after filling out the patient history sheet sent home, no one once asked me for it. I never even had an opportunity to hand it over. how do you think you can beat treat my injury without knowing more about my long term chronic pain issues. I did not feel like the concern was really acknowledged when I verbally mentioned this.

August 01, 2017

Dr. Sakr is very friendly and listen to my complaints very well. Also, Dr. Sakr made me feel like I am part of the team making the decisions for my care. I have complete trust in Dr. Sakr.

July 19, 2017

The doctor took his time with me and answered my questions.

July 18, 2017

excellent care always with Dr Sakr and staff

July 17, 2017

Provider was great.

June 30, 2017

everything was great except they told me to call Monday July 3rd to get my MRI results but noone answered the phone or returned my call. Maybe it was a holiday for them and they forgot? either way, they were all fast curtious and friendly. Dr. Sakr was fully engaged in all my questions, the nurse was very polite and the MRI Doctor was pretty funny and gavw a relaxing atmosphere to a sort of stressful for me MRI.

Dr. Sakr is a great doctor to have. I arrived to my appointment early (had an 8:15am appointment/ arrived at 7:42 am), the front desk checked me in and within minutes he came in the room to see me. This is a true testament to this provider that he cares about his patients. I work within the system and everyone talks about physician lateness, which he does not show. He was there and ready to see patients before the scheduled time. Kudos to Dr. Sakr for being ready for his patients.

June 27, 2017

Dr. Sakr was very caring and thoughtful and listened to what I had to say. He explained thoroughly what my treatment options were, but I ultimately felt his expert recommendations and advice were best. During the treatment procedure, he acted with compassion.

June 20, 2017

I had never gone to Dr. Sakr, previously, and he was great. Very satisfied.

June 20, 2017

I have already recommended Dr. Sakr to a friend, he is very, very, comforting and his, as they say, (bedside manner) is wonderful.
