he is the best but the staff does not let my messages get to him I do not expect toreturn to the office if I can't see him Geraldine bellows
Debary, FL |
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.

Great surgeon I will recommend Dr Sawin to anyone.Just had cervical surgery on my c3 c4 on July 22.2016 everything went well. Went home with no pain didn't need to take my meds after day 2. Thank you Dr.Sawin for giving me my life back.

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
in SORRENTO FL |
Dr Sawin performed lumbar fusion L5-S1 along with removal of old hardware at L4-He Also performed a lamectomy and discetomy. LEVEL L5-S1. I am so thankful to Dr Sawin, my leg pain and foot drop is gone. He gave me my life back.
Clermont, FL |
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
in Titusville FL |
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!!!
in Florida |
My experience was nothing short of amazing; I met with with Lisa not the doctor (RN practitioner) she was knowledgeable, through and explained everything from what the next best step was and our concerns regarding potential back surgery. We found the entire staff friendly, helpful and kind. I was recommended to Dr. Sawin by the orthopedic surgeon who did my knee replacement as well as a physical therapist and a previous patient, so That says it all.
