How likely are you to recommend Dr. Sands?

(Select your rating)
Years of visits not only individual, but in marital and family therapy as well. This amazing Psychiatrist is honest, extremely skilled in his prescribing abilities as well as his psychotherapeutic abilities, trustworthy and professional. I have been very happy to have found such a compassionate man, who listens well, asks the right questions and provides the feedback that leaves a patient continuing to explore the triggers and struggles that initiated therapy in the first place. I would recommend him to anyone.
