Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Sack started talking politics during the exam. I told him that my views differed from his and that I did not want to continue the political conversation. He then told me that it was unethical to discuss politics with his patients but he felt it was necessary in order for others to "see the light" and continued talking about his views. I was very uncomfortable with this interaction. He did not listen to my request to not continue this line of conversation. I didn't feel safe voicing my opinion as he was condescending and arrogant and belittling anyone that disagreed with him. I was afraid it would affect my treatment. I will not be returning.

I’d been to three other G.I. doctors before choosing Dr. Sack. His mission statement is what sold me on going to see him plus the positive reviews. I checked out his background and chose him out of 10. Because of my condition. I needed an honest opinion on whether to have surgery or not. Dr Sack recommended I have an upper G.I. done and a colonoscopy at the same time since I was over 50. He explained what the procedure would be like. Dr Sack has a sincere, honest delivery. 5 stars
