Dr. Sanchez is one of the best doctors I've ever had. From the very beginning, he made me feel very comfortable, answered all my questions and really showed that he truly does care for the wellbeing of his patients. He does a thorough review of my results and explains in detail the progress and/or decline of health and already has a plan for the future. Trust that with him you are in excellent hands!

Completely Unprofessional. An appointment was scheduled two months ago - one week before the appointment they call and leave a voice mail advising me that the appintoment is canceled... and that someone would call next week to reschedule because they did NOT have a date when they called... NO ONE EVER CALLED. Frustrating to schedule an appointment, then cancel it, without any explanation... and never reschedule... how unprofessional !!

Dr. Schanchez has been my doctor for 20+ years now, he is a wonderful dr., VERY knowledgeable in his field! I've had no problems with him and his staff. Dr. has gone way above the call of duty in treating my kidney issues and follow ups. I HIGHLY recommend him and this office!

Friendly, courteous and easy to talk to.

Very irresponsible and unapproachable doctor. He left my husband to die. Ordered blood tests and never followed up even when potassium was extremely high. Never returned phone calls
