I recently moved to California from Toronto, where I had been cared by a family physician for many many years. Dr. Saracheck has always treated me with compassion, kindness, and respect. He is an extraordinary health care provider. He listens patiently and displays genuine concerns to address all of my questions relating to my health. I feel that I am in the very best care as his patient. He is truly one in a billion. I would like to add that the reception team and the MA team are very kind, supportive, and gracious. I am very fortunate to be in the care of Dr. Saracheck and his health care team.Providence Patient
