    in Nashville, TN |
    I had typed lists of my regular meds with bottles for verification to my first and later appointments, and all my previous records sent immediately. She and her staff messed up the refills every time. There was always an excuse and something more they wanted that hadn't been communicated previously. They refused to correct an error on a refill she already gave me until I came in for more labs or another appt. Just needed her to fix HER error. Found a new doc!

    Dr. Sands is very thorough and takes the time to really listen to what's going on with her patients. She does not hesitate to order tests if she feels it's necessary to get to the bottom of your problem. She is very warm and caring. I highly recommend her and have sent other members of my family to her.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
