What People Say About Dr. Sameera Sandhu, MD
Reply
Excellent, she was a gentle, knowledge, but determined young doctor who immediately knew what was my problem and resolved it in no time. I wish she stayed at the same place where I would keep her as my PCP.

About Me

Tread gently. In the field of Palliative Medicine, I see patients and families at their most vulnerable. I like to explore where they are in the understanding of their medical illness and their lives. I listen, work to reduce distressing symptoms associated with advanced stage illness and cancer and also help patients/families navigate difficult decisions and discussions.
