Dr. Sanz performed a bowel resection on me in December of 2015. I was very pleased with the entire process. He was easy to talk to and answered all of my questions thoroughly in a professional manner. My surgery went well, as did my recuperation, and I have resumed all of my activities. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sanz to anyone who needed colon and rectal surgery.
