Had a Colectomy in 2006. Have a J pouch now that has given me problems ever since. The problem is that there is an Angle somewhere between my pouch, and rectum, which makes me unable to have bowel movement unless i use a large catheter to manually empty it. I've been told that another surgery is not an option to fix the problem. Not a great way to go thru life!

He performed surgery on a intestinal blockage in August 2017. He created short-bowel syndrome because he didn't reconnect the intestine, and put it straight into the colon. He did not advise me in advance that this could be an outcome of the surgery. When I went to see him as a follow-up after the surgery he was very rude, yelled at me, and would not address the short-bowel syndrome. When, at his request, I went for a further follow-up visit, he said "why are you here?" He yelled at me again and told me not to come back and to go and see a general surgeon to fix the short-bowel syndrome, then frog-marched me out of his office. I would stay as far away from this person as you can.

I have been cancer free for almost 10 years thanks to his treatment on my case. He is absolutely the best and most thorough doctor. Compassionate and informative I would not go to anyone else!

Couldn't even meet him. Drove a very far distance then waited 45 minutes in waiting room then an hour in the examination room. Finally inquired about wait time with one of the receptionists and was the rudely informed that there was still two patients ahead of us. Not a good first impression and we really miss our Doctor that left Rush.

Dr. Saclarides immediately diagnosed my problem, and gave me 3 options of surgery, explaining the risks and recovery timelines for each, along with success rates. I chose the option with the highest success rate, even though it meant weekly trips to the hospital for 2 months. I am cured! This is a great doctor and he has a great team. Would recommend to anyone!

Dr. Saclarides was wonderful. He immediately put me at ease and made me feel comfortable especially with discussing a sensitive topic. He thoroughly explained my diagnosis, offered multiple treatment options based on evidence, and answered my multitude of questions. I left feeling hopeful about my prognosis for the first time in weeks. The rest of the staff were great as well making the entire experience a positive one.
