If I could give Dr. Sakla more than five stars, I would. He is the model for what a physician should be. In his presence, you aren't a number, but an individual treated with respect and compassion. He gives you his undivided attention and listens to understand your problem or concern. Dr. Sakla is warm, knowledgeable, and good at what he does. You can trust Dr. Sakla with your care.
