About Dr. Saini

As a Gastroenterologist, I strive to heal my patients back to their optimal GI health. I use both clinical acumen and state of the art technology to diagnose and treat GI disorders.

My initial post-graduate medical training was in England, followed by Gastroenterology Fellowship at the world-renowned Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City and the Beth Israel Medical Center. This is where I had the privilege of learning directly from world-renowned medical legends such as Dr. Hiromi Shinya (pioneered colonoscopy) and Dr. Jerome Siegel (pioneered therapeutic ERCP-endoscopic management of bile duct and pancreatic diseases).
Expect to get full attention during your office visit. You get clear explanation of your symptoms, what disease process it may imply; and what diagnostic tests or procedures you may need. I also encourage disease prevention with advice on proper nutrition and age-appropriate screening tests. Your well-being is my first priority.
I believe in engaging patients as partners to achieve best results. Your primary care physician is sure to get regular updates on your progress, as well as any of your other specialists.
Our office uses state-of-the-art technology for electronic health records, so your health information is available to Dr Saini 24/7 at the touch of a button.
