Patient Comments (8)
Nicholasville, KY |
Caring physician. Highly recommended.
Lexington, KY |
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.
Georgetown, KY |
The care Dr. Sara provided me with was really unmatched. Cannot be happy more as a patient.
Grayson, KY |
Dr Sara performed laser ablation on my leg veins. The results are stunning and cannot be happy more.
Northport, AL |
Dr Sara has been my nephrologist for 7 years and he kept me away from dialysis since then. I was stage 4 kidney disease when I started seeing him. I cannot speak more good words of him.
