  • Nice Office

My experience with Dr Sashko was very poor. Every time I have seen him he seems to have one foot out the door like he is not there to listen or is not at all concerned with your heal care. He makes you come in every 3 months to get refills on your prescriptions and and when I brought up another concern he out right told me my 15 minutes were up and he was running behind. after seeing him for over a year and putting up with his bad manners, I have decided to never go back to him. I have never had a Dr that treated me like a number before , so it has been very disappointing. Also he spends all the time looking at the computer instead of looking at me and making some kind of contact with his patient. He is the worst Dr I have ever encountered. I will most likely change health care providers if this is the kind of Dr\'s they have on their plan.
