I trust no one else in caring for my loved one. I can't say enough about Dr. Paul Sacks....he truly cares about his patients and is so easy going and kind that you feel very comfortable around him. He's not stuffy like other doctors and he sees us as his equals which makes excellent patient and doctor rapport ... He knows kidneys like no other...absolutely I vote him to be top of his game, one of the best in the field, and I am sooo...thankful for Dr. Paul Sacks!!

Dr. Sacks is nice enough, but his staff is totally incompetent. If you are in the hospital or crisis they could care less. They promise to call and make arrangements, but they never return your call. Even if you have doctor's and hospital orders they will just ignore them. If you ate really sick and don't want to become a number don't go here. We still have not heard back from them and have found care elsewhere.
