I am 89 years old and have been a patient of Dr. Sachs for many years. When i began to see him I was overweight and suffered from high blood pressure, lack of energy and other symptoms.

My husband & I are both patients of Dr. Sachs. We applaud how thorough our annual physicals are & feel Dr. Sachs takes the time to listen & advise us on any health concerns we might have.

The story is simple. He returns every email or phone call within 24 hours, he does not overprescribe, he listens, he is hugely educated on current issues in medicine, he knows my personality and he has saved my ass more than once. Thank you.

from CHERYL in CA February 4, 2024 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

Being a patient of Dr. Sachs cannot be captured, by me, with a single achievement, or even an 'aha' moment of understanding. His professionalism and caring, and that of his staff, makes me believe we can proceed through this aging process - and live the best life possible. It's the unexpected check-in to see how I am doing, it's the thoughtful, or educational or light-… See more

from Mary in CA January 22, 2024 for Bruce J. Sachs, MD

Dr. Sachs is ALWAYS there for you ever after you are no longer sick. Recently, I had an upper respiratory infection. During my illness, Dr. Sachs called every day to insure that I was doing better and asked me to call him at the office or at home. Yes, I can contact him at any time, any day, any hour. He is there for me 100%. He continued to call me to be sure there wasn't anything… See more

I've been a patient of Dr. Bruce Sachs for many years. He has been a doctor that is not content with the status quo. He is always looking for better ways to improve his ability to help his patients. One such time for me came when he recommended that I have a test to check for plaque that might have an effect on my hearts ability to function at it's best. Sure enough I had some… See more

I developed the first skin substitute for burn patients in the 70’s, retired a few months ago.
For several years have been under the expert care of Dr Bruce Sachs. He is the best Internist I have known. Super thorough, competent and compassionate. Enjoy bringing fine wine to Bruce and staff to show appreciation for care received. Sincerely, Aubrey Woodroof PhD MBA
