in Coxsackie, NY |
Dr. Nina Sax has been my doctor for many years. She is well educated, incredibly compassionate and my favorite doctor. I will miss her when she retires!!!!
Clifton Park, NY |
This doctor performs unnecessary procedures (in my opinion). After which, the insurance company will deny the claim and then she'll come looking to you for money! It would be fine if it actually had to do with your safety and well-being, but it's not. Think it has more to do with lining their pockets. I would stay away from this doctor.
in Delmar, NY |
Dr Sax is very competent, experienced, warm and engaging. Many doctors are experts at their fields but lack people skills so I highly recommend this doctor to get the total package! I was very happy with her with care!
