Dr.Sandberg is compassionate & smart.He really stepped up to take care of my daughter who has complex medical needs with no easy answers.His care for her and his expertise are truly a blessing.Remember complex GI issues ,in many cases ,have no simple answers & limited medical /medicine solutions.When a doctor goes out of his way to try ,explain & care one should be grateful and we are .Thank you Dr .Sanberg

In my opinion, Dr. Sandberg saved my daughter's life. He came in and cleaned up a life-threatening situation caused by another doctor's incompetence when other doctors were reticent to become involved. Our daughter has a rare genetic disorder with a low survival rate and she most likely would not be alive today except for Dr. Sandberg.
