Dr Sashko takes the time to listen and come up with effective treatments. I feel like he really cares for my well being.

Not a pleasant doctor and refused to refer to psychiatrist for proper medication treatment without coming in for an appointment knowing I was paying out of pocket for each visit.
Kent, WA |
I would not recommend this incompetent man to anyone for any medical treatment. He doesn't even look at you when he talks to you and he never spends more than 10 that 15 minutes in the room. He has never asked any questions about myour health goals or plans and he has not even shaken my hand once as a new patient. He is always in a rush and his office fails to get messages handled accordingly. I have quality insurance and I am am not here on some handout. This man and his staff are horrible.

I've been with Doctor Sashko now since 1998 and the doctor is a professional and caring provider. Dr. Sashko is thoughtful and attentive. He listens to every word you say and questions your responses appropriately and thoroughly. An avid fly fisherman, a personable fellow and a great, all-around medical provider and professional.

I am happy with the care that Dr Sashko provides me. He's up to date on latest treatments and medical advances and does a great job diagnosing symptoms and keeping me perking along. I appreciate and trust him and am glad he's on my team!

Down to business and knows what he is talking about. My wife hates his seemingly impersonal manner but I don't go in to make friends.
