100% the best neurosurgeon in Central Florida. He spent the extra time explaining things and ultimately the surgery was 100% also. It was immediate relief after surgery.

I would definitely recommend Dr Sawin. He did my back surgery in January and I am very pleased with the results. He spent time speaking with us before the surgery and after the surgery. Came into my hospital room everyday to see how I was doing.

Excellent doctor. Straight forward in explanations and listened when I asked questions. Good bedside manner. Cares about his patients. My surgery went good and he made sure to check in on me before I left the hospital. The people he uses during his surgeries are the best of the best.

After reading the requirements to make an appointment, I e-mailed my MRI to the office with an attached letter and never heard back. After a couple weeks I found another surgeon that is more caring that would repair my C4,5, and 6 and had surgery. I'm very disappointed in the process in which to make an appointment with this doctor.

Dr. Sawin is extraordinarily competent as a spinal surgeon having performed on me a very complex multi-level lumbar stabilization emergency surgery. He is extremely patient taking his time explaining the condition, surgical procedure, short and long term recovery benchmarks. He does not sugarcoat the details and gives the patient reasonable expectations for outcome. But beyond the technical ability, he is the most compassionate and sincere human being I have ever met in the medical profession

I consulted with the good Dr., he was very nice but after he sent me for a CT scan, I never heard from his office staff again. I personally delivered my CT scan and was told he had to evaluate it before I could make an appt. I left messages over a 2 week period and no one called me back. No matter how many times I called his office, I did not get a response. I couldn't figure out why especially when he told his secretary to fit me in due to my operation being urgent. I dec. to see another Dr

Dr. Sawin and his surgical team are amazing. He performed my second back surgery and the difference in the quality of care, personal one on one treatment, the professionalism, and compassion with him versus my first surgeon is like the difference between daylight and dark. To this point, 5 weeks after surgery, I am in better physical and mental condition than I have been in nearly 3 years. I'm very pleased with Dr. Sawin. He can do no wrong!!!
