Bruce J. Sachs, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Having a personal relationship with my patients allows me the opportunity to be an effective listener, diagnostician and educator.  I am passionate in my pursuit of cardiovascular disease stabilization and prevention, early disease detection, and maximizing quality of life.  I believe this is best accomplished through a collaborative relationship with my patients.
