Dr Sandoval is awesome. He has been great to me, and doesn't just do surgery to get the money. He won't operate u less you need it. The office staff, however, is quite rude and condescending. Lady at the front won't even answer a question about a form they're asking to be filled out.

I really enjoy this doctor. He explained everything to me in language I could understand. He is funny and has good bedside manners.He stayed in room with me until I understood everything. I would recommend this dr to any and everyone. After avoiding surgery, I finally had it and wished I found dr sandoval years ago for him to do my surgery. I feel no pain now since i have had my knee replaced. I had another dr do the other knee years ago and it still hurts. He is the best for new knees.

I have been dealing with pain iny shoulder for years. Tried many doctors. Dr Sandoval was the first that listened to me. I liked that even though he is an surgeon, surgery was not the first thing he wanted to try. All other surgeons I have gone to have always had surgery as a result before they even saw me. But dr Sandoval sat with me and we together set up a plan to avoid surgery for me. I was really impressed with him.

I was very pleased with my expirence from the receptionist who helped me schedule my appointment and got me seen right away, to the X-ray technician who was very friendly and professional. Dr. Sandoval's office was very busy that day, however I never felt rushed. He sat with me patiently and listend. He explained my x-rays and treated my hand and follow up with me days later. I highly recommend

Dr Sandoval explained to me a that I had a torn tendon and told me he would not operate on me because of my medical history of vascular problems. He was rude and did not offer any other suggestions or alternate therapies. He told me my condition was bad and dismissed me with callous disdain. I felt his opinion was based on the type of insurance I had to offer and if it had been something better than a Medicare Advantage plan his entire approach would have been different. Money and ethics.
