Dr. Sailors is not only a wonderful, talented Surgeon. He is a wonderful man. He saved our Mother's life this past week. He's a straight shooter with a heart of gold. He's honest and up front but at the same time caring and takes time to explain everything!! So thankful that the Lord placed our Mother (Mrs Shirley) in your hands!! Thank you Dr. Sailors. We will never be able to thank you enough!! Lesa Thompson-Brown Stephens County Georgia

He never showed up for two appointments. And one of the two he rescheduled and then didn’t show up. Never received an apology. Staff said this happens often. But didn’t apologize.

Dr. Sailors is a vascular surgeon. I have seen him in both the office and in the hospital. In Addition to being very professional, on every occasion he has been very caring, pleasant and I never felt rushed. He answered all questions in clear understandable manner. He will always be my "go to" doctor in his field.

Everything about my contact with Dr. Sailors and his staff has been exceptional. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Sailors. He is very professional, personable and caring. I was going through significant problem requiring surgery. He spent a lot of time with me and my family, explained in detail everything involved. I would never consider anyone else if I had a Vascular problem. Without reservation. I recommend Dr. Sailors. He saved my life.
