One of the best doctors I have ever been to. He is so affable and he is so adept at explaining things. He makes other doctors look bad in how he takes time with you but remains efficient. Reviewing Dr. Sandbergis hard because it is hard to put into words the experience of seeing him. He is fantastic at what he does, that is all.

Great doctor and office! Arrived 10 mins before my appointment to fill out paperwork, everything went smoothly, front desk staff were great! Nurse who took my vitals was wonderful and listened to everything i had to say. Dr. Sandberg is agreat doctor. Listened to all my problems thoroughly, and explained everything in detail. The best, I had to have him check something you would say is, well, awkward, and he made me feel at ease and comfortable the whole time. I will go back to this doctor anytime I need his services with confidence.

Doctor Alan Sandberg is really nice. I like how much he actually talks to you without you asking questions. It makes you feel that he cares which is very important and appreciated. He recommend me to get some smaller exams donebefore going in to take larger exams which I appreciated. I would go back to him if I need to but, wish he had a larger availability at the Forest Hills location.

Dr. Sandberg is a great physician. He is highly knowledgeable and actually listens to the concerns of the patients. The first time I used him was through zocdoc for what could have been considered a medical emergency. Dr. Sandberg addressedthe situation very well as was not dismissive of my concerns. He was able to fit me in for the procedure needed to fix the problem the very next morning. He thoroughly explained the procedure as well as treatment protocols. I saw him for a follow-up and felt just as comfortable. I highly recommend this doctor.
