Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Sanna was supportive, attentive and involved in my mothers care through a very serious health issue that involved hospitalization. Even though she didn't care for her directly at the hospital, she made herself available and followed up. Being a new care giver, it meant the world to have her answer all my questions.

I love Dr. Sanna. She has a quiet countenance about her (which can seem like a cold bedside manner, but is not), yet a very dry sense of humor. She listens patiently to all my gripes while being concerned, and she perseveres to get to the bottom of it all. She always answers my emails within 24 hours. When my husband was diagnosed with cancer, she went above and beyond to take him on as a patient and get him referrals to all the right doctors. For that alone, I am profoundly grateful.

Stay away from this doctor. Does not care about her elderly patients. Poor decision making regarding care and terrible judgment. Impossible to reach by phone. Has no people skills and no empathy. Should not be treating vulnerable seniors.

A very straight-forward, no frills, approach to medicine. Down to earth. Knowledgeable and credible. A good physician who hears what you have to say and takes it in regard to her diagnosis. Execellent diagnotitian.
