I have not had my surgery yet but I cannot say enough about the amazing care I got in my first appointment. From the front desk to Dr. Sandford. This place runs like a well oiled machine and they think of everything! I left feeling like I was exactly where I needed to be. Getting diagnosed with breast cancer is horrible but this is the team you want to have your back! I will add to my review after my surgery :)

Very good doctor, polite staff. They worked with my insurance and were upfront and honest about costs, which I appreciate

Dr. Sandford's office was awesome! They got me in right away and even stayed open late to make sure I could be seen the same day I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The office manager was so sweet, she offered me a payment plan for surgery costs so everything was really affordable. I'm incredibly lucky to have them as my doctor's office, I would recommend them without any reservation whatsoever.

If you are looking for a physician who will fight for you, Dr. Sandford is your gal! She is knowledgeable, patient, compassionate, driven, and thorough. I have never met a provider as driven as she is to make sure all of her patient's needs are met.

The front office Manager was extremely rude, and over charged me for my visit. I won't be coming back here.
