I am very comfortable with Dr. Sankari. She answers all my questions & explains her opinion. She is very straightforward and seems to have reviewed my records before each visit. I would recommend her without reservation to anyone who suffers from Type 2 diabetes.

Very condescending to patients and medical staff. Does not take adequate time to explain diagnosis or treatment validity. Save yourself some time and find a reputable endocrinologist worthy of treating your all important health because your life depends on it!

I started going to dr Sankari after spending 24 years with another endocrinologist. I have congenital hypothyroidism and I’ve been with her now for about 6 years. I think she is a wonderful doctor and has always taken time to address any concerns. Her staff is always easy to talk to as well!
