I have never had a negative experience with either Dr. Paisley or Dr. Sanyer during any of our interactions in all the years I have known them. And that's a lot of years!!

October 02, 2014

Dr. Sunyar really cared for the wellness of the patient. He was genuine and also communicated with Dr. Czykowski very well and really giving great care to have the patient get the necessary diagnosis for the patient's health prognosis. Both doctors and also the other ones whom we had met that works at the University of Utah since May, 2014 are great doctors, assistants and staff members. We really appreciate you helping the patient get the right care he needed so much so that he can get back to be well again. Our family is really looking forward to get our son back to where he can function and be in charge of himself again.

We LOVE Dr Sanyer. This was our son's first visit with him, as our son (age 13) wanted to get a male doctor (his pediatrician was a female). Dr Sanyer engaged with him as an adult and made the visit very comfortable. He excused us as parents to talk 1:1 with our son and we were very comfortable with that.

August 26, 2014

very good

July 25, 2014

He was obviously rushed to leave my room and go onto the next one. He was answering questions as he was walking to the door and going through the door. Then forgot to get a letter requested during the visit-so I had to send a message on my chart and it is now being mailed to my home.

June 30, 2014

I would like to sing the praises of Dr. Osman Sanyer, who went out of his way to educate and include me in the treatment of a disease. His genuine concern for his patients resulted in a radical improvement in my day to day life. He has been my PCP for many years and I found that his compassion and dedication make him the best care provider I have ever had. I would love to nominate him for some sort of award for exemplary care if such a thing exists.

June 23, 2014

Dr. Sanyar was fantastic. He examined me thoroughly after asking pertinent questions, didn't dumb anything down, and showed a real intuition to my particular situation. In my case, we decided antibiotics were needed (though my natural inclination is to let things ride their course), and I felt better in a day and back to normal in a few days. In addition, he just seems like a nice, caring person, and he was a pleasure to see.

Dr. Sanyer is great. Knowledgeable, articulate and engaged.

Dr. Sanyer was very thorough in both listening and explaining! I felt very confident in his discernment of my condition and what was required. Three days later, I am so much better!

February 14, 2014

Dr. Sanyer was terrific. I live in New York and he saw me as a courtesy while I'm here in Salt Lake City. I would love it if he could be my doctor in New York as well. Could you split him in two please? :-)

February 09, 2014

Dr Sanyer is such a wonderful, attentive and caring physician. we are so lucky to have him as our family doctor.

February 09, 2014

Osman Sanyer has always been outstanding in these areas, and I have recommended him many times over the years.

February 03, 2014

Dr. Sanyer was excellent. He went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to explaining what he believed my issue was (and he was right) and even took the time to show me exactly how to administer the solutions he gave me as well as explain the anatomy behind my issue so I knew exactly what was going on. I would recommend Dr. Sanyer to anyone who asks.

January 17, 2014

already told people that I really liked the doctor and if they didn't have a primary they should consider him. I like my normal primary too so I probably won't switch but I did consider it.

January 12, 2014

I an grateful for the swiftness and quality of care taken for me on that day.

Dr. Sanyer is the best doctor I have worked with--and I can say that after only one visit. My experiences with Dr. Derek Muse and Dr. Hugo Rodier have been less than adequate.

March 06, 2013

Dr Sanyer has always been excellent is his care. He focuses on you, explains your condition, what causes there are for it and discusses treatment options.

February 11, 2013

Dr. Sanyer is the best primary physician I have ever had. He is completely briefed on my medical history, my family situation as it impacts my medical issues, and the complexities of my medical status. He comprehends quickly my questions/problems, and explains his recommendations fully and well. Dr. Sanyer is a caring physician, and this comes shining through in how he responds to my questions and concerns -- most unusual in my experience. In addition, he is very competent and quick to grasp the essence of my concerns. My husband and I have recommended Dr. Sanyer and the Madsen Clinic to many friends and relatives.

January 29, 2013

Dr. Sanyer has always been great to work with. He explains what is happening instead of just telling you what is wrong. He explains the medications and what they should do. He also encourages you to follow up with him rather than just sending you home. In the past I have recommended him to others.

January 28, 2013

I LOVE the whiteboards in the room. Dr. Sanyer took the time to actually draw a diagram of the relevant organs and explain what was happening. He made me feel like he had all the time in the world to spend with me, and he was so friendly and attentive. My new favorite doctor.

Oz Sanyer is clearly among the most capable care providers I have enjoyed the privilege of having in my life. He exhibits sincere interest and concern, is unusually thorough in his evaluations and explanations, and conveys the compentence that compounds his overall effectiveness. I am not competent to evaluate my own health, but I feel absolutely comfortable in entrusting Oz and his staff in both the appropriate level of evaluation and the most efficacious approach in treatment.

October 01, 2012

All good

July 05, 2012

April 13, 2012

Dr. Sanyer is very thorough and takes time to explain each issue, but his clinic schedule is too tight for him to address every health concern on each visit. I do value the long hours and hard work he puts in to improve his patients health.
