This was a first time visit. My Austin doctor referred me to Dr. Sanchez. Dr. Sanchez is in Dallas and I live in Ft. Worth but I was very satisfied and will stay with Dr. Sanchez.

Dr. Sanchez, his PA Melanie & the rest of his staff are very professional & compassionate. My 89 year old mother & I went in for an appointment to see if mom was a candidate for an ablation & a pacemaker insertion. Dr. Sanchez & Melanie came in to examine my mom & discuss with us the possible procedures Dr. Sanchez could perform to help her with her A-Fib. Both Dr. Sanchez & Melanie did not act at all rushed. In fact, Dr. S sat down near my mom & spent a lot of time explaining everything & answering each question, making sure we understood. He gave us the options of procedures that could help her. He even offered to have a conference call with my siblings to make sure that we understood the options. risks & the recovery time. They worked with us to schedule the surgical procedures; mom is now feeling great--it's been 3 weeks since the ablation & pacemaker insertion. Dr. S is a renowned expert in this field. People come from all over to have procedures performed by him.

We met Dr Sanchez shortly before an emergency procedure he performed on my 91 year old mother. He explained in very understandable terms exactly what would happen, the risks, and expected outcome. After the procedure he personally followed up with multiple hospital visits. We were also in close contact with his very capable PA. On the follow up visit to his office, the entire staff was very professional and helpful. While many practices today seem to be in a hurry, this one did not. All questions were answered and reassurances given in a manner that made her feel like she was their most important patient. And when you call the office, the phone is answered by a real person!

He spent time & knowledge at your pace. Was very intent on hearing issues from the patient perspective. Then proceeded to discuss each & every detail with you. He recommends the conservative route before any other. I highly recommend Dr Sanchez.

I would give Dr. Sanchez 10 stars if I could! I have been struggling with the treatment of my afib symptoms for about 5 years. My medication was causing me to feel unable to do my normal activities. I was feeling down and discouraged. And THEN I found Dr Sanchez! He was so thorough when he explained his outline for treatment options and I felt that he knew how to treat my condition so that I could enjoy life again. I highly recommend Dr Sanchez to anyone who needs help with Arrhythmia. He listens, gives information, and is an expert in his field. He's also kind to patiently answer my questions. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. I am enjoying so many activities now that I had been unable to do before. It's wonderful to find a doctor with all of his good qualities.

Prior to my first visit with Dr. Sanchez, I had gone back into afib 10 days before. I had received several cardio versions, some that lasted several months to years, and some that lasted just days. After discussing everything with him, he was very energetic about ablation, and recommended the procedure as soon as possible. Within four days, the outpatient operation was done by Dr. Sanchez, and done successfully. He was extremely professional and empathetic about all my needs and circumstances. I have never met with the cardiologist or a doctor that handled everything with such enthusiasm and professionalism as Dr. Sanchez.

Went for an Ablation. The doctor and staff were excellent. He explained everything in detail, he and his staff were very friendly and professional. The surgery went without a problem. I was in and out the same day with no issues.

I've had some good Doctors in the past but none can hold a candle to Dr. Sanchez. I hope I never need his specialty again but if I do I will not even think about seeing anyone else. He is kind, patient and very smart. He explains everything in a way that a non-medical person can easily understand it. The best.

There isn’t enough space here to write all the good about Dr Sanchez. 1) Appointments are not rushed. He spends all the time you need to talk. He will give you as much info as you desire 2) he’s on the cutting edge of atrial fibrillation research and technique. 3) he’s conservative in his approach 4) he’s highly respected by his peers If you are considering ablation, this is the guy to do it. He did my second after a failed first.
