Started with Dr Sandell 13 years ago. Best doctor. Caring, listens isn't in a hurry. Trys to find the best treatment. I have now moved to Florida. And still haven't found a doctor. Ones trying to charge me 500.00 . Not feeling real well. No meds. Wished I would have never moved. Best office staff. I would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Sandell did my spine injections today. He was extremely friendly, and explained everything before the procedure, and told me step by step what he was doing during the procedure. He and his staff did everything they could to keep me as comfortable as I could be. For the first time in months I actually feel a little better. Thank you!

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!
