Harrisburg, PA |
I used to be quite happy with Dr. Sachs initially. However, in the last couple of years it has become harder to get in contact with her during flare-ups and getting medication has been a nightmare. Recently I had to do without a medication for over almost two months because her office failed to submit the proper paperwork for a pre-authorization. This was the second time this happened in a six month period. This is completely unacceptable and I have chosen to look for a new rheumatologist.

I like Dr. Sachs. She listens, is compassionate, is willing to try the less expensive meds first to see how they work, and she is good at explaining things. My issue would be with the office staff. Typically when checking in I hear about how busy they are, etc. (yet it is never very busy). It's also difficult to get the phone answered. I've also had issues with the specialty pharmacy calling and never getting a return to their message - so it's not Dr. Sachs that's the issue, but others.

I am extremely disappointed in dr Sachs. She was highly recommended to me. I had a very bad lupus flare. She prescribed methotrexate and I had an allergic reaction. I called her office Ns had to leave a message no response. The next medicine the same thing happened. I went to my family doctor. This is not how you treat a patient.
