by Joy on Mar 6th, 2015

Several months back after having blood work done and my thyroid levels unusual, I was referred to Dr. Sandberg. He came highly recommended. I explained the symptoms I been having for quite a long time,some of them being: fatigue, thinning and hair loss, brittle nails, weight gain, etc.. He reviewed my blood work. Because my levels were raised / lowered in what he considered not a "normal" abnormal, he said that he thought the lab made a mistake. He stated that thyroid conditions do not cause hair loss and documented it right on My Patient Paperwork. He decided he would run the tests again at a different lab. Two weeks went by and I heard nothing, so I called his office. Well, wouldn't you know, the results where the same!! My thyroid numbers were still our of range. When I asked what steps we should take next, he said it there was nothing he could do and said to go to a dermatologist for my hair. I cried!!! I went back to my family Dr. who decided to started me on a low does of thyroid medication and increased accordingly until my symptoms improved. Its been nearly 8 months now, the end sides of my eyebrows grew back, my hair is coming back, the fatigue is less severe, the list of improvements goes on and on. Dr. Sandberg is the last Dr. I would ever see for endocrine problems!!!!!!!

Dr Sandberg has gone above and beyond in caring for my father who was recently diagnosed with diabetes. When we first asked for an appt none was available -we explained his situation and he saw us before the office opened! My parents were frightened -my dad was already jaundiced from his other medical issue- and dr Sandberg explained everything to them until they understood. When his blood sugars were all over the map, the nurses at the education center said they would ask the dr and get back to them. Dr Sandberg came over personally and patiently explained what we needed to do -even writing all down for us! He is a wonderful, caring and smart dr. We are so pleased with the care he has provided !

I have often thought about Dr. Sandberg over the years since he went back home and since I found this page, I want to say a few words about him. He treated my father,Ellis L. Marsalis,Sr,who has been deceased for 8 years now but I never forgot the loving care and patience Doc.took with me and my father. I pray he is doing well and know that I hold him in my prayers daily and want everyone to know that in my book, he is one of the best. Yours in Christ, Yvette R. Marsalis

Claimed he treated Graves Disease but does not show details Claimed he treated Graves Disease but does not

I came to Dr Sandberg as he claimed he could treat Graves Disease with medicine, but I found out the hard way, that he could NOT balance my meds and was not knowledgeable about how to do so. If you have Graves Disease, stay away, as I ended up in the hospital, almost in thyroid storm, after trusting this doc. After my episode, he was back on the radioactive bandwagon, as that is the ONLY way this endo knows how to treat Graves. It is now 7 years later, and with the right endo I am now in remission. Stay away.

Doctor's Response

I find it concerning that I am reviewed by someone seven year later. I offer my patients all options and I explain both the risks and benefits so we can make a joint decision, together.

Years ago, when Dr. Marc Sanberg was a practicing Endocronologist at Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans, La. I was a patient of his. I had just learned I had Diabetes. From the very first visit, I knew I had found a Dr. that would not only be able to treat my diabetes, but would also treat me like a person and not a number. Throughout the years, I had nothing but praise for Dr. Sanberg of his treatment for my diabetes. One visit...he said he would be leaving Ochsner and going to New Jersey. I was going to lose a wonderful, caring Dr. and I felt like I was also losing a friend..Then he said to me..."anytime you need help, please call me in New Jersey, and I will do everything I can to help you"!!!! I will never forget Dr. Marc Sanberg and I thank you for being my dr. so many years ago...Julien Marse
