Specialties

Dr. Bruce J Sand has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Worse Office Staff

Dr. Sands is the best too bad his office staff is so rude and unprofessional! I see all the reviews about money and co-pays I had the same problems with them. I have been a patient for 10 years and I will never go back. Dr Sands is great but he is surrounding himself with office staff that do not have his best interests at heart. He said how sorry he was about my treatment but those office people don't deserve to be employed!

BEWARE- DO NOT GO TO THIS OFFICE!

BEWARE IF YOU HAVE KIDS OR WANT TO BE TREATED WITH RESPECT DO NOT GO TO THIS OFFICE!!! First I would like to say Dr Sand is a very nice gentleman and unfortunately it's his office staff that is causing him to lose patients and now referrals from other doctors! I had an appointment 5/4 at 4pm, prior to my appointment my son had a tooth extraction. Note my children slept on the 40 min drive to my appointment and were still half asleep when we entered my appointment. We signed in and the woman up front immediately offered my children a sucker of which we thanked her for and sat down. My son had his kindle in his lap but was still fairly groggy from his extraction and pretty much sat there dazed and my daughter was talking and giggling with me. Out of nowhere some woman from the back comes out and tells me "keep your children quiet we have several sick patients in the office today"! I sat there dazed myself and in complete disbelief and looked at the gentleman sitting next to me and said that was rude to which he agreed. I grabbed my children knocked on the window to which no one answered so we just left! I called the following day to ensure I wasn't going to be charged for my visit which they assured me I wasn't going to be charged. I also told them how I would not be returning due to the rudeness of their coworker when I was told again how it was my children being loud and rambunctious! I will be the first to admit when my kids are out of line and this was FAR from the case!! I explained to them how upset I was and that I wanted all my information sent back to my primary care doctor. This was all Friday 5/5, come to find out Monday morning 8:30am Lynn at their office called my primary care to inform them that they had an issue with me and that my children were throwing magazines and that my son was so inconsolable and very upset from having his tooth pulled so they gave them suckers to calm them down and keep them quiet. ALL LIES! What they did not realize when they called to tell them this was that my primary care has been my Doctor and family friend for over 20 years and they called me to get the real story because unfortunately this isn't the first time they've had a problem with his office staff! So I write this just to warn parents unless you want to be treated with complete disrespect and have you children lied about DO NOT EVER GO TO THIS OFFICE!

Medical Administrator

As a long term member of the professional medical community, I am familiar with many physicians throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area. I have consistently been a recipient of exceptional feedback regarding Dr. Sand, his devotion to his patients, impressive knowledge of GI medicine, and superior health care. Moreover, although I have been fortunate to not have any Gastroenterology related health issues, I have used Dr. Sand for my screening colonoscopies. Dr. Sand proved to not only be a wonderful physician but also a highly skilled endoscopist. Fortunately, my career within the medical community allows me to be informed of those physicians highly respected by their peers and within the industry. Dr. Sand is certainly one of those that tops the list!
