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.

Dr.Sacco was wonderful with my daughter. He treated her respectfully and answered all of our questions. Her surgery went well and she received excellent care from Dr. Sacco and his staff while recovering in the PICU. He is extremely skilled and highly respected by his peers. I would trust my child with him again.

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.

Dr Sacco was very patient and kind with all of our questions. Learning your 10 year old son has a tumor that needs to be removed is a scary thing, and he made us feel very comfortable with everything! He also was very patient with my son who likes to talk and ask questions!!

Dr. Sacco is great. My daughter has many medical issues and sees multiple specialists. I like that Dr Sacco doesn't rush into surgery and takes time to explain the pros and cons of all options.

We saw Dr. Sacco for my daughter's back following a sport's injury. He explained everything to the both of us, took the time to discuss options and answer all of our questions. He provided practical advice and was a calming influence. This is the way that medicine is supposed to be practiced. Great bedside manner. Thank you!

We were really impressed with the level of care my daughter received with Dr. Sacco. Appointments were made quickly and every part of the visit and treatment was explained throughly. My daughter really appreciated Dr. Sacco talking to her instead of over her. He really took the time to listen to her concerns and asked her questions about her symptoms. I really appreciated not being rushed. You can tell they really care about their patients in this office! Highly recommend!

I highly recommend Dr. Sacco and Medical City Children's Hospital. My 15 yr old needed brain surgery to correct a birth defect & Dr. Sacco took the time to thoroughly explain everything to us. He was patient, calm & thorough. The day before the surgery, the nurses at Medical City walked us through the entire procedure so that we would know what to expect and be as comfortable as possible with the surgery. The surgery & recovery went smoothly. Dr. Sacco and his staff were amazing.

Dr. Sacco & staff have been AMAZING! Dr. Sacco’s education, experience, knowledge and work is top notch while his personality/accessibility puts you at ease. Himself or his nurses were always available to answer questions in person. They checked on my son every morning before and after his surgery. He never tried to guess or project what would happen. He also never over explained or seemed frustrated repeating things to a layman. They clearly take pride in all aspects of their practice.

Dr Sacco is simply THE BEST! He has been our child's neurosurgeon since birth and she's almost 14 years old. Dr Sacco has been caring, kind and extremely patient with us. Of the many doctors and specialists our daughter has seen, he is her favorite! His office staff is also very professional and prompt. I highly recommend him. #SpinaBifida #Hydrocephalus #ChiariDecompression
