After suffering several years from pain and numbness radiating from my fingers up to my shoulder, I met with Dr. Sandquist. After a nerve study and MRI, I was diagnosed with cervical stenosis, radiculopathy and myelopathy. He performed cervical laminoplasty and foraminotomies on C-4 through C-7. The surgery was a complete success. I was immediately free of the pain and numbness in my hands, arm and shoulders. I highly recommend Dr. Sandquist! At 6 wks. post surgery, I am healing very well!
Theresa, thank you for your kind review. We are so happy to hear you are healing well. We will pass along your comments to Dr. Sandquist. Take care. -The Oregon Clinic

I scheduled an appointment at the earliest date which was one month out. They canceled that appointment because the dr wasn't there. It took two more weeks to get in to see him. I had an appointment at 10am. I got called back to a room at 10:10. Dr Sandquist didn't see me until 12:10. I waited for two hours for him to tell me in five minutes that my insurance would most likely not cover his recommended treatment. He could have told me that at 10:10am or over the phone.
