He doesn't take care of backs and that's what I thought an orthopedic did,,, all bones. He also doesn't have/use an ultrasound for injections.

Nothing negative to report, My contact with Legacy was for an emergent situation. EVERYONE I encountered on staff was very friendly and efficient.

Computer access to my medical records was very easy to use. Receptionist was very positive and friendly. So was the doctor's assistant. Doctor was very knowledgeable and thorough. Payment for co-pay was super easy.

My visit went very well, every member of staff was courteous and very helpful in answering all my questions. The interview with the provider was excellent in providing information about my ailment. My only gripoe is that it would be a lot better if the imiging lab was in the same building as where the interview takes place, rather than having to go to a different building, especially when the condition of my complaint is so painful. Maybe this could be a thought to ponder on.

Felt a little judged for taking all the pain meds after surgery.

Dr. Sauer was very professional, and took the time to explain, not only what we were going to do that day, but what we might be facing in the future. He answered all my questions. The shot was almost painless.I had no complications and recovery was fine

Frustrated that this doctor could have just called me with my MRI results and told me that he was not able to help me. I had to pay my co-pay for him to tell me that he is not able to help me and referred me to another doctor. It was a total waste of time

Only good things to say - very glad my PCP referred me to Dr Sauer for my planned knee replacement. As an aside Dr Sauer did hip replacements for my brother a couple years back and he still raves about every aspect of his care thru the whole experience with Dr Sauer and your hospital.
