Terrible! Very arrogant.
Great Doctor if you have Crohn's Disease

Dr. Sands is excellent, his staff is always professional and very helpful. Although his expertise is in high demand, he still devotes the attention necessary to each patient. My Crohn's Disease has been in remission for three years and I believe it is due to his attention to detail and the regimen he has prescribed. No complaints whatsoever about this practice and I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for an expert in IBD.
