Woman of integrity, knowledge, and expertize with love

Dr. Sanford is the most caring doctor I have ever had. She delivered my 4 kids and was so professional but warm and caring. The kind of person you would invite to dinner and she really knows her stuff !

I have excruciating abdominal pain and ovarian cysts. I have been to several doctors and my friend referred me to Dr. Sanford. My first appt she diagnosed me with endometriosis and set up a surgery date to go in and cauterize it. I have since had many more medical problems but she has helped me solve more than one issue that my other specialist docs can't seem to figure out. She is a wonderful doc and actually cares about her patients they aren't just a paycheck or another number to her.

Mis-Diagnosis

As an RN I accompanied my wife to Dr. Sanford for her gynecological exam when irregular bleeding started. Dr. Sanford took a biopsy and after receiving results gave my wife a 99.8 assurance she did NOT have any form of cancer. I was still concerned and took her to Swedish. As it turns out my wife had Stage 2b Cervical and is now undergoing chemo and radiation. Horrible diagnosis I sincerely hope Ms. Sanford launches herself into retirement IMMEDIATELY!
