I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Dr. Saatman and her team, Michael and Nicole for making the most terrifying experience in my life a great one. I have never had a medical concern in my life and when I herniated my L5/S1 and was at a level 10 pain I thought life was over. I am an overly analytic person and have to ask a ton of questions to know all possible outcomes to make a decision. I am most certain that I drive Dr. Saatman and everyone else beyond crazy asking endless questions (I come in with printed lists) but they never make me feel bad or try to rush me out of the office before I am comfortable. Dr. Saatman is a brilliant surgery with amazing hands. She commands your presence when entering the room and knows exactly how to frame questions so she is able to get the proper responses from you to diagnosis and treat you. She performed a lumbar micro-discectomy on my L5/S1 in February of 2016 . They were wonderful in prepping me at the hospital and the recovery has been terrific. I am so grateful to see a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel and can’t wait to dive back in to the life I love. This is the best medical team I have ever dealt with in my life for myself or others and could not imagine being treated by anyone else.
