    Patient, trusting, sensitive, understanding, caring, considerate. Dr Sandhu never rushes, takes time to explain details making certain I understand, makes me feel important & secure in my decisions. He is unpretentious. He is cautious, his patients are his first priority. He is not egotistical. His staff is impeccable, efficient, knowledgeable, sympathetic & compassionate. Calls are answered by real people. His PA, Tiffany Guglielmelli is wonderful. Staff have even given me their personal cell #

    Dr. Sandhu is not only an incredible surgeon, but he is a humble man who does not talk down to his patients. Went to see him for a second opinion on a planned lumbar multi-level disc replacement or fusion. I also had a cervical spine MRI. He told me he would only need an anterior cut, and recommended the ACDF, saying that may help the symptoms frommy lower spine . He was 100% correct. PA, Tiffany and Nurse Coordinator Joy were also very helpul and compassionate. A+ to this team!!
