My Support Groups:
I have been diagnosed with Crohns since 1982, and just started seeing Dr. Saha about about three years ago, on the recommendation of my original gastroenterologist who has since retired. (He recommended her even though she has in a different practice all together.)

Dr. Saha is amazing -- always up on the latest research, and she listens well, and responds to my concerns. She gives you time in office visits, and I never feel as though they are rushed. She explains things in ordinary English, without talking down to you. I have had a lot of problems with finding the right medication, and she is extremely caring and persistent in helping me get it right. She is always willing to try new things, and lays out a step-by-step plan for a recommended approach. She has also got a very good sense of humor, which is important to me as an IBD patient. (Sometimes you just have to laugh to get through tough times.)

Her office staff is also wonderful. Her nurse, Gretchen, always returns phone calls within an hour or two, something I have never before experienced with any other doctor.

Dr Saha specializes in women with IBD, but I would recommend her to anyone with Crohns or ulcerative colitis, especially people who have had trouble getting their disease under control.

I have Dr. Saha as a doctor for Crohns. She did a great colonoscopy on me and very trusted. She knows my issues and replys to my blood tests etc. When I ask to do something she lets me do it.
