Patient Comments (4)
in Thousand Palms, CA |
One of the best doctors that I have seen in a long time. The negative comments that I see on this site are the complete opposite to what I experienced as one of Dr. Sanford's patients. His staff was very helpful and efficient. It was a pleasure to see a medical practice being run so professionally!!!

After calling several urologists I was able to get a next day appt from Dr Sanford. I had read the reviews and was hesitant to see him but was desperate to be seen. I was rather pleasantly surprised at how positive an experience I had. He was very thorough in explaining my condition and did not hesitate to order further exams to make sure everything is functioning properly. His staff was professional and pleasant.

My husband was diagnosed with an early stage, malignant kidney tumor and referred to Sanford. Without reviewing the CT scan or ordering any tests to determine kidney function, Sanford told him that he'd probably lose the one kidney, the other kidney didn't function very well and he'd probably be on dialysis within the year. We went to UCLA. 5 years later, my husband has two kidneys that function quite well and the malignant tumor was removed. So much for Sanford's wisdom or expertise.

His staff, especially the front desk girl is rude and unpleasant. My father is 86 and has been his patient for years. He thought Dr. Sanford cared about him. But after he was diagnosed with a UTI which was MRSA and he was admitted to the hospital, it took the good doctor 5 days to pay him a visit and his office is next door. When he was in very serious condition, we couldn't even get a timely return call from Dr. Sanford or his office staff . His excuse...... he's busy. Don't go to him..
