As a Registered Nurse, I am very aware of excellence and lack there of..I must say Dr Sahar is excellent! His examination is thorough and he addressed all of my nervous concerns in such a patient unhurried manner. he answered my questions and asked me some questions that helped me to make a bit more sense as to why I was feeling the way I was. he is truly a Renaissance Physician and his practice is also an art.
