I have been a patient of Dr. Sanchez since 1992. There is no one like him. He has time for his patients. Who cares if you have to wait in the waiting area a little while when you know he will take time with you. It is not like in and out the door in 2 minutes after sitting for an hour.

I’ve been trying to make an appointment with Dr Sanchez for over a month. I’m a long time established patient of Dr Sanchez. Well over 10 years. I’ve called the number 3 times to make an appointment and have yet to be called back. I’ve gone to the office to make an appt in person. They find me in database and tell me (even though I’m an established patient) I have to have my pcp refer me to him and the paperwork needs to contain up to date blood work. They will decide if I need an aapt.

My wife was recommended to see Dr. Sanchez, with stage 4 lung cancer, believe me there is no regret!! Dr Sanchez, has a great bedside manner, and is willing to spend the time to explain any questions and upcoming procedures. The treatment he recommended has worked amazingly, I believe that he is the BEST in the valley. This review may make it harder for us to get appointments, but if it helps others, let it be so. If your looking at this review, I pray to God, that you get the same result

I love the hugs when he greets me! I admire the respect he has with his staff and they for him. His listening skill is always displayed as well as taking whatever time it takes to answer all questions. He also ask questions and clarifies the blood results: the good bad and ugly!
