Dr Sachs explained my surgery in clear terms and answered my questions thoroughly. He has very good bedside manners and his office staff is terrific. I will definitely recommend him to family and friends and would return to him should I need any future procedures.

Two members of our family saw this surgeon. He never seems to be on top of things...doesn't know case until he's in the room and sits down to look at the file. Changes surgery plan. In one case added additional surgery. You never feel he is sure of what he is doing.
