  • Biography


    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.

    Board certified in Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Dr. Saini specializes in the diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal and liver diseases. He is also heavily invested in the prevention of colon, esophageal and liver cancers. As an experienced gastroenterologist, he is expert in management of acid reflux, peptic ulcer disease, abdominal pain, bloating, gallstones, hepatitis, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, colon polyps, colon cancer, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

    Clinical Experience
    Dr. Saini has been actively involved in research. In private practice since 1997, he has performed thousands of GI procedures. He was one of the first GI physicians to offer Small Bowel Video Capsule Endoscopy (“pill camera”) to his patients in 2002.
    Education, Training and Experience
    Dr. Saini completed post-graduate fellowship training at Mount Sinai School of Medicine/Beth Israel Medical Center, New York City. In addition, he completed special training in therapeutic ERCP.
    Dr. Saini is on Active Hospital Staff at Hoag Memorial Hospital, based in Newport Beach, California since 1996, serving as the Department of Gastroenterology Chair from 2012-2014.
    Additionally, Dr. Saini is a member of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), Medical Director at the Pacific Endoscopy and Surgery Center in Fountain Valley; and active medical staff at Fountain Valley Regional Hospital and Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center; both in Fountain Valley, California.
