Dr. Sara has been my Nephrologist since 2011. Excellent kidney doctor who preserved my kidney function over years so I do not get on dialysis. He sincerely cares about his patients. I would recommend Dr. Sara and BlueGrass Renal to anyone.

I went to Dr. Sara for he also does cosmetic procedures. However, he does not list this on his sign outside his office or in his office which I found very odd. I found him on Groupon listed as Advanced Skin and Vein Care. I went for a spider vein consultation and was told it was free. At the time of my visit, I waited 1.5 hours. I felt like this was because my consult was free. Well, free doesn't mean free with these people. They filed a claim with my insurance and sent me a bill for $60.

As dialysis patient under care of Dr. Sara for almost five years I can say that what set him far from other kidney doctors is his full dedication to his patients. I never felt as a number under his care or never left behind as he is always there for me.
