June 25, 2020 12:54 PM

nurse was not friendly or engaging in any type of conversation. at the end she said come back in 3 months & I stated that Dr said one month & she ignorantly stated NO! 3 months and she walked away. didn't even say bye, have a nice day or anything! So when I emailed dr he said 1 month for a return visit.

Easy to talk to him.

March 14, 2020 8:56 AM

Dr. Sarcu is a great doctor, he is caring and concerned about my son's health.The reason my son's doctors do not ask my son's physical activities is because they know that he very active and that he enjoys running.

September 19, 2019 7:00 PM

This visit on Sept. 5, 2019 w/dr. was very upsetting to me. I have seen him several times & he was very kind & polite dealing w/my ear problems. However, on Sept. 5, he was very rude & annoyed that I came in & said I should see Dr. X who won my dermatologist! That upset me an my care are still plugged up & annoy me w/the wax... which he said was very minimal! That maybe true, but my ears are no where near normal feeling to me, as I said, that day I was very upset with dr. behavior & comments toward my problem! In his defense, previously he was very patient & kind to me! It may have been a bad day for him!!

September 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sarcu is very professional and personable. Easy to communicate with and understand him.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

It was a quick visit in and out. didn't take long to be waited on everything went just as I expected it to be always on time when ever I visit the clinic I really don't have no complaints at all thanks I was able to get a appointment the next day .

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

Great experience

September 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sarcu fit me in to his schedule to be seen. I appreciated that greatly. He is very kind to do this. I have had a history of getting very bad sinus infections that don't clear up quickly. I am grateful for his help, as well as Dr. X.

August 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sarcu was very patient and understanding with my father. Just weeks ago he lost his wife (my mother) and Dr. Sarcu and his staff were extremely sympathetic. The nurses where my father lives commented several times about how good his incision looked. My father said, "He seems like a good guy." My father isn't impressed easily.

August 19, 2019 7:00 PM


August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Sarcu is always very patient, we discuss all the pros and cons of what the next step can/should be and how best to proceed.

Good experience, no further visits required.

November 27, 2018 6:00 PM

November 15, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Sarcu is very straight forward & thorough in his assessments. He is always been very respectful.

November 12, 2018 6:00 PM

I don't think He has the necessary confidence or knowledge to take care of my problem.

October 29, 2018 7:00 PM

October 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. was very nice and did his job very well.

September 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Excellent surgeon who goes beyond his own field to serve my physical needs. Actually, discovered CA quite accidentally while overseeing need in his field. Now I am CA free, thanks to him.

September 10, 2018 7:00 PM

Provider appeared absolutely bored , disinterested and extremely anxious to end appt , quickest md appt I have ever had

Very good love Dr. Sarcu - Knowledgeable, kind, understanding.

July 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Overall OK, but spent a lot of time in the exam room waiting for the doctor.

July 9, 2018 7:00 PM

2 non medical people came into the examining room with the Dr and assistant. The Dr said these are the scribes but didn't ask if it was OK that they were there and recording the appt on the laptop. How do I know that they will keep my information private? They did not seem professional, I was reluctant to talk about some issues with them present.

July 9, 2018 7:00 PM

the doctor was very thorough and compassionate. he answered all of my questions and was very knowledgeable. he was professional at all times and seemed very genuine.

May 12, 2018 7:00 PM

excellent results from surgery

May 11, 2018 7:00 PM

He did not listen to why I was there. It was a waste of my copay and my time. There were additional people in the room (training or something) and they talked more to each other than to me. I wanted to talk about getting off or switching my medication (one of the reasons I was there) but that was never addressed. I will not go to this provider again.

May 10, 2018 7:00 PM

Went very well - nice provider.

April 26, 2018 7:00 PM

I saw him twice. First to consult and second.to habe the procedure dine. Both times he.and the team were great.

April 23, 2018 7:00 PM

I had a previous appointment scheduled the week before only to arrive in the parking lot to be told he was running about an hour behind schedule and they would need to reschedule my appointment. That was very nice of them to call me but disappointing I drove all the way there to receive this news.

March 26, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr was kind, listened and answered all of my questions. Very thorough explaining things before and after my daughter's surgery!

March 24, 2018 7:00 PM

Excellent patient rapport.

Very positive experience. Everyone was very courteous & helpful and cheerful!

March 7, 2018 6:00 PM

Very good.

March 7, 2018 6:00 PM

I was very impressed with Dr. Sarcu's knowledge/assessment of my problem (vertigo). He gave me home therapy and I was so much better in a few days. I'm so happy he fit me in and treated me well!

February 28, 2018 6:00 PM

I had surgery on 1/29/18 - Dr. Sarcu & team were very professional and explained all to me.
