I have been a patient of Dr. Sachson for almost two years, I can be a high maintence patient at times (I also dabble in the homeopathic treatment world as well which Dr. Sachson tolerates but give clear guidance about which is nice). Dr. Sachson and Amie (his PA) who commonly works with/speaks to patients on his behalf is always a pleasure (both Dr. Sachson and Amie respond very quickly via email and phone call)- she is patient, warm, and kind but the message is always direct, clear, and honest- which is a big deal because sometimes my medical issues can cause a brain fog where I can get repetitive or mixed up. I’m never confused about exactly what they think or want me to do or exactly what is going on- which helps tremendously. Even when the pandemic hit and everyone was in the dark I was able to zoom appointments and never felt forgotten about or on my own. I’m sure they received 500 of the same questions that day, but handled my concerns with care. I have also seen quite a few Dr.

Go to Sachson for Type 1 Diabetes. Office set up well for education, appointments, and technology. Knowledgable staff knows how to get the CGM's and insulin pumps uploaded so the health expert can see what is going on and advise you.

Dr. Sachson has been my physician since 1979. He is thoughtful and thorough, but his schedule is packed so is reluctant or unable to give as much time as one might want when discussing medical concerns. However rushed he may seem, he is clear in discussing health outcomes, and medications. He can be a scold, but that's his nature. If you don't follow his directions, he can get a bit testy, but he speaks what he understands to be true. I would recommend him.

I'm a complex case and Dr. Sachson understands that. It was difficult to find an endocrinologist who had any sort of background or understanding in my condition but Dr. Sachson not only has it but keeps up on current research and treatments coming down the pipeline. He also speaks to me as someone who understands what is going on as opposed to treating me like an outsider when it comes to my own health and welfare. The office isn't the best, and the nurses, but the doctor himself is great.
