It's been many years since I've seen Dr. Sanford. I saw him for about 10 years. Dr. Sanford is the absolute best. as well as his staff. I only remember Jana. I'm having some issues now and I know Bob would know what to do. I'd give anything to be able to see him now. He is personable, professional, thorough, and caring. In my search for a good Urologist, to my surprise Dr. Sanford was listed first even though I live so far away. Dr Sanford is the best...
