Very happy with the results of his surgery.
in Washington, DC |
The staff is rude, discerttious, and shows no regard for patient health. Scheduling is terrible and you cannot set your appointment- they call you, weeks later. By far the most disrespectful and incompetent medical staff, because of them I refuse to see the doctor. None of them care about you, just a number.
in White Plains, Waldorf, MD |
Dr. Sandhu was not only a great doctor of Neurosurgery but a very likable Doctor at all my visits and at my bed side. The surgery he did on me was excellent and I would go back to him for any future problems.
in Severna Park, MD |
Patient, trusting, sensitive, understanding, caring, considerate. Dr Sandhu never rushes, takes time to explain details making certain I understand, makes me feel important & secure in my decisions. He is unpretentious. He is cautious, his patients are his first priority. He is not egotistical. His staff is impeccable, efficient, knowledgeable, sympathetic & compassionate. Calls are answered by real people. His PA, Tiffany Guglielmelli is wonderful. Staff have even given me their personal cell #
in Stelring, VA |
Dr. Sandhu is not only an incredible surgeon, but he is a humble man who does not talk down to his patients. Went to see him for a second opinion on a planned lumbar multi-level disc replacement or fusion. I also had a cervical spine MRI. He told me he would only need an anterior cut, and recommended the ACDF, saying that may help the symptoms frommy lower spine . He was 100% correct. PA, Tiffany and Nurse Coordinator Joy were also very helpul and compassionate. A+ to this team!!
