Dr. Sandman was my second opinion. When I got to Dr. Sandman’s office, it was a night and day difference. He was very calm, reassuring, and answered all of my questions very thoroughly. When he walked into the room with my x-rays he said my hips were so bad that he could not even determine my age, just by looking at the x-rays. That’s how far gone both sides were. He even said I could spend the night if I didn’t feel comfortable with an outpatient procedure. This put me at ease. My left hip was replaced within an hour of surgery. I asked Dr. Sandman how the surgery went, and him being a very confident surgeon he said there’s no issues and he does not anticipate any issues with my hips in the future. His staff was also very helpful. I called his nurse multiple times with clarifying questions and she called back every time with answers. The PA Christina also was very nice and helped answered my questions. She did a great job administering my shots. I am very happy with my new hip.

I had a left total knee replacement done on August 30 of 2021. At 6 weeks post op I am doing great. My surgery was outpatient and I was home mid afternoon. I was prepared for what to expect and had all the necessary supplies for my recovery. Follow up with the office has been great. Highly recommend Dr. Sandman and his staff.

He is a very skilled Dr. He listens, than very respectfully, works to help you understand your problem and options. I have complete trust in his solutions and work. Many times he was there caring as I faced many problems, emotionally, mentally and physically. He is there for you to see you get to a healthier you. He is very skilled in what he does. He is very patient and empathetic. I believe I could not have made it to walking again after my head on car accident that crushed and shattered my legs if it weren’t for him. You have to have trust in your Dr so you can work on your mental and emotional challenges that some of our injuries leave you with. And let’s remember to prayer and support our medical teams because they too could Benefit from kindness and patience from us especially as they deal with COVID-19 demands along with everything else. I highly recommend Dr Geffory Sandman! He is a blessing to me in all my challenges I endure.

Dr Sandman sent me to physical therapy with a shoulder that was broken in three places. I complained that my shoulder was getting worse. He left the room and came back staring and silent. I left the office, got a second opinion and had to have major surgery, because the new Doctor couldn't fix it through arthroscopic surgery. Wouldn't recommend.

Without any reservations, I would recommend Doctor Sandman. During my last visit on 5/11/21 he spent a great deal of time going over my X-rays. His bedside manner was like no other doctor I have dealt with over the last years. I do not think you could find another specialist like him in West Michigan. I would put my life in his care, and I would recommend anyone else to do the same.

I was taken by ambulance to Saint Mary's ER after a fall from a ladder. My right ankle was severely injured along with a broken arm and tailbone. Doctor Sandman preformed the surgery to rebuild my ankle and stabilize the broken arm. He did a fantastic job with the surgery and follow up. I would highly recommend him.

I could not be happier with Dr Sandman. I had both knees replaced last November and am finally able to walk again without excruciating pain. Dr Sandman also replaced my hip 2 days ago. While I’m in a lot of pain now, I have no doubt this too shall pass. He is so understanding, patient, and his staff is so kind and caring. I’ll never go anywhere else! Thank You RVO and Dr. Sandman, the miracle worker as I call him.
