If you like waiting a hour or more past your appointment time this is the dr for you! After waiting that long he is short and runs out the door as soon as he can!

Every thing was great. Dr. Saks is a great doctor. A year ago I had my eyelids lifted. I can see everything so well I leave my glasses off a lot. I have a true panoramic view of everything. Before my eyes lids came down over half of my eye. Also, very little pain. Thank you Dr. Saks!!!!
