Our first visit with Dr. Sandberg was yesterday. Very knowledgable and thorough with examination. His beside manner is amazing. Such a breath of fresh air from the usual doctor visits which are alwasy rushed. He took his time to explain everything and made sure we understood. Very pleased with office staff as well. He's an excellent doctor!!

What can I say... They broke the mold when they made Dr. Sandberg. It's unfortunate he doesn't do it all. God bless him and may he be blessed with another 100 years ahead of him. Words can't express how lucky we were to find him on zocdoc.
