Dr. Sahi is one of the most knowledgeable and caring doctors that I have ever seen.

I wanted to focus on my pulmonary concerns. The provider seemed to say that being overweight is the cause of all my pulmonary problems. I asked for a consult to help with my overweight. The provider declined any consult or help. The goals for improving my breathing seemed to be centered on weight alone and not medication and not a pulmonary plan. I explained that I am short of breath with walking but the provider said that unless I am light headed or pass out, I should push myself to the limits for exercise. This does not seem like a good plan. Likewise, she said to push myself to the point of chest pain and then I know that I have over-exercised.

Dr Sahi was outstanding in explaining details of results from the CT Scan. She was very concerned with my condition and very responsive to questions and prognosis of my pulmonary problems. I have total confidence in her abilities to define my diagnosis, read the scan results in easily understood terms.

THIS DR WAS NOT GOOD. I WAS SUPPOSE TO GET CALLED FROM SWEDISH MEDICAL TO WHEN I SHOULD PICK UP THE TEST FOR SLEEP APENA AND THEY DID NOT PUT THE ORDER IN. I AM NOW IN THE PROCESS OF CHANGING DOCTORS. THE OFFICE STAFF IN HER OFFICE WERE NOT HELPFUL AND I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT ANY OF THIS.

I needed follow-up testing and she set it up so that there was little wait time between seeing her and traveling to another clinic to get testing done Dr. Sahi explained what procedure she was going to do and talked me through it from start to finish.

I appreciate her expertise and way of explaining what is needed to improve situations. She is encouraging.

I arrived for this appointment stressed, angry, argumentative, and crying [...] I did not want to be at this appointment. I especially did not want to be at PacMed/Swedish for 5 hours with no break. I did not and still do not understand why the two tests had to be done immediately[...]

Dr. Sahi, spent less than five minutes with me, her Fellow conducted most of my exam. Dr. Sahi did not discuss my test results with me, dismissed my concerns, and suggested that I simply didn't know how to take my medication correctly.

My care provider is a bit gruff at times and doesn't smile much. While she is an excellent doctor, sometimes I'm apprehensive about seeing her for irritating her in some way.

Dr. Sahi is professional and thorough. She did seem a bit exasperated because I am not as consistent as I need to be when using my C-PAP machine. She seems to have little patience for my reasons, which I think she sees as excuses. This is not all bad; I need to be held accountable. But perhaps a little more sympathy with the fact that adjusting to the C-PAP is truly difficult for some people would be good.

Provider is defensive, anxious, and argumentative. She prefers lecturing to conversation. She would benefit from training in mutual goal setting.

The first time I ever met Dr. Sahi, about a year ago, I was very upset with her attitude. I felt she was rude, and condescending. I've seen her on two subsequent visits, and each time has been much better. This last visit about 2 weeks ago was excellent. It's like she is a totally different person. I have 100% faith in her professional abilities, and she seems like an excellent Dr. and I will continue to see her.
