Great visit. I came in because of pain in my upper back/neck. Dr. Sahler was friendly and concerned and spent time asking me questions about my sports activity and lifestyle. After having me x-rayed, he was really great about showing me the x-rays on his laptop and clearly walking me through what the issue was (it was ligament-related in my neck…a sprain). It was also good that he showed me what was healthy + good about my spine too. We then talked about simple lifestyle changes. (5 Star Review on Healthgrades)
