I have always been seen by Dr. Sater. He is extremely concerned about my over all health.He takes his time and go over every little detail concerning my MS diagnosis. My first visit with him was amazing. He went over my entire medical history to help me understand how & when I was first having symptoms of MS. He was able to tell me when it occurred! The treatment options were very little at the stage in which he was assigned to my case. He explained in detail all the risk & benefits. He followed up with me when I had issues due to other providers not understanding my diagnosis. Dr. Sater have been an excellent advocate for me & helped me to understand that you can live a productive life with MS with some adjustments! I would NOT BE LIVING IF IT WAS NOT FOR DR. SATER BEING IN MY LIFE. THIS DISEASE IS LIFE CHANGING & THE PAIN MAKES YOU WANT TO GIVE UP ON LIFE. DR. SATER MAKES SURE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITHOUT BEING OVER MEDICATED OR BEING AT RISK OF BECOMING ADDICTED TO ANY DRUG, WHY BECAUSE HE LISTEN TO ME, UNDERSTANDS & TOGETHER WE MADE THE BEST DECISION FOR MY ONGOING HEALTH. WITHOUT GOD & DR. SATER WEARING MY SHOES FOR 15 MINUTES OR HOWEVER LONG I NEED TO SEE HIM DURING MY APPOINTMENT, I WOULD NOT BE ALIVE!!!I LOVE MY DOCTOR SATER & THANK HIM FOR EVERYTHING HE HAVE DONE FOR ME!!
