Dr. Sassower is a very knowledgeable, experienced, open-minded doctor. He has helped me immensely with an unusual sleep problem. When you are with him he seems to have all the time necessary to really listen to you and he treats you as a whole person. I think Dr. Sassower is both one of the top sleep specialists in Boston and also a wonderful human being.
