About Me

Biography

"As a surgeon, I enjoy and take pride in solving complex problems and finding the best ways to fix them. Diseases of the colon and rectum, in particular, are often embarrassing or difficult to talk about. As a specialist I take joy in being able to comfort patients and work through these problems with them and their family members so they can return to enjoying their lives."

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!
