Love Dr. Sawyers. Dr. Sawyers is very respectful and personable towards my father. Although my father does not understand due to his Alzheimer's, Dr. Sawyers is still personable and treats him with respect and talks directly to him instead of to myself his daughter/caregiver. Dr. Sawyers is knowledgeable and takes the time to ensure my dad is taken care of and never feel rushed or we are just "another" patient. So happy I found Dr. Sawyers and he is my father's primary neurologist.
