Dr. Alan Sandberg, MD
I knew at an early age that medicine was the perfect blend of science and human interaction that I needed for a meaningful and challenging career. Gastroenterology, above all other fields in medicine, presents the greatest diversity of both disease and chance for healing. The vast spectrum of illness in gastroenterology presents a never-ending challenge – and opportunity to both learn as a clinician and heal as a physician.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sandberg "The technical skills I've acquired performing colonoscopy and endoscopy for over 30 years is just one of the many skills required for comprehensive patient care. The greatest satisfaction I get as a physician is taking the time to know my patients as people. Behind every patient is a person – with real fears and anxieties, families, jobs and multiple other facets of their lives. Without knowing the person, you cannot fully heal the patient. I want each of my patients to feel that I treated them as I would want my family and loved ones to be treated."

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.
