Dr. Bando is amazing. She takes her time to explain everything, patiently answers questions, and provides detailed notes about the visit. I have an illness that took 3 months to be diagnosed in Las Vegas, and it was wrong When I went to see Dr. Bando, she evaluated me, reached out to other doctors for referrals and I was correctly diagnosed in 2 weeks. I don't know what would have happened if Dr. Bando did not go above and beyond to get me the treatment I needed. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Bando is the best. I would, and did send my family member to her as well. She takes time to explain despite her very busy schedule, and always tries to make herself available. She is so thorough and I trust her completely.
