      Dr. Sager is a true gem. I have had the most severe pulmonary issues for over eight years and had to move from Pasadena to Santa Barbara to get away from air pollution. Finding exceptional doctors has been a real challenge. I have a very complex and unique medical history. Dr. Sager took the time to call my doctors in San Francisco and Los Angeles, also to research a medical trial I am on in order to give me the best care possible. He researched drugs I am on that are off label in the manner

      Excellent Doctor in a town of mediocre physicians and overall bad service. Dr. Sager's office is great to work with and Dr. Sager stands out as the best in town as far as I'm concerned.
