Testimonials from patients of Dr. Sachs

from Coleman Rusty in CA March 13, 2020 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

My brother in law actually signed me up with Dr Sachs because he had been very ill and the good doc pulled him through it so when I became very sick he took me to Dr Sachs who immediately admitted me into the hospital. Turns out I have a very rare auto immune disease that Dr Sachs and the team he put together to manage my care was able to diagnose where others had failed. I ended up staying… See more

Dr. Sachs is amazing! His office staff is truly an extension of his caring.

I have been a patient of Dr. Sachs for a two years. During this time, he has taken a professional interest in my pulmonary fibrosis constantly encouraging me with suggestions and communicating with my primary lung specialist. Dr.Sachs' diagnosis of seasonal medical challenges I have encountered (a few… See more

from Natalie in CA March 10, 2020 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

Dr. Sachs is just special. When you talk to him you KNOW he is listening...really listening. Each appointment is a separate part of his day with new challenges...he does not lump concerns together. He deals with each issue on a personal and professional basis and looks for the things that you do not say.
This is the most unusual part...he listens for the unsaid things and brings them out… See more

from Doyleen in CA March 8, 2020 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

Dr. Sachs is a well informed doctor. He keeps up with all current health news. He is also quite bright.

While having a yearly visit with him he was not happy with something he encountered about me. So.....he sent me to a vascular surgeon and the surgeon said he was surprised an MD was able to diagnose my symptoms. So kudos doc.

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Sachs for… See more

from James in CA February 28, 2020 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

Dr. Bruce Sachs continues to take the time to get to know me in a way no other doctor has in my life. Because of this, I'm healthier than I've ever been (outside of the natural aging junk) and feel younger than I am. Dr. Sachs also continues to educate himself on the latest in proven medicine so what might have been okay results for me a year ago he now looks for ways for improvement… See more

from Ellis and Barbara in CA February 28, 2020 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

Bruce Sachs MD is the consummate physician Internist in every respect. He is thorough, compassionate, empathetic and incredibly knowledgeable
in his craft. Having spent 50 years in Medicine I know this to be absolutely true. His medical care and decision making process on behalf of my wife and I is matched only by his deeply sincere and concerned approach to our overall well being. It… See more

from Virginia in CA March 19, 2018 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

Among the many positive stories I have about Dr Sachs, one of the most recent occurred when I had the flu earlier this year. A call to him at 8:30 on a Sunday morning, found him already busy with patients that had called even earlier. After describing my symptoms, he asked for my pharmacy/phone number so he could call in my prescriptions. His biggest concern was getting Tamiflu which was… See more

from Lynda March 16, 2018 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

I welcome this opportunity to let you know how very much you and your office staff are respected, appreciated and loved by me personally and my family. The smartest thing I did when I first moved to San Diego County was to make my first visit to you. I came to you on premier recommendation from three of my dearest friends. My job at that time required travel all over the country and even a… See more
