SHC Patient, Jun 2016

We can't say enough about how great Dr. Sen is. We are so thankful you opened your wound care department.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

very friendly guy, showed lots of concern and made sure to answer all of my questions

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I've seen 2 other doctors in the wound clinic and I hated both. One had no idea what an ileostomy was and why my butt was sewn shut. The other had no concern when I explained that I was bleeding from my wound. Dr. Sen is the ONLY doctor I will see there.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

I can't think of a situation in which I would recommend a doctor to anyone. But if I were to I would recommend Dr. Sen. He is marvelous.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

All good.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I had an outstandingly positive experience with Dr. Sen. Very grateful for his care!

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Excellent.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Sen is passionate for his work and I think he really cares. He is committed and has so far gone to bat for me to make sure I get the care needed.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

He seemed the kindest & most concerned. He seemed to take me seriously.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Does not listen to patient enough. Needs to take notes. Asking the same questions every time not remembering or listening to answers.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Only issue with Dr. Sen has been his very limited availability (limited # of open appointment times).

SHC Patient, May 2014

I appreciated his thoroughness in my exam and in answering all my questions. He gave me his undivided attention and concern.
