What People Say About Dr. Amar Sawar, MD

Dr. Sawar is the best Neurologist/Rumatologist in this area. He is a very personable doctor who sincerely cares about his clients. I was amazed at how well he listened and the time he spends with his patients. It is also obvious that he has more knowledge about his field than the majority of other physicians. The combination of his extensive knowledge, willingness to listen, and determination to keep looking until true answers and soultions are found make him the best doctor you will ever meet.

I believe Dr Sawar is very knowledgeable, however, he failed to get my RA under control and dealing with his office staff is horrible. Communication is frustrating. If you call with a problem you may not hear back for a couple of days and you may have to call back multiple times. It was very concern when one one such occasion I called with a problem and after 2 days a member of his taff called and told me to stop taking a medication that I was not even on!!!!! I have other concerning incidents.

I've been seeing Dr. Sawar for only a short time and I could not have thanked my PCP for sending me there enough. He is so smart and just a short amount of time has helped me get my Parkinson Disease under control.

Dr Sawar has to be one of the most efficient and caring doctors that I have ever been to. I went to my PCP with unbearable foot pain, and was referred to Dr. Sawar. I described the pain to him and he told me exactly what it was. He was right on target, this man is genius.

I found Dr Sawar to be very helpful and professional. I've been sick off and on for years without any relief. I've been to several physicians to no avail. This doctor jumped right into my illness with all the confidence in the world. By the time I left the office I felt like there might be light at the end of the tunnel. Last but not least his staff is top notch. They're all there to help, and jump in with no second thought! Thank you all for giving me hope. Sincerely, Teresa Anne Chadwell

I suffer from a severe autoimmune disease, so my medication is very important. Dr. Sawar and his office staff do not send my prescriptions or provide necessary forms to my pharmacy; therefore, I do not receive my medication. It's been a week and a half since my appointment, and I still haven't received my medication! HORRIBLE WAY TO TREAT THE ILL!!!
