Patient Comments (2)
in Flint, MI |
I have been with RVO since 1993. Dr. Sandman is excellent. The staff at RVO is excellent. Last year and this year I had total knee replacements. Very tough surgery and recovery. Dr. Sandman made this life altering process so much better. I am up and moving 6 weeks post surgery. I did not have issues like others that did not go to RVO. I cannot say enough about their care and skill. Lisa, Dr. Sandman's nurse, is wonderful, kind and has a great sense of humor. I entrusted her for knee injections.

I would highly recommend Dr. Sandman to any patient. He is very through in his explanation of the procedures that he will be doing prior and during surgery. He was and is very nice to speak to about post surgery. Also, his nurse Lisa is fantastic.
Our staff and physician's strive to provide the best possible diagnosis and care through orthopedic expertise and our personal investment in you. We are so glad you were able to witness our dedication to providing the "RVO Experience", and are willing to share your positive opinion with others.
