I was not looking forward to an appointment with this doctor. I've seen many neurologist before And didn't want to have to go through the whole history and everything else. From the moment Dr. Sawyer walked into the office we were laughing and talking and couldn't you that way until the very last minute that he walked out the door. Even as we were talking about stuff not related to my health issues he was attentive to what was going on with me and made comments regarding certain aspects of my health history that we hadn't talked about yet.. I was surprised that he had observe those issues and was very impressed. Before I left Dr. Sawyer was able to set up some referrals to a couple of other doctors so we can get some answers to the questions I came in with. I enter the office for the appointment concern for what was gonna happen and how it was going to come out and I left very satisfied and very happy that I met with Dr. Sawyer I look forward to meeting with him again

Dr. Sawyer took the time to go back to the original injury and follow the pain & diagnosis. He encouraged me to continue with my exercise and self care routine; which may not work for others, but Is apparently keeping me from a wheelchair. He was personable, but straight forward. I appreciate him for not just looking at me and asking "what can I do for you?
