Dr. Sarzier Was Able to Get Me Back to Doing What I Love

Employee Turned Patient Discovers Path to Healing

“Dr. Sarzier is a great guy, a great surgeon, has the best attitude and bedside manner. He did everything he could to keep me from having surgery until it became absolutely necessary.

I fish and I deer hunt. I couldn’t sit in a boat for long periods of time and I couldn’t climb a deer stand because of my back pain. I would recommend Dr. Sarzier 10 times over. He helped me get my life back and doing the things I love.”
