in Denver Co |
Beware of this doctor and the hand surgery associates! Dr. Sachar recommended surgery for my finger. I scheduled a surgery that day for 7 days later . After that my surgery was re scheduled four different times in 3 business days including the last reschedule less than 48 before the surgery was supposed to take place and I finally had to tell them I couldnt re-schedule again and the option I was given then, less than two days before my surgery was wait 23 days or find another surgeon.

Miracle worker! Helped me and did wonders on my wrist. Thanks, Dr Sachar.
Castle Rock, CO |
Dr. Sachar was on call when I was in the ER with a dislocated elbow and broken bones in the elbow. Dr. Sachar was actively telling the ER what scans and Xray's to do so he would have everything he needed to do the necessary surgery ASAP. I feel he knew what he was talking about and how best to help me in the best and quickest way possible. I fell on a Friday, met with the Dr. to discuss the surgery on Monday and was in for surgery on Tuesday. My surgery went very well.
