    My mother suffered a major heart attack on July 7, 2018, and was sent to ORMC for a bypass surgery back the next day. After a review of the tests, Dr. Sand came into her room and told us that he was going to adjust her meds and send her home. Since we were still concerned, he told us he would talk to a colleague. Turns out that she was having a "Widow Maker" from a blockage in the LAD. She has a second heart attack a month later because of blocked arteries which were borderline at the time

    I had my first visit with Dr Sand on 9/27/18. The first person to greet me was Tenisha at the front desk. Tenisha handles all of the "front of house" admin issues with ease and professionalism and has a wonderful personality. Dr Sand has a great personality and calm demeanor which really puts your mind at ease. He truly cares about his patients and explains everything. A brilliant man with a gift to heal. The entire visit from start to finish was truly an excellent experience!

    Simply the best. They don't make medical professionals like him anymore. He's thorough, honest, caring, professional, extremely experienced and funny too. Dr Sand is God sent - I just can't effectively articulate how important this man has been in our lives.
