Dr. Saka has done so much to help me with my peripheral neuropathy pain from a vitamin B12 deficiency. I was in so much pain and he listened to me and always gave me thorough evaluations and helpful treatment plans. Dr. Saka is kind and patient.

Dr. Saka is the best. My first surgery went so well I am going back to him for the other foot. I am a nervous mess and probably a terrible patient but he remains patient, thorough, responsive. Great bedside manner dealing with my anxiety, funny, charming, understanding.

I went to see Dr. Saka, after receiving several positive recommendations from neighbors and friends, about a pain I was having in my big toe joint. Dr. Saka diagnosed my problem and after sharing several methods for reducing the pain, he recommended surgery. I agreed with his evaluation and decided upon surgery as the best method for solving the problem. My surgery went very well and I am on the road to total restoration of toe range of movement, not to mention, I am finally painfree!!!
