HUNTLEY |
Dr Saks performed surgery on both eyes for ptsosis of the eyelids. This is a condition when the eye lids are drooping and it becomes difficult to see. It was a complete failure and resulted in my eyelashes covering a good part of my eye. He said Medicare would pay for surgery on only one eye, and I had to pay for the other eye., which I did. When I got my medicare statement, He charged Medicare for both eyes. Today my vision is still blurred.
The office is poorly managed. Wait times vary between 2 and 4 hours. The staff is harried and stressed. Dr. Saks is brusque and dismissive, likely because he is seeing several patients at the same time. You can see him walking back and forth between appointments, but he won't meet your eye or even say "just a few more minutes." I cannot speak to his expertise as he was unable to find the pre-identified issue that generated the referral to a specialist.

This office does not run on time. I saw Sr Saks twice and he dismissed my concerns, when I had obvious problems. I would not recommend for cosmetic surgery

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!!!!

Scheduling was handled poorly by staff. Had wrong name on surgery appointment. And took 30 minutes to rectify. Someone needs to address this situation before a surgery mistake is made.
