It was a very timely and professional experience from start to finish. Staff followed up while inpatient and after discharge. Follow up testing and review with Dr. Saphier was timely and very comprehensive. Would advise anyone who needs an excellent surgeon with premier follow up care to utilize him.

I’m confident that without Dr. Saphier, my husband would not be alive today. He suffered a brain bleed two and a half years ago and throughout the entire ordeal when I didn’t know if my husband would live or die, Dr Saphier was brilliant, approachable, calm, and honest with me. My husband has made amazing strides in his recovery and I am forever grateful.

Dr. Saphier save my brother's life on August 30, 2017. He was secure and confident on his skills and knowledge. He took his risky case and a leap of faith with all of us. His case was serious, a severe hemorrhage bleed cause by a rupture of an AVM malformation. He was very sick and the chances of survival statiscally speaking were very low. Even when Dr. Saphier was direct and honest , he was willing to try his best in order to save my brother's life. He still with us today. FOREVER GRATEFUL. CI

I was under Dr Saphier care in February 2017. He saved my life (I am 75) with new procedure for removing blood clots. He is very nice and personable. Believe he really loves being a doctor and helping people. Awesome results.
