I've been seeing Dr. Sanduh for about 10yes now and I'm very happy with the care he has provided me. He listens to everything I say, from symptoms, to concerns and even simple conversations. I never feel rushed and my seizures have been controlled since I've started seeing him I'm very grateful for all the care he has provided me. I should never want to lose him as a provider.

Dr. Sandhu was exceptionally dismissive, suggesting that since I see a therapist, my pain must be psychosomatic. During the initial neurological exam, I suggested that I might be off balance as a result of the heel on my boot. He then acknowledged that I shouldn't have shoes on during this part of the exam and had me remove them but didn't repeat that portion of the exam. Ultimately, I had to see another neurologist in order to learn anything helpful about my health.

He was very knowledgable and thorough. Pleasant manner, gave us the bad news in a kind and gentle way. I was very impressed with the time he took with us and his kindness.

He is a horrible Dr.He doesn't care one bit about your health and even took me off meds without my egnolegment.I had seen him at unm and didn't like him and didn't snap over a decade till now.Oh yeah he was the jerk I had seen just one time at unm and switched Dr's after him.If you are sick he will let you die or put you in a bad situation and leave you stressed and depressed and beleave me he is a huge lier.After my next appointment I'm going to get a referral and find a real Dr not a quack.

Acts like he doesn't care about your concerns despite being told by 3 other doctors that I needed a neuro consult. The doctor I'd seen before had left the practice so I was stuck with Sandhu. I will not be going back.

Don't expect to be listened to. There's a schedule to keep with Dr. Sandhu, and he doesn't have time for your problem.
