If you want to do yourself a favor stay away from this doctor & suffolk orthopedics in general. Firstly I'd like to inform anyone else that I first had my knee replaced by Dr. Saugy...less than a year later it will have to be replaced again due to the fact that the doctor did a horrible job (the replacement knee he used was not sized for me correctly). If this guy can claim to be a surgeon then the rose bush in my backyard can be a surgeon too. I am currently pursuing legal action against this doctor. Where Dr. Kalter is concerned first I was told he could help relieve my pain. Becuase he is not in my network of coverage I was going to have an EMG proceedure done by a doctor in my network. Suffolk Orthopedics insisted that I use him, so I allowed this idiot to stick me with needles so he could tell me "yeah you've got a problem with your knee"...how astute !! Now after being told that "I'd be taken care of"... because they are aware that Dr Saugy screwed up....this other schmuck had the audacity to send me a bill for this proceedure for almost $3,000 when if I had just used the doctors in my network I'd never gotten any bill. Needless to say if you deal with this group hold onto your wallet, they obviously don't know what they are doing, they are poorly coordinated, and don't waste your time calling the number listed above. This is their billing department, and if you call this number you'll never get a call back anyway. I plan on telling everyone I know that this is a practice that you should avoid...only if you want inferior health care should you use this group as an option.
