Patient Comments (3)

I came in to the office primarily for weight loss. With my family history Dr. Sand recommends a colonoscopy in which he found precancerous polyps and removed them. He didn't discover the reason for my weight loss, so he ordered a CT Scan which a cancerous tumor was discovered in my left kidney. Dr. Sand listened to me and order the right tests to diagnose my problem. I thank him for listening and saving my life. Michael M.

BEWARE IF YOU HAVE KIDS OR WANT TO BE TREATED WITH RESPECT DO NOT GO TO THIS OFFICE! Office staff is rude and treats patients with very little disrespect esp if you have children with you!! They will also lie to other doctors about you if you complain!
