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.

At a time when I needed his understanding and support, Dr. Sachs was there for me. He made me feel that he fully understood what I was going through and was caring and solicitous. It made the ordeal more bearable.

from George in CA February 19, 2014 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

At my annual, I related some symptoms, including a severe headache, that my sister, in Cleveland, was experiencing to Dr. Sachs because I had experienced something similar although nowhere near as severe.

from Fred and Shirley in CA February 12, 2014 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

Dr. Sachs has been there for us as we've managed our way thru a number of health crises as we've aged over the years. He has been our MDVIP doctor and very important to us ever since he started in the MDVIP program.

from Frank in CA February 13, 2014 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

I am Frank and over the last few years I have suffered two heart attacks and a stroke. My wife Connie and I have been patients of Dr. Sachs for many years. When he became part of the MDVIP program his ability to spend more time with his patients increased dramatically. This allowed him more time to monitor my medication regimen, assess my blood work ups and to develop the best health care… See more
