A 50 minute consultation, with asany truths being told as possible in a short amount of time. Was given "new patient forms" to being to my next scheduled appointment, asked to email contact info for other doctors I've seen, and discusseda 3rd appointment the week of Thanksgiving before he goes on vacation. ALL before a voicemail & email explaining he doesn't believe he can help. And no "true" answer as to why. He cancelled the next appointment, & never even contacted my primary care physician. Who, by the way, believes the way Dr. Sacks handled this was completely unprofessional. I had VERY high hopes for Dr Sacks to help me, but to lead me to believe I'd see him again, only to be dumped as a patient, all while dancing around the true reason why, is unacceptable, & quite frankly, sad. IF this review does get posted (doubtful), please take into account reheat the doctors on this site PAY for only the good reviews to show up (per my PCP). Just take that into consideration.
