Dr. Sacks is one of the most kind, professional and intelligent doctors that I have had the pleasure of meeting and being examined by. He left no stone unturned to arrive at a succinct result regarding issues related to my healthcare. Furthermore, his recommendations for medicines and associated formulas for me to take have dramatically reduced my specific problems. I would like to remind people that doctors are people. They can only do their best for you if you help them by sharing insights into your medical problem/s, listing the medicines and supplements you take, and FOLLOWING their advice. Thank you Dr. Sacks.

Dr. Sacks was by far the most comforting, knowledgeable, and helpful doctor I have ever been to. He explained everything he was doing, what everything meant that he was recording, and made me feel safe and in good hands. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the NYC area looking for an ENT .

I love this MAN!!! Dr Sacks is really really wonderful. If you are in NYC and need an ENT he is AMAZING. Over the years I was his patient I had to have 3 surgeries. His attention to detail and his caring bedside manner are UNMATCHED!!! He even came in and took out my IV himself so that I could be released quickly. I adore him and miss him since moving away from NYC.

I and several members of my family have seen Dr. Sacks for many years. He is kind, knowlegable and helpful. From my experience, he is an unsually good physician. I must admit that sometimes there is a wait to see him, but as impatient as I am, I think he is worth it.
