Dr. Sach's provided excellent, personal, insightful care for my presenting concerns. She was very easy to talk to, genuinely interested in understanding my questions and issues. She provided very thorough and timely feedback regarding her assessment of my medical concerns. She went out of her way to provide me with helpful and thoughtful resources and referrals. I felt very comfortable talking to her about a wide range of concerns, and she was very respectful and kind.


Good experience.


I have known a doctor to be so familiar with my medical history as was *Dr. Sachs. She obviously spent a great deal of time, and gave a lot of thought to my condition. She made me feel like an important person. She called and spoke with me for over twenty minutes on her day off.
