In his visit yesterday Dr Sawke was rude and dismissive to my brother I'm wondering if his behavior was because my brother was a first time pt and was referred by another surgeon not from the Henry Fird system for a back operation. My brother needed a referral through his new insurance and had only recently moved to the Wiodhaven area. What ever the reason. This Dr was rude. Saying you don't need a back operation. It probably won't work anyway. TotAlly inappropriate behavior!

My whole family and I have been going to Dr. Sawka for over 15 years. He is fantastic, caring, knowledgeable and professional. He has helped all of us throughout the years. His entire staff is wonderful. I would recommend Dr. Sawka to anyone. :)

Dr. Sawka has been my physician for about 20 years. Always professional and honest about everything he has ever treated me for or diagnosed. Encourages you to do the basic things first such as losing weight, exercising and eating/sleeping well before subscribing medication. He always takes the time to explain in detail all the questions I ask. I feel confident and trust him. Hopefully he'll be my doctor until the end of my days. I believe he will, he's about five years younger than i am.
Was very pleased with how friendly and polite everyone was with me the doctor himself very nice doesn't keep you waiting for hours and I he doesn't make you feel like your a idiot very pleased and will return and recommend keep up the great work

Dr. Sawka has great bed side manor and very kind which is extremely important to me since a lot of doctors can be rude and cocky; he speaks in a way I understand. He takes his time with me and listens to me every time I go for a visit. The staff is also very kind and that is great since they are the face of the business... nothing is worse than rude people at the front desk. I highly recommend Dr. Sawka, I have been going here for a very long time and will continue to. Also, VERY clean!!!!
in Carleton, MI |
Dr. Mark Sawka saved my husbands life, not once but twice. If Dr. Sawka wasn't as thorough as he was during my husbands office visit my husband would have died. After Dr. Sawka received all the lab work back that he ordered he called us and had my husband go directly to the ER. My husband was admitted and had to have 5 pints of blood. Dr. Sawka is a physician that truly cares about his patients. E.Konopka
