I had the extreme misfortune of having to deal with Dr. Sacks on my recent hospitalization at St. John’s. He is a pompous, self-righteous, arrogant windbag! My surgeon left me in pain for 32 hours. No one was helping me and no one prescribed the correct drugs for an exacerbated disc herniation in my neck which is documented in my medical records! Finally, somehow Dr. Sacks showed up in my room where I was in tears from the pain. He started to chastise and berate me! He said that if I did not stop crying and start “behaving” myself he would leave. Did I want his help or not? He then proceeded to interrogate me on my use of drugs and alcohol virtually accusing me of being a drug addict, an alcoholic and nuts. I was in 10/10 pain from a herniated disc in my neck! When I told him this he said that I was lying – if I was in 10/10 pain I would be passed out. (The definition of 10 pain on the pain scale is “the worst pain imaginable,” not pain that renders you unconscious)! He continued to berate me and said if I did not stop crying he would walk out. When one has been in uncontrollable pain for 32 hours with no relief and no one helping, crying seems a pretty reasonable response to me! He eventually prescribed a very mild muscle relaxant and nerve medication and left. This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had with a doctor. I would expect this type of behavior from Dr. Mengele or one of his sadistic protégés, but not from a doctor at St. John’s. After I was released from the hospital I went immediately to see my own spine/pain doctor who is now considering surgery on my neck – that is how bad the situation was and is. My doctor also prescribed me the RIGHT anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxant medications. I am still in pain but much less so. Dr. Sacks is a sadistic, haughty, conceited person. If you are in pain go somewhere else! He should have his license pulled.

I had very bad experience with Dr..Sacks. He is very greedy and doesn't care about patients at all. He only sees dollar signs. He spends no more than 5 minutes with me per visit. He was taking a long time with his shots,and didn't let me go to the physiotherapy. Because of that, I lost time. The only form of payment he accepts is cash. This is very odd for a doctor to do.
