Dr. Tamer N Sargios has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Ineffective and Condescending

My son has had numerous symptoms for 8+ months and lost 30 lbs. Several doctors, including Sargios, agreed that it wasn't IBS and my son underwent numerous tests. After a colonoscopy and endoscopy, Sargios overstated what he found. Then during our follow up visit he said he's not sure what's wrong so we'll just call it IBS and treat it as IBS...after he had already said that's not what it is. Nor do my son's symptoms match IBS. When I asked what's causing the severe nausea, he said "brain cancer" and then went on to say that it was just an example and many things can cause that. What a horribly insensitive and terrifying thing to say to my son and me. When the answer wasn't easily found, he just gave up. My son is only 21 and not willing to spend any more time not being able to function normally. In each of our visits, Sargios was condescending, arrogant, and ineffective. He also got very upset when we told him that we had consulted another doctor. Aren't 2nd opinions encouraged? Especially in cases that don't have a ready answer? His ego is far too big and his sensitivity is far too little.

Bad Experience

Dr.Sergios and his main nurse didn't make me feel comfortable after I infomed him that I had a total knee replacement and my orthopedic surgent recommended I take antibiotic before any procedure, Dr.Sergios,Felt that it was not necessary even try too convinced and fax paperwork to my orthopedic who disagreed with him and said to him my patient is not to have any procedure without antibiotic.So I Cancelled because Dr.Sergios went as far as to try to prove he was Right even though he is not a orthopedic surgeon....Makes you think why would a Doctor try to go as far as to prove another Doctor wrong.... eagle trip and not very friendly.
