Dr. Sabala was wonderful. It was my 1st visit with her. She took time to ask me general and appropriate questions regarding my health concerns, daily habits and overall lifestyle habits. I at no time did I feel rushed or uncomfortable.If you are looking for a quality primary care doctor....with a holistic bonus......then Dr. Sabala is worth exploring.... The Holistic bonus is having a compassionate, competent Dr. with the DO extension (doctor of osteopathic medicine).....

While I'm sure she may be good for certain things, I would definitely not recommend her if you are struggling with mental health. The cold and judgmental treatment I received plus talking over me after asking a question made it verydifficult to want to seek additional help after but I'm glad I eventually did. Doing much better with a compassionate doctor who listens now.

Terrible. She was rude every time. Saw her for the first time at age 20. First visit -- she asked me "what was wrong" with my eyes in a rude way (Duane's Syndrome), told me I smelled like cigarette smoke (myfamily smokes. All she wanted was to jump me birth control pill to birth control pill. I didn't want the pill, but the implant or patch. So glad I left her and got a doctor who listened.

Dr. does not take care of patients with health issues at all. The doctor was very rude and cut me off when I told her I have low testosterone. She told me I need to go to a specialist. This doctoris not a good doctor if she is in the business of seeing a patient just to refer the patient to another doctor.My other family doctor took care of all my health needs, unlike this doctor. The doctor's handshake when she came in the room was very unwelcoming. I highly do not recommend this doctor. I left half way through the appointment. She is very rude and condescending the way she talks to you also.

This review is based on my one and only visit to Dr. Sabala's office. I will not return. Dr. Sabala had horrible bedside manner - very short, abrupt sentences, and really doesn't respond to questions. Because I am not a trainedhealthcare professional, I wanted a doctor who would take the time to explain things to me. She would not take the time and would seem frustrated as I continued to ask more questions. Example: Dr. Sabala - "your blood pressure is high" Me: "Oh, what does that mean?" Dr. Sabala - "It's high."

Waited less than a few minutes to be seen by the doctor. She spent a good amount of time with me and answered all my questions thoroughly, It never felt like she was rushing or staring at her computer, like I'veexperienced with other doctors. She took my concerns seriously, and gave me specific steps to address them (getting labs done to diagnose potential issues, strategies for improving my diet and health, etc.). She was direct and clear. Highly recommend!!!

Dr. Bozena Sabala was very professional, kind and showed concern for my health condition. She right away took ownership of my medical condition and targeted a plan to help minimize my pain level. She was knowledgeable and able to bring thatplan into a summary of the actions to take and the instructions to follow in order to reach a more healthier life. I was pleasantly impressed with Dr. Bozena Sabala so much that I decided to keep her as my Family physician as well as my dermatologist for as long as I can. Thank you!

She is the first doctor I've ever had who spends more than 5 minutes with you and who actually takes time to look at you while you speak rather than sitting there staring into a computer screen while typing the wholetime. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. Her office staff are friendly and the office is immaculate. Lastly, I never wait more than 5 minutes.
