The front office staff was rude and unhelpful. It took them 3 weeks to receive my referral and check my insurance after I called several times. They called to indicate 'they didn't take my insurance,' which turned out to be incorrect - they take United - they just 'didn't want to deal with my out of state United insurance.' I guess they can cherry pick their patients. We will take your insurance, but you will have to pay if it's difficult for us to get reimbursed." I am happy to go elsewhere

Dr. Sandell and his PA Jamie Case are very caring and professional. I have been a patient since 2009. I would highly recommend both of them to anyone with chronic pain or back issues.

I can't even begin to explain how wonderful Dr Sandell and his staff at the Audubon surgery center are!!! I have been there a few times for injections and every time I am there it is always the same smiling, wonderful staff. Very professional and very personable. I love that Dr Sandell takes the time to answer any questions I might have, and it's usually a few. I highly recommend Dr Sandell at the pain center as well as his wonderful staff!
