I am very pleased with Dr. Sawyers. His level of experience and expertise comes through on every visit. I particularly like that he listens to and takes into consideration my thoughts about my illness and my intentions for certain home treatment options. Dr. Sawyers works with me and doesn't simply give me a lecture about dealing with my illness. It's a bit ironic to say but I enjoy my visits with Dr. Sawyers.

He was the first doctor and actually listened & Encourage me to find out family history. It turned out both my Grandmother & Father had CMT. A disease other doctors told me I didn't have because I didn't have a high arch. Dr. Sawyers told me you have to look at several factors not just one. There are different variants. He took his time asked me several questions and now although not something I want, at least I have a place to move forward from. God bless you Dr. Sawyers!
