I had major back surgery and when I went back for check up, I had to see nurse practioner. That was 3 years ago and I haven’t seen Saer since. I have had constant pain and Dr Saer let me know he did his job and was finished with me, right after surgery.

I had surgery in 1998 at Baptist Health and Dr. Saer performed a spinal fusion at L4/L5. Although the healing process took quite a while I was able to eventually return to the workforce. I am a full time RN. I was 38 when the surgery was done and I am now 59.

I had a lumbar, sacral fusion done. I didnt know he was putting pelvic rods in too. I went in weighing 120 lbs and had a nice flat stomach. After surgery I looked 6 months pregnant. I went back to him and explained it to him and he had the nerve to put his hand on my shoulder and said "maybe you're eating better since you have less pain. I wanted to throat punch him. My left side is deformed now and I had to buy bigger pants because of his surgery. He messed up and won't admit it.

I have a review. What sort of doctor does a major spine surgery on a 70 year old woman and leaves her in major pain and crying nearly every night!

Dr. Saer has performed 2 surgeries on my, one cervical and one lumbar. He is an excellent doctor, showing concern and compassion, while being very knowledgeable and explaining everything in a way that is easy to understand. Be prepared for LONG wait times, but he is worth the wait. His nurse and assistant and both very helpful. Don't be surprised if you see his assistant before you see the Dr, but that is not a bad thing as it gives Dr. Saer more time with patients when they most need it.
