When bad reviews happen to good doctors

I had a completely different experience with Dr Saal. She listened, responded to my questions and was supportive and kind before and after my surgery. My surgical results were good. I cannot fathom these reviews and wonder whether several were written by the same patient with a grudge.

Rude, wrong, and lacking in compassion

I had the misfortune of seeing Dr. Saal about five years ago, when she worked at Harvard. She interrupted me as I tried to explain the issue, told me I shouldn't question those who knew better than I did (meaning herself), and sent me on my way with some pills. Things didn't get better, however, and a few days later, I had to go to ER and undergo a surgical operation for the very problem she claimed I didn't have. She is rude, imperious, unkind, and just a terrible, terrible doctor.

Misdiagnosis

Dr. Saal misdiagnosed me (a serious and life threatening diagnosis) Thank God for a second opinion. Avoid her.
