The best doctor ever.

Dr. Desandies has been my physician for 8 years and I couldn't ask for a better doctor. His bedside manner is impeccable and his staff is very kind and professional. I have reccommended him to several of my family members who are also now patients of his. He's caring, considerate, and very thorough in his care. Dr. Desandies is not the type of physician that will rush through your appointment. I am grateful to God that I have been blessed with such a wonderful human being as my physician.

Greatest OBGYN

Best Gynecologist ever!!! He delivered all of my children, Dr. Desandies had been my OBGYN since I was a teen. Dr, Desandies taught me all about how my body works, so when I see other doctors I can inform them of my bodies history. Thank you Dr. Desandies for years of being a great doctor, friend and a really caring doctor for your patients. They don't make a lot of doctors like you any more.

One Star

While Dr. DeSandies himself was very nice and I enjoyed my visit with him, I feel compelled to describe my experience with him at Nova Patient Care in Alexandria: was offered unnecessary medical tests as part of the office's routine service, inappropriately reassured that all would be covered, and then found the office completely unresponsive to the subsequent billing issues that it/Dr. DeSandies alone could resolve with absolutely no sympathy or accountability or consideration of my time (had to call repeatedly for over 6 weeks). $1000 bill for requesting STD screening!
