Dr. Sathyendra has an excellent bedside manner. He explains things in simple terms that I can understand. I am also alarger woman in need of a hip replacement and this doctor acknowledges the fact that I am overweight but he mentions it without insulting me becausewe are all obviously aware of my weight issue. I am very appreciative of that because prior to Dr. S. I only found surgeons in my plan that seemed to get off on insulting me. Even if I were to lose the weight, Dr. S. is the only one I would allow to perform my surgery. For the person that criticized the doc or office regarding the insurance, it is actually the patients responsibility to know tmwhat their insurance covers, it is NOT the responsibility of the doctor. This team is wonderful and very very kind! ??? Thank you all!!!
