He was thoroughly in his exam and told me about the surgery process and that it will be awhile before scheduling because of the Coronavirus right now.

I have had a very good experience with using Dr. Sachar for elbow surgery after I broke my elbow in 2019. I believe he is a highly skilled surgeon and would strongly recommend him.

I haven't had surgery yet, but Dr Sachar has worked very well with me on trying to avoid surgery on my severely arthritic thumb. Having consulted with Dr. Sachar a second time, I will be scheduling surgery with him to resolve my arthritis issue in my thumb, after I return from vacation. I am very comfortable with him and his openness, skill level and friendliness toward me as his patient. If you have hand issues, don't continue to suffer with the pain... GET THE PROBLEM FIXED... See Dr. Sachar and his team!

Dr Sachar is the choice of most of the OR nurses who have worked with him. He is a technically skilled surgeon. Knowledgeable in his field and a compassionate care provider. His office was very diligent in trying to work me into his busy schedule after a traumatic hand and shoulder injury.

Great surgery! Requires assistance with bedside manner. Could have been more communication before surgery and the post-op visit

Dr Sachar is exceptional. He took extra time to review the options for treatment of my broken hand. Very happy with all the attention i received after my accident. And for all follow up appointments, he went over x rays and progress of my recovery. He always was attentive to my concerns and to even all line of questions. He has was overly detailed on his explanations and never was hurried. I was left the impression that i wa his only patient. His staff was also friendly, helpful also.

I fell on the ice and broke my wrist. The ER doctor recommended a hand surgeon, who was too busy to call me back. I refuse to wait for help so I looked for another hand surgeon and found Dr Sachar. I got an appointment with him the same day! Dr Sachar used my X-rays to explain why I needed surgery and how he would fix my wrist. My surgery took place the very next day and went very well! I felt very safe going into surgery and I look forward to continuing my recovery with Dr Sachar.
