Health Tips, Stories, and News featuring Dr. Sauer

About Dr. Sauer

Philosophy of care

My approach is treating others as I would want to be treated. I am mindful of you as an individual and your overall patient experience. I want you to feel comfortable as we take the journey through your treatment and recovery. I take the doctor-patient relationship seriously; you will see me every visit.

Why I entered medicine

My love of science and helping others led me into the field. My father was a practicing orthopedic surgeon in the Lehigh Valley more than 40 years, and his honest selfless service to others also was an important influence in my career choice.

Community involvement

Being mindful of the needs of others less fortunate is important to me and my family. We are involved in various acts of service throughout the year and around the holidays. I have my children come up with service ideas near the holiday season to keep them grounded.

Personal interests

Outside of work I am overwhelmed by my three kids and their various activities throughout the year. While my wife and I are like passing ships in the night when driving all over the place for the kids, we enjoy taking time for ourselves to travel and watch movies.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
