Dr. Sands has been managing my primary health care for many years. My experience is that he is professional, smart, compassionate, and takes personal interest in the wellbeing of his patients and their family. He is prompt in returning calls or messages and listens to his patients. Dr. Sands takes his time and doesn't rush you through like an assembly line. The staff are professional and pleasant.

They don't make them like Dr. Sands anymore. You aren't just another 15 minute patient time slot to him. He takes the time to get to know you and your history and he is genuinely invested in your health and healing. He talks to you and makes sure he understands your concerns and that you understand the treatment he is prescribing. He'll even tell a bad joke now and then to keep you smiling. He will work with you until your feeling healthy and strong again. It's good to know you have an advocate with his medical knowledge and caring concern. I highly recommend for anyone looking for that personal primary physician.

Dr. Sands is an excellent physician. He is very caring, knowledgeable and friendly. I’ve been going to him for 20+ years and I wouldn’t go to any other doctor. He takes time with me to review test results and we work together on a treatment plan. He simply is a great doctor!

Dr. Sand was the worst doctor I’ve ever seen. Incredibly condescending. Clearly didn’t actually listen to anything I said and I left his office in tears. He didn’t even bother to follow up. Didn’t care at all and I’d never even return to his office on the off chance i’d Ever have to deal with him.

Very poor experience with Dr. Sands by several family members. Very condescending attitude over phone on a Saturday when he was on call. He was very condescending to my son on a visit in the past. I would rather wait for one of the other doctors than be seen by him again. He made a situation more stressful by his attitude with me over the phone when I was already worried about my son. I don't think I ever got my question out that I wanted to ask. I would never recommend him to anyone.
