I was truly impressed with your nice facility and the caring staff and friendly can do attitude and smiles. The TV Monitor & secretary playing beautiful relaxing nature music was the best I have ever seen. THEY'RE TRULY AMAZING, as well as the front desk was incredible on all 3 visits I made to your office. I love the fact that you bill for one visit and can return within 10 days to have a follow up. Plus the billing lady was able to verify they take my insurance. THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH!!!

Dr. Sandhu was very courteous and professional, however, his office staff is in my opinion, incompetent. Dr. Sandhu should seek better staff to manage his office. The office was directed to acquire a medical authorization for a CAT scan. It has been three weeks and the authorization has yet to be secured. Will not be returning.
