Terrible neurosurgeon. Performed a surgery on my child that he was in over his head on, then went on vacation the day after surgery while my child suffered from severe complications. Crippled him for life. Don’t trust this man with your child.

He was wonderful to my husband and I gave us alll the information and answered all our questions. Best doctor hands down. In addition his office staff is wonderful to work with, Michelle goes out of her way to help with whatever needed.

We are very happy that we chose Dr. Sacco as our son’s neurosurgeon. He is very thorough, professional, very good at explaining and answering questions in ways that I understand and is the best at what he does. He did a phenomenal job on my son’s cranial vault.

We have had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Sacco! He operated on my son when he was just a baby and has since seen him for routine screenings for many years. He is always so kind and puts my son at ease every time! He makes sure to answer all our questions and explains the medical situation well. I highly recommend him!

Worth our 3 hour drive! Our wait wasn't long, and everyone was very friendly. They had a little play area, movies and snacks to help keep our kids entertained. Dr. Sacco listened to our concerns and explained everything to us so we could make the best decisions for our child. After our visit, they give us parking passes to pay for our parking. We are so glad we were referred to him.

Dr. Sacco has been the best provider we’ve seen here in Texas who is worth the hour drive. He’s so patient with explaining and answering our millions of questions. His staff is always on top of their game having you checked in so fast that your wait time is practically nothing. I do appreciate the time and kind services the practice as a whole provides.

My overall rating of Dr. Sacco is excellent. The office is very nice and gives a very warm atmosphere for the children. All staff was courteous and helpful. Dr. Sacco is an outstanding Neurosurgeon I would recommend his services to anyone. Dr. Sacco is very friendly and happy to answer the questions plus listened to every detail I could think of the recent issues my daughter had experienced (AVM). All my concerns were addressed. I felt very relieved and confident that we were in the right place.

Our first contact with Dr. Sacco was for a second opinion. He listened and looked at the MRI. The condition we were concerned about did not show up on the scans, but we all agreed an exploratory surgery was warranted based on clinical presentation. He did find the serious condition and made the surgical repair. After months of frustration with other doctors, we found the BEST pediatric neurosurgeon in Dallas! He is very personable with much experience.
