The Best

Dr. Sands performed a laparoscopic colon resection to remove a malignant mass which required no further treatment. He said that I was lucky!! I was lucky to chose the best Surgeon in the world! This man is Awesome as a Doctor, and a true Human Being. A MENSCH. I recently had a follow up colonoscopy which he found Nothing abnormal! It has been a year and a half and I think about him and give thanks to him Every Day!

THE VERY BEST!

This review is long over-due. God used Dr Sands to give us 7 additional beautiful years with my dad. He had advanced colon cancer by the time we found Dr. Sands. My only regret is not having found him sooner. He is not only the most capable surgeon, his bedside manner is absolutely unparalleled - he has a heart of gold! It's been 13 years since my dad passed away, yet Dr Sands still keeps in touch with my family. He does all of our colonoscopies and as long as he's in Miami, he will always be our doctor (in fact, we would consider moving just to follow him!). PS, If the wait is long, its because he takes his time with each patient and that is totally worth waiting for!!
