There are two days in the year that we can not do anything – yesterday and tomorrow. -"Gandhi". Dr Sazgar has spoken to me with such determination and has had not only one; but a few plans for my current seizures. I have felt more comfortable in her care than any others. The few doctors I have had to look into this condition have done a tenth of what Dr. Sazgar has done in less than half the time for me. I cannot thank her and the rest of her team enough !

My teenage daughter has been so fortunate to be under the care of Dr. Sazgar. In Dr. Sazgar we have found the neurologist we have always looked for: a top epileptologist, competent and knowledgeable, but also warm, kind and with the best bedside manners. Dr. Sazgar truly cares about her patients, and is a wonderfully attentive listener. She doesn't just treat the seizures, she also cares about side effects and the patient's treatment satisfaction. She wants you to be happy as well as seizure fre

I found Dr Sazgar when looking for a physician specializing in epilepsy with the intent to change the antiseizure medication that I'd been on for 50+ years. After reviewing my history, and I went through her recommending diagnostic testing, Dr.Sazgar concluded that I no longer need ANY medication! She is an amazing physician and I highly recommend her, especially if you're a woman with epilepsy.

Dr. Sazgar has been wonderful for my wife as she has struggled with epilepsy. We were referred to her by another neurologist who spoke highly of her and we have never been disappointed. She has a very caring personality and has always been available for our many questions. Most importantly, she is tops in her field and my wife is doing much better under her care. I would highly recommend Dr. Sazgar.

Dr. Sazgar is such a wonderful neurologist. She has always been there for me in my struggle with epilepsy and in some of my most hardest of times. She has given me wonderful guidance on my medical decisions and had great knowledge all around on epilepsy and what is best for my specific situation. She listens to my concerns and spends good time with me in trying to find the best solution.

Her amazing diagnosis, expertise, professionalism, and determination has downright given me my life back. My out of control temporal lobe seizures left me in a state of despair. Dr. Sazgar led her team in performing state of the art testing to identify the exact portion of my brain that was holding me back from mastering my skill set in computer science. After performing several electroencephalograms and other pre surgical evaluations, she was able to determine exactly where my medical issue was
