Prior to the last phase of my late wife's battle with Alzheimer's Dr. Sachs had prepared me for what I could expect. He was caring, empathetic and always helpful and making her last days as bearable as possible for both of us.

My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Sachs. We are totally amazed at the way he cares for the whole person, not just the physical person.

I recently had a physical and I never had such a… See more

Dear DR Sachs, I would like you to know how comforting it is to have you as my MDVIP doctor. You have been my primary doctor for many years before MDVIP and I was skeptical of why you were joining this group and would it improve my health care .

Dr. Sachs has been my primary care physician for over 15 years. Three years ago I relocated to a new residence over 20 miles from his office. I did not at any time consider changing to another physician closer to my new home, since I was so pleased with his professionalism and that of his small, but cheerful and helpful staff. As an 89 year old with many physical challenges, he has… See more

I have been a patient of Dr. Sachs's for a long time. When my husband and I ever bring up moving from the area...we say... but what about Dr. Sachs? and that is the honest truth. It is difficult to describe briefly all that his care has done for our family so I will just say that if you are looking for these qualities in a doctor...then this is the right person for you..
