Dr. Sauer has been taking care of my mother for 3 years, since her diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. He is a brilliant and caring Doctor. He only wants the best for his patients and he keeps up on all the recent treatments for Alzheimer's. I would highly recommend him for treatment of Alzheimer's disease.

Very rude man. Flat out told me he didn't care about the only reason I went to see him, didn't bother asking for my medical history and when I did manage to present my concern he dismissed it as being related to some other condition that I know I don't have because of continuous testing for it since my symptoms started ten years ago. Focused instead on the most minor of my issues that I don't need or want his dubious health with and hustled me out of his office to schedule a test I don't need.

I wish I would have read these review prior! This Dr is rude and unwilling to spend time with his patients. He had me diagnosed with out any test or symptom, he even wrote me a prescription I would never think about taking and did not want my previous medical files. I would not recommend going to this dr.

The most bizarre Doctor I have ever met!! He didn't allow me to ask questions. Unwilling to listen to my concerns. Extremely rude. He concluded our appointment saying that he couldn't help me but then proceeding to order some very expensive testing... A total miss!

Would not allow me to ask questions, was extremely disrespectful and never gave an exam before diagnosing me with an illness. After talking to my PCP, I was told to get a second opinion from a different Neurologist because he ( my PCP ) has no clue where Dr. Sauer's diagnosis came from and it really didn't fit the problems I've been having.

Terrible Doctor. I took My BF to see him one year post stoke. He did not even take us into a exam room. We went to his office, He clearly did not make himself familiar with his case and made no attempt to become so. He went right to his script pad before he even spoke to us, and wrote a script for a medicine that was not needed. His exam consisted of listening to his heart, and pushing for a test that was not covered by insurance and would cost 500$ ,and again not needed in this case. I tried to
