Patient Comments (4)
Dr. Sawyer displayed an extremely hostile attitude. Could never recommend him.
in Andover, MA |
Dr Sawyer has been taking care of my husband and I as well as my brother for many years. He is wonderful and has a great personality. He jokes with you and explains things making you feel comfortable. He is terrific. One time the nurse had difficulty with my IV - he offered to help and do it himself. The guy rocks - and we are retired and have a lot of experience with doctors. We feel fortunate to have him for a doctor.

Outstanding doctor. If you don't use him, your a Fool!

4 years ago I had to have an endoscopy. Dr Sawyer was assigned to me. he was very late to get me, so with the nurse's OK i took a quick shower prior to it. Dr Sawyer came to the the patient ward, and began to berate me outside the door of the shower, in front of staff, patients and passers by. Not only was this experience embarrassing for me as a patient in the hospital, but it was disturbing to the patients on the floor and damaging to his credibility as a professional to his colleagues.
