Dr. Sachar Says:
"

As a physician, my goal is to both treat and educate my patients. I do my best to explain conditions and include patients in the decision making process. I don't always achieve this goal. If I have not satisfied your needs, please call me and let me know. Even after many years, I continue to grow and improve. It's what I love about what I do. So reach out to my office and give me feedback and let me improve. Thank you.

Very prompt, great at explaining what he saw and didn’t as well as what would be the next step if I didn’t get better

Because I want to help others and hope that Dr. Sachar could mention "before" surgeries if he thinks a persons finger is too small and may cause damage to a tendon I will post my experience. Ultimately I blame myself for having a bump on my finger surgically removed, it was a bad call on my part....more

Saw Dr. Sachar on a recommendation from my PT. He was very knowledgeable and very efficient to diagnose and treat a finger issue. Was very easy to talk to and I felt like I was heard and understood.

I have known Dr. Sachar since about 2010. He is knowledgeable in his field. I had carpal tunnel surgery for my left hand and it went very well. He has also taken care of my mother with success. He is approachable and has a thorough understanding of the hand and upper extremities.

Dr. Sachar did surgery on my left hand several years ago and I was extremely happy. Needless to say my right hand now needs the same surgery and I'm in the process of setting that up.
