take. Her office requires you to take urinalysis "drug test " . They aren't a pain clinic or rehab. I have never been treated as badly as they were. I have never been to a psychiatrist feeling worse than when I went in. While in their "triage " another first time patient asked me if it was always like this. She was also waiting for two hours & treated poorly. Do your research & good luck.
I liked the Dr. very much and was seen almost immediately to fill out paperwork. I am, however, perplexed as to how they found out I was on a medication that I did not report. I was told that suboxen is totally confidential and I would like to know how that information was obtained. I wasn't trying to be secretive, it just blew me away that someone gave out confidential information that was not their right. I did not sign a release of information and am quite angry, not because I want to hide anything, but because it makes me nervous that anyone can find out my personal mental health issues. I have a feeling it was K-Mart and I intend to look into my rights for them giving that information without my permission. It is hard enough to battle mental illness without having to worry that anyone has privy to that information.
All of the staff and Dr. Sajan were very kind and professional and made me feel comfortable through my entire appointment. I would highly recommend Dr. Sajan.
I live in Sarasota and have Florida Blue Insurance. I wanted to talk to the dr. about one issue and possibly a couple of lesser problems. I had map quest directions and was worried from the minute I entered St. Petersburg that I was going to have difficulty. I had to pull over twice for directions and call the office and talk to a sweet front office girl named Stacy who guided me in on the phone. The office lobby felt like a busy Dental Office Lobby. It didn't give me a warm feeling. I filled out a six page form while waiting. I was called to the dr.s office to sit in front of a young girl seaming to be in her mid twenties. She told me judging from what was on my paperwork I filled out She the assistant recommended a particular sleep aid. I didn't really know a mid nurse could recommend medication, but she did. Then the doctor came in and introduced herself and agreed with her assistant with the diagnosis she gave and left the room. I then went to the front counter and they told me to come back in Two weeks. I then took over an hour to drive out of Clearwater to St.Pete and find I 75 to get back to Sarasota. The entire nightmare took six and a half hours. The medication when taken stops up my sinuses and I have to use Flonase to breath and sleep. It also stays in your system for much to long for me. I would rather pay a well recommende older psychiatrist in Sarasota in the future. I personally have been mis diagnosed by a nurse practitioner in the past on afoot ailment. So I do not care for that system of medicine and never would have dreamed this psychiatrist would operate in this manner. If I knew this I would have continued looking for another Dr. I still can say I have never spoken to a psychiatrist. I met one.
Dr. Sajan is amazing as well as her physican assistant and office staff. I had a great experience and would recommend her to anybody. I went in feeling hopeless and left with a proper diagnosis and medication that is already helping me after two days.
Didn't get the medication that I came for and was put on two others
Arrived 20 minutes early, had my paper work already filled out and signed. Other details resolved. Four people waiting in waiting room. They were seen quickly, I was called in about 1 hour wait. Assistant Rebecca very helpful,thorough,pleasant,knowlegeable. Dr Sinar also. Everything I expected.
Too short. Doesn't let u talk. Crap
It was ok, I'm used to seeing my drs no later than 5 minutes after my appt time. Her office books too many ppl. To stay on time.
Office crew worked to get all paperwork done asap and insurance copays explained clearly and promptly; all were courteous. Visit on task and efficient.
Her 3-star rating is BEYOND generous, I would give her zero if I could. I found her to be rude, uninviting, short (in temperament), her bedside manner is non-existent. It was my first visit and she spent maybe 10 minutes with me, which for a psychiatric evaluation/treatment is ridiculous, most Psychiatrists spend a good hour with you on the first visit, not to mention my appointment was for 11:30am and I wasn't seen until 3pm.
Seemingly nice very genuine at first and then started upping my doses changing from one narcotic to another.. wanting to push stronger ssri medication left "choice" up to me for whom i wanted to be in charge of the meds my primary of her.. and when i said my primary she flipped her lid about how that would be a total inconvenience to her to have to call my primary to adjust meds accordingly .. if medical issues were not all linked especially mental health why would i not want my doctors being forced to work together... MONEY >> MONEY >> HUNGRY >> PILL >> PUSHER
The Dr. was not friendly. Not personable at all. Felt uneasy speaking with her. I felt like she took my concerns very lightly. I could never recommend anyone to see her. Sorry, but it was a bad experience and have never been back since.
I have never had such an awful experience with a doctor in my entire life. My appointment was scheduled for 12:30 and I wasn't seen until 1:35!! Then she had the audacity to tell me I should have said something when 30 minutes prior I had told the nurse I needed to get back to work. Then she refused to listen to me when I was explaining things to her. It was literally like talking to a computer. Worst bedside manner ever. I literally left the office in tears. Makes me want to fly out of state to go back to my doctor I had to leave behind when I moved.
She was nice But way overbooked .I waited over 3 hours not only that But I showed up for my appointment and was told I had to come back another day. she was overbooked. I come back the next day to a wait!! 3hours plus in a over crouded waiting room unreal!!!
