What People Say About Dr. Sandra Escandon, MD
Reply
Was thorough in treatment, but not personable or friendly. I felt that she had the “I’m the Doctor you’re the patient” attitude. I had an issue that brought me to the emergency room and when they told me to follow up ASAP, she couldn’t see me for over a month. Don’t accept new patients if you can’t accommodate the ones you have. Switched to another practice that could better accommodate me as per scheduling.
