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.

The best if the best! After 10 years of UC I decided I had to get my Colon removed. I had my J Pouch surgery 28 years ago, I have lived a normal life since then and I am so greatful!
