Something must have changed.

After reading the other reviews, my thought was, "Is this the same Dr. that saved my child 17 years ago". She was diagnosed with a cyst inside the brain. Other pediatric neurosurgeons wanted to cut off top of skull, or nothing until symptoms starte showing such as collapsing, memory loss, etc. Dr. Sanford used his procedure of simply inserting a shunt/pump system that drained the cyst over a period of years. He was always kind, very patient, sweet to my daughter, reassuring to us, and we couldn't have been more pleased. I thought he would have been retired by now, as that is what he told us. With age does come grumpiness, but I would take his expertise anyday, over a egotistical jerk.

what a CREEP

I WOULD NEVER EVER REFER THIS MAN OR MONSTER TO A FRIEND OR EVEN A STRANGER IF HE WAS THE LAST NEUROSURGEON ALIVE. LET ME BE SPECIFIC: RUDE, ARROGANT, BELITTLING, THREATENING, EVIL, AND IF YOU CRY WHEN UR CHILD IS GOING BACK FOR SEDATION AND SURGERY HE WILL SAY "WHY ARE YOU CRYING?" DUH....MY CHILD IS HAVING SURGERY. HE THEN SAYS AND I QUOTE "I OPERATE ON KIDS AT ST JUDE WITH BRAIN TUMORS" AS IF MY DAUGHTER HAD NOTHING WRONG WITH HER...JUST A TOTAL DISRESPECT FOR HUMANS. HE SHOULD RETIRE AND LIVE OUT BY HIMSELF SO HE DOESN'T HURT ANYONE ELSE. MY DAUGHTER HAD A VERY SERIOUS CONDITION AND HE NEVER DIAGNOSED HER. HE THINKS HE IS GOD. WELL....NOT!!!!!!
