I had to wait quite a while. I did not gain the impression that the doctor was putting much thought or concern into how I could pursue solutions for my medical issue. I felt like I was being speedily processed and separated from my payment - rather than being consciously provided professional medical care.
Dr. Sasser and staff are great.
Dr. Sasser has always "met" all my expectations. He is excellent and I trust him!
Dr. Sasser is very genuine and kind
Everybody is nice and helpful.
All was well,I love this provider
My recent experience was great, also the Dr was awesome.
Dr Sasser is an excellent Orthopedic Doctor. Great bedside manner, always answers my questions. Did a wonderful job with my knee replacement.
Dr Sasser always answers my questions in a way I'm able to understand
Dr. Sasser is very kind and knowledgeable. Although he would get annoyed and short with us when we asked a question. He would answer it but it was noticable that it bothered him. In all other ways he was great. We are thankful for him and all he has done.
I was very happy with my results of my surgery. I was real pleased with Dr. Sasser and his staff. Yes they treated me very respectable and I will come back if I ever have to have any other kind of surgery.
I have known Dr. Sasser since he was a boy, and I respect him and trust him, his intelligence, his training, his judgement, etc.
Dr Sasser was very dismissive about my feeling & what I had to say it was my worst drs visit ever he really talked down to me.
DR. Sasser is a cosumate gentleman. Having know him since high school, he is the same kind, humble, respectful and compassionate man that I have always know him to be. He is an excellent practitioner and Glynn County is lucky to have him.
Exceptional provider accessible, knowledgeable and sharing
Dr. Sasser and his staff are professional, highly competent, caring, and pleasant.
Dr. Sasser was very responsive to my questions and explained my pending procedure very well. He listened to me and didn't seem to be in a hurry I appreciated his undivided attention.
Great doctor
I am very please
Dr. Sasser is a great physician! He is not only a skillful and experienced physician but also a compassionate and careful listener. I especially appreciate his upbeat attitude and demeanor.
Everyone from receptionist, to x ray, to nursing staff, to doctor, to check out staff was phenomenal!
Dr Sasser seemed like he was in a hurry and the OV felt rushed. Not very personable.
Dr Sasser is great & I get called back quickly but then I sit in exam room for what seems like forever
Very pleasant from receptionists, to Dr and check out staff!
I was satisfied with my surgery.
My provider Dr. Saser was very attentive. He explained what he saw on my x rays. He listened to my concerns and gave me advise and tips on what to do, he recommended to me the things not to do, to future injure or traumatize my shoulder. Professionalism at Its finest.
Very happy with the talk and service
This office visit was a 6-month check up after knee replacement surgery. Dr. Sasser did an excellent job on my knee and is always positive and cheerful.
The doctor took an xray of my left knee. This xray showed a loy of arthritis under my knee cap. My knee pain is to the left outside and goes down my leg. The doctor never addressed the real issue I was having. I felt like I was an imposition and he was in a hurry. I will not be back if at all possible.
Dr. Sasser explained my condition and made a follow up appointment with one of his associate for additional care.
I have to say, Dr. Sasser is a wonderful doctor. I am lucky to have him as my doctor.
The provider were right on point and described the things I needed to know
Same Dr. Sasser for a shoulder injury. Dr. Sasser was professional however he did not do a good job explaining what he thought the issue was. Dr. Sasser also ignored the fact that I'm in constant pain.
This was my visit with Dr Sassar. He was great. Smart, engaging, answered all my questions. I never felt rushed.
Dr. Sesser is very nice and cares about your problem and takes time to help you and talk to you. I like him.
I have total confidence in Dr Sasser.
The office was clearly too busy, the Dr clearly had a lot going on. I personally feel like this affected the time spent and care given. I waited and an hour past my appointment to be seen. And even then my time was very rushed with Dr. Sasser. Given more time and attention I would have been able to explain what was going on via my injury and training needs.
Dr Sasser is a very good and nice Physician.
This dr was rude and wouldn't listen to my descriptions of my ailments and pain issues. Very disrespectful of my hearing impairment.
My experience was simply great and I was thoroughly pleased with Dr. Sasser's recommendations. The medication he prescribed worked wonders
Everything went very well.
I was hurried through like an assembly line..he talked at me not to me. A very disheartening visit. I will be looking for another provider.
Great Dr
Completely satisfied
Very helpful and polite as usual. All of the employees I came in contact with this visit and other visits in the past have always been very nice and helpful!
Dr.Sasser was very knowledgeable about my injury. He took the time to answer all my questions, and explain the plan of action in healing my wrist. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
Dr. Sasser is warm, compassionate and patient in answering all my questions. I have been seeing him for 7 years with my knee issues. I am still recovering but feel completely comfortable and cared for by the wonderful team!!
The staff and doctor was very nice and answered all of my questions.
They were very courteous and professional. Very satisfied
Everything was good every visit
My only minor complaint is the long wait time in the waiting room, and also after I'm taken to the exam room
Always a pleasant experience
Didn't have to wait long to see dr and he sent me for X-rays in the same office. Glad I didn't have to go somewhere else for the X-ray
Thank you for your kindness
Dr. Sasser is the surgeon who has replaced both my hips and has done excellent work.

Doctor Sasser is a very good doctor - hi is demeanor changed towards me after surgery. Then, I realized he's am excellent doctor...once you lpass his Arrogance.
