Patient Comments (2)
in San Marcos, CA |
I met Dr. Sanchez in March 2017, when they found, through a CT Scat that I had a brain aneurysm. Doctor Sanchez performed an andovascular coil repair procedure in June. He explained in detail what type of surgery he would be performing. His bedside manner is excellent, he takes time to explain things and takes great pride in his work. His staff/surgical assistants are great and have great respect for him. Great looking man. I will see him in Sept for my 2nd procedure. Ruth, San Marcos, CA

Dr. Sanchez is a world-class brain surgeon--highly skilled and meticulous. His bedside manner is excellent. He takes the time to explain things well and takes great pride in his work, while remaining friendly and humble. His staff/surgical assistants also all seem to have great respect for him and his work. Good outcomes are never certain, but Dr. Sanchez will give you the best chance. He removed my skull base meningioma with no loss of function and very rapid recovery.
