Dr. Sandler is the most knowledgeable of any physician I have ever seen. He always spends the time to get to know you, and discusses your health concerns thoroughly. You can ask him anything about every conceivable health concern, and he will have an answer, even if it is not in the field of nephrology.

This so called doctor is very rude, unprofessional and disrespectful. His solution to my daughter's chronic constipation is doing a clean out again for the third time, never explaining what meds or the process of it. When I had questions, he became angry, flipped his computer around and said how about I just have the procedure done where a tube is put down her throat to resolve the problem. Not enough space here to write everything that happened but I left the office in tears & will NOT go back.
