"I'm pain-free now after having excruciating lower back pain...

Several years ago, on a Sunday morning, I found myself at the ER seeking help for excruciating lower back pain which was later determined to be a bulging disc. The ER visit resulted in me being discharged with a prescription in hand for a narcotic that I could not physically tolerate. The next morning, in a desperate search for pain relief, I walked into Saks Wellness Center (without an appointment) and was welcomed by a friendly staff and immediately evaluated and treated by Dr. Saks. That morning, I left Saks Wellness Center confident that my pain would soon be relieved. After receiving several treatments that week (one of which was on a day that the office was closed but Dr. Saks made himself available), my pain, in fact, had greatly diminished, and within weeks, I was pain-free.

Over the years, I continued to see Dr. Saks, and now his associate, Dr. Figley. At times, I may experience some minor back pain, but in every instance, the treatment I receive from Dr. Saks and Dr. Figley has me walking out the door pain-free, and I am so grateful. Thank you Saks Wellness Center!"

"I had migraines all the time...

I’ve had them since I was a child. I had no energy and I was exhausted all the time. It was hard to do anything activity-wise. I had to take naps just to function, not just a little nap but a 3-hour nap. I had gone up to 200 lbs. I am 5’ 3.” Now I have no migraines, a few headaches, but that’s if I have sugar that I’m not supposed to have. I have lots of energy now. I don’t have to take naps; if I do they are short ones. I don’t have to leave functions to go home and take a nap anymore. I have lost 30 lbs since seeing Theresa at Saks Wellness Center."

"I had a hysterectomy about 3 months prior to coming to Dr. Saks...

It left me a wreck, both physically and emotionally. I felt trapped in my own body with barely enough energy to get off the couch. Five weeks later depression and anxiety started to set in. After 9 weeks I started taking an antidepressant, which helped, but was certainly no cure-all. After talking to an acquaintance about their experience and how Dr. Saks had helped them, I decided to give him a try. I started to notice a difference almost immediately.

After about 2 weeks the crying sessions and absolute sadness disappeared completely. The anxiety, something that I have dealt with a few times in the past was eased greatly. Now I can say I’m almost 100%. I started weaning off the medication a couple of weeks ago with no problems. A friend of mine has a sister who had a hysterectomy around the same time as me and is still struggling having also been put on antidepressants. I’m so happy to be feeling good again."

"I have had chronic hives for 2 ½ years, hives that covered my entire body...

They are extremely itchy, painful, and very swollen. I had them every day. Some were the size of dinner plates, my eyes would swell shut. I had gone to seven different doctors and I was taking 4 different antihistamines, three times a day. The only thing that would get rid of them was steroids, so you can imagine my hunger and weight gain. The hives would keep me up at night and would last all day long.

As of December 5, 2007, I have been coming to Saks for 4 weeks. I no longer take any antihistamines. My hives are gone except for a couple of days I got one or two, nothing major. I feel great. I have been sleeping through the night and my skin feels healthier. I have not been as worried about my health. I seem to have more energy. I have psoriasis and I am starting to see a change and it is disappearing. I feel the best I have felt in the last 2 ½ years."

"About a year ago it was discovered that I was anemic...

Headaches were the worst along with being so tired that I could hardly function. After six months of being treated by a medical doctor with prescription drugs, I did not get any better. The doctor then suggested iron infusions and referred me to a doctor that deals in that treatment. However, before trying such drastic measures I decided to try an alternative. At the time, we were in Florida and about to head back to Gaylord. So I spent considerable time on the internet exploring alternatives. I decided I needed to have an appointment as soon as arriving back in Gaylord, so again, went online and did a Google of doctors in Gaylord. I had always seen Saks Wellness Center but had no idea what it was. When that came up on my list I decided to call them, explain my problem, see what the wellness center actually does, and whether or not they could help. I was blown away by the response. I could come in for a consultation, explain my problem and see if the doctor can help. Being very skeptical, I decided I wanted to give this a try, thinking it was much better than infusion. Within a month or so, the headaches were totally gone and I started feeling better. I felt that only a blood test would give me proof. To my total amazement, he did help me, not only specifically with the anemia, which by the way is totally back in the correct range, but helped me with a couple of other minor problems. I am so glad that I found Dr. Saks and his clinic and will be forever grateful to him and his staff.”
