Don't waste your time! I've scheduled numerous appointments with this office for different reasons over the years and was never properly diagnosed. All my problems were treated as if I were blowing things out of proportion. Alot of time and money wasted. Save yourself, look elsewhere.

Beware! Dr. Sands is the worst doctor ever. Her practice has really gone downhill. During a recent move, she went missing and we could not access her for our test results. Once I did speak with her there was no apology for abandoning her patients. She has gone missing and either no showed or shown up late for my friend's appointments as well, again with no apology. You will not get quality care with this doctor and she will make you schedule countless follow up appointments unnecessarily.

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.
