Dr Sandau does not believe in following up on complications. They are below her.

Misdiagnosed my issues for months. Left me suffering when there was no need to. She doesn't bother to listen.

Dr Sandhu was horrible to my wife. She operated on her and then left her with many issues some of which caused her to be admitted to the emergency room and having to go through emergency surgery. She knew my wife was admitted to the hospital but would not come to help/visit. I would NOT recommend her at all.

My simple condition was misdiagnosed by the doctor twice and I was in extreme pain for a month longer than I necessarily had to be in between visits/follow up from the doctor. The doctor kept stating I had both chronic conditions CI or Endometriosis and would need steroids/surgery. After much prying/questions to the doctor (since things did not make sense) they admitted it was a simple infection. Out of all things prescribed only antibiotic made it go away/no pain.

Some patients seem to have had a good experience with Dr. Sandhu, but I most certainly did not. Maybe she treats her patients with respect that have a higher social status than I do. I am a single, lower middle class woman from Bridgeport, and I was talked to and treated like I was dirt by Dr. Sandhu. I do work full time and am fully insured, so payment was not an issue. I treated her with respect, so I can only think her problem with me was that I am from Bridgeport and have no husband.

Dr. Sandhu is a fantastic surgeon. She fixed my urinary incontinence and I am super happy that I met her. I found her to be the perfect mix of compassionate and technically excellent. She listened to my problems and was very thoughtful. She is very honest and straightforward. I always feel so comfortable talking to her. She is extremely astute. I went to Dr. Sandhu because two of my neighbors had surgery with her and recommended her highly, and so did my ObGyn and primary physician.

Extremely rude with post operation inquiries. No bedside manner or concern for patients well being. Was told to "muster through" as I brought up my pain to her. I would not recommend .

I was introduced to Dr. Sandhu's practice while experiencing a medical emergency. She was very calming and took care to explain the medical condition and choice of paths to remedy. She has performed surgery and has been attentive to me on follow-ups over the past year. I highly recommend her for her knowledge, her ability and willingness to explain, her delivery of medical care, and her empathy.
