Dr. Saco, as well as all the caregivers at LSDC, gave my husband the highest quality care. Dr. Saco makes a rather uncomfortable diagnostic procedure (colonoscopy) easily taken care of.

Could not get anyone to call me back about scheduling appointment despite repeated calls and messages left on their answering system and the letter they sent me about scheduling the appointment. If it is this hard to schedule an appointment, I would suggest seeing another doctor somewhere else. This is what I am doing.
