Specialties

Dr. Kenneth Sauer has the following 3 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Hospice and Palliative Medicine

    Hospice care & Palliative medicine specialists focus their practice on pain management, symptom relief and qualify-of-life treatments to relieve the suffering of terminally ill patients. These doctors have specialized expertise in the treatment of patients with serious illnesses, advanced diseases and conditions resulting from catastrophic injury. Though often they work within hospice settings, they prevent and alleviate suffering appropriate at any age and stage of disease and can work alongside practitioners providing curative treatments.
    Hospice care & Palliative medicine focuses on depression, pain, fatigue, constipation, nausea, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping, among other conditions. They also alleviate psychosocial distress and other stressors that accompany terminal illnesses. They are skilled in guiding families through legal and ethical decision-making in end-of-life care and can address spiritual issues at these times. By coordinating care across settings by improving communication among providers, they improve access to information for families so that they understand the patient's condition and treatment options.

Do not hire this doctor!!!

Dr Sauer treated my father in hospice care. He was never available to meet with our family and he had no office or nurse to reach him when my dad reached a pinnacle of pain. I watched my father sufffer in massive pain. I had to stay in the room with my father 24 x 7 to meet his needs. The nursing staff was uncaring and rude. Particularly, the night crew. I was told by the hospice nurses they would recommend uping my dads pain meds when the doctor next came in. This was a Saturday night. My father had to lay in the bed and tremendously suffer because no one was allowed to bother Dr. Sauer after hours.

Dr. Sauer was very kind to my Dad at the Hospice In-patient Care. He took time to talk with family to keep us up-to-date with Dad's condition. In this setting, he understood our only concern was in Dad's comfort and help ensure that Dad's was at peace when he died.

This is the best physician whom I have encountered in a long time. He really listened to my mother and myself and paid attention to my mother as a person, not just a sick person. He took copius notes and made sure that he was complete. I was worried about a younger physician caring for my loved one, but if this is how younger physicians are being trained, then we might be heading in the right direction.
