Caring, compassionate and thoughtful. He is patient, takes his time to explain problems and treatments. I’ve consulted with many doctors for my lymphoma, and I am very happy to have met Dr. Sawas.

The doctor and staff are rude and cold; the front desk is unprofessional, it is VERY difficult to reach them. The staff talks badly about Columbia's other locations, in hopes you will get all of your treatment at their Midtown office. The front desk complains about patients in front of anyone in their waiting room. They do not deserve the one star given. Dr. Sawas will explain everything to you IF you know what questions to ask.
