This is a long Review. However, I feel this is a MUST READ for anyone seeking a Neurosurical Professional. Doctor John Sarzier was my Neurosurgon in Cape Coral, Florida before he relocated to another State. I absolutely hated hearing he had moved when it was time, a couple of years later, for another surgery. He; along with his Cape Coral, Florida office, including some of the staff still working there to this day, were and still are absolutely wonderful. He ALWAYS went into full detail in describing what all was and is going on with me. AT NO TIME DID I EVER FEEL RUSHED OUT OF HIS OFFICE FOR THE NEXT PERSON!! Something totally absent here, at least in my opinion, the SW Florida region. With the exception of my PCP, and my Pain Management Doctor......referred by Dr. Sarzier when he was still at the office in Cape Coral, ALL SPECIALIST I VISIT, treat me more as a number than a person. That is something, again, I never felt with Dr. Sarzier. After 2 TOTALLY BOTCHED surgeries by A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT NEUROSURGON, FROM A DIFFERENT NEUROSURGICAL PRACTICE......he did absolutely everything in his power to give me the best quality of life possible, at the time. Unfortunately, my condition has worsened and again, unfortunately, Dr. Sarzier is no longer here in Cape Coral. I have to laugh because, with every MRI I had done, he would ask me to come look at them...I know he was joking but would tell me, " You've had so many, you can read these MRI's about as well as I can!" Again, I knew he was joking. I personally believe he was doing his best to keep me calm and not worry about everything happening with me. He WILL NOT do a Surgery if he feels as if either it will do me no good or more harm than good. My wife and I are planning on moving to the Brunswick, GA area or a nice, small town nearby. We had no idea Dr. Sarzier was in the area. However, after doing some medical research around Brunswick, I discovered he was in Hinesville, not too far away!! Needless to say........ Yes, we're sure there are a lot of really good Neurosurgeons in Georgia and South Carolina...the 2 areas we're considering, however, knowing he is in one of the area's, definitely makes us want to be anywhere within 30-45 minutes of his office. Also, we know if something should arise that a higher level of care Dr. Sarzier is unable to provide, I know and feel he will point me to the best of the best!! Do yourself a BIG FAVOR. Choose Dr. John Sarzier. You'll, at least I feel, will ALWAYS be treated more like an old friend or family rather than just another person walking into his office!! I MISS YOU DR. SARZIER!!! Rest assured, if you remember me, run and hide!!! We'll see you in a couple more years!! Keith Darling Cape Coral, FL

Visit was quick and to the point. Told me what my problem was and what he wanted to start with.

Dr Sarzier is an outstanding surgeon. His staff are friendly and professional. I highly recommend him for any spine or neck issues.

10 out of 10 would recommend.

Always trust my doctor as he knows whats going on. Thankful that he always does great job not with just me but with all his patients.

Very knowledgeable, professional staff. Doctor Sauer is forthright about your options and is attentive to his patients issues and concerns.

The entire staff was kind and friendly and knew what they needed to do.

I had a great experience with Dr. Sarzier and his team. 10 out of 10 would recommend to family, friends, and my patients.

Dr Sarzier is very professional and courteous. He performed my back surgery a few years ago and I had excellent results. One of the things I like most about him is he will do surgery as a last result, only after he has tried everything else. I highly recommend him and will continue to use him when it is necessary.

Dr. Sarzier’s wonderfully peaceful professional. When I saw him it was for a second cervical surgery. So, I was very anxious. He peacefully discussed the need to remove part of my past apparatus in my neck and described how he’d do his fusion. I felt very comfortable listening and talking to him. I saw him for my one year post-op appt. He listened, answered my questions and told me to contact his office if I had any new questions. The follow-up care was with his amazing PA Kerry Schuttlebottom. She was knowledgeable about my specific surgical procedure and made sure I understood what was done. She had a plan of recovery for me and listened to my concerns. His office staff is very polite and helpful.
