Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I saw Dr. Sabovic years ago for bartonella and babesiosis. He was thorough and caring, calling when my labs came in immediately and advising my treatment at that time. I am ever grateful for the time and care he gave me consistently. Bev in Mansfield

couldn't read simple Lyme tests, which he is not well versed in as he is a Family Doctor no literate in Lyme disease plus co infections. He will send you for random tests and bloodwork that he won't go over. Its a mess in that place. Lady answers the phone is so rude and will hang up and talk over you the entire time. not to mention its their house they are working out of, as they will convince you to do all these tests. read the reviews thoroughly. Does not close door when with patient so other patients in "waiting room" which was his living room, hear everything going on. Did not check in on patient, no calls, no follow up.

I had/have Lyme Dz probably since about 2008 when I moved to NJ. After many diagnoses, including MS, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, etc., lots of time, lots of money and a couple of "big names" that were charging 3 to 4 times that of Dr. Sabovic. I found him in 2016, Labs were expensive but direct and I finally had a real working diagnosis of LD and Babesiosis..... I am much improved, but with LD, the NIH and CDC have been asleep while on guard for the nations health, for at least 2 decades. He always spends a great deal of time with me and treats me well.

He takes no insurance, contrary to info here. Perhaps a means to avoid litigation and medical review boards, or maybe just pure greed. He preys on desperate people and refuses to consider anything but Lyme/co-infections. He refuted my prior MS Dx and often changed his story to keep me as a patient. So unethical. Even after expensive & inconclusive test results, he had me endure 8 months of reckless antibiotic use with no change except for a chronic yeast infection. Total sham. Avoid at any cost.

Dr Sabovic has saved my life. I have neurological issues and he has been helping and treating me for many year. He is attentive and truly caring. He is the best doctor I’ve ever seen..and I have seen my fair share of Dr’s. Absolutely recommend him for any stage of Lyme and Co infections.

Terrible experience. The dosages are crazy and scary. If you have a Lyme do not go there. He promised to send blood test to California and it never happened. It is hard to communicate.
