About five years ago Dr. Sager covered for my psychiatrist who was out of town. A medication he prescribed me was so beneficial that I continue to take it to this day. I trust his knowledge and professional opinion without hesitation!

He really didn't listen to what I had to say. He really overmedicated me and I felt that I was taken advantage of for my insurance's and my own money. I really recommend seeing someone else because there is a strong chance he will neglect your needs in my opinion. He did not factor in physical medical problems of mine before deciding to put me on so much medication and it really burnt me out to the point where I lost all hope in life. Be aware of your rights and don't let this happen to you

I felt like he was most interested in the speediness with which I paid my bill. On one occasion he stayed longer with me and then when I got the bill he had actually charged me for two sessions! I called to ask if this was a mistake and it was not. Many times the sessions were more about, What med refill to you need?.Often he would not return my voice mail. And/or the appointments were not scheduled properly. Odd that on Patient Fusion he has great reviews, but you cannot read them.
