I have found that Dr Sager and his office associates we're very aware of my circumstances and what I needed to continue treatment for my health issues. They also exhibited a high degree of professionalism and personal interest in my needs. They have kept up to date on the changing vicissitudes of my various issues and specialist appointments so that I did not need to worry regarding informing them of what was happening with me. I have complete confidence that they are up to date with my care and treatment. They also have taken the time to go above and beyond the call of duty to inform me of various resources I can access for my needs as a senior citizen.

nobody - however, because of my high deductible on my health insurance, I generally must pay out of pocket for much of my cost. I do feel your prices are high! I recently had an Angiogram done and I was shocked when I saw the price you guys where charging. Almost 3 times what the internet says the average cost for such an exam should be. I am not sure I understand how/why you feel it necessary to charge such a high price.
February 03, 2022
All have been respectful, knowledgeable, and helpful!

Brenna, Dr. Sager's Assistant. Also the woman who scheduled my ultrasound: she called to offer me options when the tech I was scheduled with became ill and had to leave.
