Five Stars

Dr. Sandiford is an intelligent and excellent physcian, with excellent bedside manner. He is a very good, if not the best surgeon/doctor for what he does in this area. I heard great reviews before seeing him, from patients to nurses/staff that have worked with him and I really enjoyed being his patient. I will always recommend him !!Administrative staff is... ehh. But the most immportant thing is that this doctor is excellent.
