Patient Comments (17)

Dr. Sanchez is personable, professional, and punctual. What more could a patient ask for? Her staff is also very efficient, both in scheduling and with respect to patient flow, so that it is a pleasure to be seen in her office. Never any waiting, and out in a snap! Oh, and also very gentle.

Dr Sanchez is an exceptional and caring person. She helped me through a difficult time. After 4 unsuccessful procedures elsewhere she was able to diagnose and operate to correct the problem. I am so grateful to her!
