Dr. Sandhu became our doctor in 2017 with my husband experiencing some heart issues. Within a couple of weeks he was in surgery having a triple bypass. Through it all Dr. Sandhu was nothing but very compassionate & professional. A year later it was my turn needing to have several heart test ran including an angiogram. Again he took very good care of me. He takes his time with each patient and is open to answering any and all questions. We have never felt rushed when visiting his office by him or any of his staff. When I have needed to see doctors in other medical disciplines, he has given me recommendations or referrals when needed. We have truly been blessed by having him as our doctor.

Dr. Sandhu has been my cardiologist for 2 years now and never had he been rude or rushed with me. He is the best Dr./cardiologist and has the very best bedside manner. I am very over weight but he has never ever made me feel awful because of it on the contrary he had explained the importance of losing weight in a very nice and subtle way. He cares about my feelings so because of that I got my son and my sister in to see him so now he treats the three of us. We couldn’t be happier. I truly adore Dr. Sandhu and of course his right hand “man” lol ?? nurse Brea. She is awesome and just as amazing as Dr. Sandhu. I would definitely recommend him to anybody in need of a cardiologist with no regrets. I thank God he was put in my path.

I am so grateful to Dr. Sandhu for helping me get through a bumpy patch with my heart this past winter. Fortunately, it is just something that needs to be watched, but he was very thorough in checking everything out. I am also grateful to Dr. Singh who saw me as a walk-in when I was having my issues because Dr. Sandhu was out of the office. Dr. Singh made an adjustment in my medications, and I had not further problems. These are team players and professionals in every way! Bless them!

At first - I felt intimidated by him... maybe he was just having an off day... My last meeting with him changed everything - he was engaged & was genuinely happy he was and is my cardiologist. Some times as patients I think we need to remember the work load Dr.'s carry and that they are under a lot of pressure. Thank you Dr. Sandhu and your nurse Brea.
