What People Say About Dr. Sarah Wagers, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Only one visit about a year ago after a traumatic brain injury. During that visit she asked questions but refused to listen to what I had to say. She would only listen to what my parent had to say, even though he had never experienced an injury similar to mine. She has zero bedside manner, she is extremely rude, she is inconsiderate, and her policy with me was that she saw me once and never had check ups to see how I was progressing. In fact the only time was 8 months later for a Cognitive Function Test. I passed said test. Then she refused to see me until July. 1 year and 1 month after my initial injury. All I needed was a note to clear me back to work. I could have gotten that so many months earlier but it would seem she believes it takes the exact same amount of time for a patient to heal, far longer then I needed. In all honesty if you get assigned her as a case manger do your best to get reassigned, I can only hope Frazier has more qualified doctors.

I would not recommend her as a doctor to anyone I know. She does not listen to family or make them feel apart of the patients team. She went against wishes and challenged/argued with me over simple requests. Worst doctor experience I have ever had. She also said things that were happening well with my loved one, in which we’re not accurate. (As if he was doing very well, but was not after speaking with other nursing care). She saw my loved one less than 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

Dr. Wagers has always been very nice to me, and has always listened to my questions and concerns in a very caring way. I have nothing but good things to say about her.

Dr. Wagers is extremely rude and a terrible doctor. She treated a family member and did not know what she was doing I would not recommend an animal to her.
