Richmond, VA |
Traveled from Virginia to Calvert Memorial Hospital in Maryland. I got there in plenty of time in advance of my appointment. I had scheduled this appointment four months prior and was looking forward to getting some answers. I sat in the packed waiting room for 45 minutes passed my scheduled appointment. Then I was directed to an exam room were I waited another 20 minutes. Sandhu finally comes in but it's clear he had not looked over any of my medical forms or reports I completed. He did have my

Went to multiple office locations and felt rushed after hours of waiting. This doctor is not a good communicator and after TWO failed surgeries - WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

Dr.sandhu takes time with his patients. He really cares
in Washington, DC |
Dr. Sandhu, was by far the most professional Provider I have experienced. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Sandhu provided us with feedback, and ensured I was taken care of. The surgery itself was extremely successful, and I was home that same day.
Herndon, VA |
Dr. Sandhu is an expert spine surgeon. Plus he has an amazing bedside manner, I could hardly walk when I went to see him. Now I am out of leg pain and mobile again. , I had issues with the staff, which was frustrating. End result worth it. You might have to wait months to schedule as I did. Also having some other issues now, with upper back so things aren't perfect, but grateful to Dr. Sandhu. I knew he was my dr. from the first appointment.
Midlothian, VA |
Dr. Sandy is amazing. He found out what was wrong when no one else could. He fixed it and he has improved my life drastically. He is a truly an amazing doctor.
in Bethesda, MD |
Dr. Sandhu is a very skilled Neurosurgeon. I will recommend anyone with spinal issues to consult him.
Falls Church, VA |
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!!
