The visit was fine and everything went well. On leaving the receptionist mentioned he had three more procedures scheduled. I said I haven't heard anything about that. The patient was my husband. I asked if the Doctor could see me or call me and was told no, he didn't talk to patients. Needless to say we left.

Dr. Saber did some vascular work on both of my legs. He was professional, courteous and very kind. As well he took the time to diagnose another unrelated serious medical issue unrelated to his own specialty. His quick action and sound recommendation was wonderful and he made sure I was properly cared for. I am very grateful to this fine doctors r and his wonderful staff.

Long story shortened - My father was seeing Dr. Saber for months because his foot hurt and sores were appearing. Two ultrasounds were done, both times Dr. Saber said that "blood flow was good" and nothing needed to be done. Sores got worse. My father saw another vascular surgeon who found severe blockages - surgery was done, 4 stents and an aneurysm was repaired. My father still lost 2 toes on the foot. All this only weeks after Dr. Saber said that everything seemed fine. He was quite wrong.
