    Dr. Sachs is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain and answer questions. He is thorough in his approach, and his staff is extremely nice, helpful and courteous. It is a pleasure to visit his Cedar Knolls NJ office, and I recommend him to anyone needing a retina specialist.

    I have recommended the Doctor to 3 patients. I was impressed with the doctor and his staff from the first visit. Professional but still warm and caring. Sometimes professional can be cold and off putting. Not here.

    Upon returning from a business trip, I was experiencing "floaters" and following that, shadows. I called my regular eye doctor who immediately instructed me to see Dr. Sachs. Dr. Sachs saw me that same afternoon and following an exam, determined I had a detached retina and immediately scheduled me for surgery that evening. My eyesight has been saved thanks to the Doctor's quick action and complete and through explanation. A truly wonderful experience.

    Dr. Sachs saved my life. I came to see him on a 6 month basis until he found the "freckle" on my retina had turned into cancer. He made one phone call to Wills Eye in Philadelphia and I had an appointment with the top ocular oncologist in the country, Dr. Carol Shields. I am now a 6 year survivor thanks to him. He is an amazing doctor!
