Ratings for Dr. Lisa J. Sarber
Dr Saber has been my primary care doctor for years. When she and Dr Mussey left Pratt Medical, I was unable to follow them because of my insurance. I tried four doctors during the time she was in King George and was not happy with any of them. When she moved back to Fredericksburg, I changed insurance providers so I could go back to her. She has taken care of all my medical issues and has referred me to the best specialists. I recommend her to all my friends and they are happy with her as well.
Dr. Sarber is always helpful. She does not give up until she has found the problem or gets you to a specialist that can help. She doesn't send you to "Any" specialist either. She wants the best for her patients. Her staff are excellent. Very caring. My husband and I are so lucky to have her as our "family" physician.
Dr.Sarber is the closest thing there is to an "old-fashioned" doctor that lovingly treats patients as family. I can confidently say there is NO better doctor ANYWHERE. The same staff have been with her since the beginning and that alone says alot. They are all the very BEST. I've never gotten anything but prompt, courteous, knowledgable care.
I was referred to Dr. Sarber by my OB/GYN for follow-up on out-of-range thyroid tests. I cannot believe how many other reviewers say she listens. She did not listen to me at all. In fact, she would not even let me finish my sentence and she incorrectly assumed what I was going to say. She dismissed the thyroid issue, which was in fact an issue diagnosed by another doctor a year later. She belittled my concerns and talked down to me. I think she is both a horrible person and a horrible doctor. I don't understand how she could be so good to other patients except that she makes snap judgments and decided she didn't want me for a patient. If so, she succeeded.
Dr. Sarber is the most thorough, professional, and accurate doctor I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She was able to pinpoint the cause of a difficulty I had battled for over 20 years, sent me to the appropriate specialist, and the treatment literally changed my quality of life. Because she had really LISTENED when I went in (& was her patient for several yrs), she knew me. She said that we would order some tests, and if these didn't find the problem, we would do more and WOULD out what the cause was. She was committed, and she--unlike numerous drs before her--found it. When she left Pratt, her practice did not accept my insurance, so I've had to find another--but she is priceless. Even my mother--an R.N. with master's & partway through her Ph.D, as well as a terrible patient who distrusts most doctors, loved and trusted Lisa Sarber. Wish she'd take Optimum Choice, because I'd be back in a heartbeat. God bless her!
I was surprised to read reviews saying Dr. Sarber needed to slow down or they were late. I have gone to Dr. Sarber for over 10 years (stayed with her during her split with Pratt), etc. Once she left the clinic, I NEVER had the long waits I used to and really felt she was very professional. She gets to the point, listens, and really goes out of the way to accomodate so many changes I have seen in medical coverage! Thanks!
