The visit was done quickly and professionally. Dr. Sands and his Assistant were more than helpful and the treatment has been followed. It was nice to get in and out so quickly. Things are looking up as I type. Peter F. Ainsworth

I have known Dr. Sands for 20+ years, and have consulted with him for a variety of skin issues over the years, from poison ivy to melanoma. I have always felt thoroughly examined, well diagnosed, up to date with photographic documentation, excellent usage of computerized records, and aware of all of my co-morbid conditions that might alter my care. When he moved from the Concord Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinic group to the new Concord location, I chose to continue with him, although my PCP is at DHC. The parking is actually a bit easier at the new site, and is also closer to my home, but the value of continuity of care was the predominant reason for my staying with Peter Sands, MD.

Dr Sands is a wonderful doctor. He is very thorough, takes his time to speak with you and go over all your issues and background andales a thoughtful discussion on how to treat you. He is also very personable and has a wonderful bedside manner. I was visiting from out of state and the office staff was very helpful in getting me in quickly. I highly recommend Dr Sands and his practice!

I was surprised to see such a low rating. I felt he was an excellent doctor. I've seen him a lot of times for several different reasons. He was very soft spoken and I felt he really listened to what my concerns were. I didn't feel rushed and his staff was above and beyond friendly and caring. Personally highly recommended! Currently my mother has a cancerous spot on her face and she is in excellent hands with him.

Dr. Sands was very professional at the office visit however the sample he took out for biopsy was sent to an out of network lab in Ca. without my knowledge and I ended up with a $900 bill. Had he used the lab in the Dartmouth facility there would have been no charge. The sample he sent for biopsy turned out to be in ingrown and not the purpura in question. Since then despite several calls there has been no resolution.
