As a nurse practitioner I have been extremely impressed with Dr. Sawar's patience and kindness to me. I have a chronic long-standing condition that he has helped me so much with. I wish I could do something to pay him back for all he has helpprd me with. Wonderful man and super intelligent.
in Carlyle |
Dr. Sawar was very detailed in all of my symptoms. I have been living with severe body pain for many years and he understands my frustration. He was even able to see I had kidney problems which is something my primary doctor did not notice. His staff is very accommodating. Although they do not have a cancellation list, they did not mind me calling at all. Dr. Sawar has been a blessing to me in helping with my fibromyalgia.

Dr. Sawar has seen my mother in law and we have always had a pleasant experience with and his staff. He is one of the most thorough physicians I have ever met. He spent so much time explaining my mother in laws diagnosis and the treatment options I highly recommend everyone to go see him with any rheumatology or neurology issues.
in Carbondale IL |
Dr. Sawar actually takes the time and listens to my concerns. Another physician has referred to him as the holy grail of neurology the wait time to get in and see him is well worth it.
Highland, il |
3-5 weeks for a report when you are in pain, or need it to move on with treatment is to much time to wait. One and half hours past appointment time is to much. Spent 10 minutes with me, and kept trying to walk out the dorr when I still had questions.
