I had a great experience, she was very polite and detailed in everything that I needed help with. She was a little difficult to understand but that's not big deal. She was also on her phone often when I would be in the middle of a conversation with her but I do that too so I don't blame her.

After a long search on the internet I finally found the medical office I’m completely satisfied with. Dr. Sandler impressed me with her professionalism, she is always on point and very polite. The work of the front desk was well-organized and it was a pleasure communicating with the staff. I would highly recommend this office to my friends. P.S. Many thanks to sweetheart Anya, for handling my 100+ questions so patiently and professionally.

Bella Sandler was my primary care physician for over two years but--today--I switched as her receptionist literally and without exaggeration assaulted me over a billing dispute. The dark-haired, 20-something Russian lady who works as Dr. Sandler's assistant refused to give me her name when I asked for it as I wanted to speak with Dr. Sandler about the unbelievably rude way I was treated. So when I took a picture of her to make sure I could show the doctor the correct person, this young lady lost her mind. She grabbed and crumpled the papers I was holding and tried to yank them out of my hand, then came from around the desk and physically pushed me to thedoor of the office. All over a silly misunderstanding of billing that didn't need to escalate. She then called me twice on my cell phone as I walked home saying she was going to report me to the police for sexual harassment. I said go ahead. My same-sex male partner of 12 years would be surprised to hear I had sexually harassed a woman. I spoke with the doctor about the inexcusable physical touching today and, although she is very nice, I didn't get the impression she would discipline her receptionist at all as she made excuses about how the receptionist was "probably scared" and "has never done this before". So although I like Dr. Sandler (in spite of her being perpetually late in getting through her patients), I have been forced to switch providers as I don't want someone with such anger issues as her assistant privy to my private information. I wouldn't advise using this office unless you're Russian as everyone who works here is. Perhaps it's a culture thing but in the USA, count yourself lucky I'm not suing that she laid hands on me.

I have been Dr. Sandler's patient for about a year and I am happy to finally find my primary care doctor. I find her knowledgeable and very efficient. She always goes straight to the point and also addresses all my concerns. Every visit from walk in to walk out is takes no longer then 40 min with all the tests that I need. The staff in the office is very nice and professional as well.

Dr. Sandler is a consummate professional with outstanding bedside manner. I have had many experiences with primary care physicians where I felt a marked absence in patient-doctor rapport. Dr. Sandler's entire team is extremely personable and resonates a level of warmth that is sorely lacking in healthcare these days. Dr. Sandler is patient, keen, and meticulous in gathering medical history and conducting physical exams. Although my insurance does not require me to select a gatekeeper PCP, I am confident that would not be a question to ponder for long.

Dr. Sandler and her staff are all I could have hoped for in a medical practitioner. She has been my primary care physician for several years now and has always provided the absolute best care, and I believe, best advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue. If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring even while maintaing a very efficient office, then Dr. Sandler is someone you should consider visiting.

Dr. Sandler seemed to me to have all the traits and characteristics of the ideal doctor, such as competence, compassion, inquisitiveness, kindness, humane, forthright, thorough, confidence and empathy. Doctor is a good listener, she tried to understand what I was feeling and experiencing, physically and emotionally, and communicated that understanding to me. She was able to give me the best recommendation for diagnostic and treatment. The doctor’s confidence gave me confidence, and she took my input seriously and worked with me effectively. Dr. Sandler gave me the feeling that I will feel better and healthier with the right treatment. Dr. Sandler speaks multiple languages, which allowed my parents to speak with her in their native language. It had a positive impact during assessment. I would highly recommend this doctor, since she is a very professional specialist, she sees the problem through the prism of different aspects. Dr. Sandler is perfect for the whole family. I was excited to know, that I can be seen by OB/GYN specialist, cardiologist, gastroenterologist and chiropractor in one office, which makes my commute much easier. I would give five stars to the office staff, who were extremely supportive. They provided me with a lot of attention and support, and were very informative about my insurance plan. The office location is the best, near all public transportation including Forest Hills Rail Road Station, and famous shopping on Austin Street.

I came in for a follow-up for a car accident. Unfortunately, it felt that Dr. Sandler and her staff were more interested in taking legal steps than medical ones. I understand that insurance claims are different following accidents; however, I had to insist over 5 times that I did NOT want them to refer me to a lawyer. Dr. Sandler's examination of my injuries was not satisfactory and I left with many questions regarding my symptoms (her exam felt like it was from a sheet marked "what to check after car accident" and was not tailored to my experience at all). She also recommended physical therapy but gave me no medical reason for needing it, only saying that following car accidents its good to do physical therapy. Finally, after being asked to sign papers authorizing the release of my information to an attorney (despite having said many times that I did not want one) I left. I received a call afterward telling me that I left my scripts for physical therapy and for ibuprofen (WHY do I need a doctor's prescription for that??). I did not feel as though Dr. Sandler was looking to help me medically, but rather to prepare me for a claim and make money off of my accident.

Staff was unfriendly and had no data from ZocDoc. (Had to re-fill all on paper.) Doc's Russian accent is a bit hard to understand. She is not the most attentive listener, and I felt she rushed her diagnosis a little. In fact, her prescription (of a certain non-medication for a medical condition) neither made sense to me nor helped.

Was told to come in an hour early, which I thought meant they were slow, but I ended up waiting PAST my original appointment time and beyond. Total wait was probably an hour and a half. Also sort of felt manhandled as one of the nurse practitioners did a procedure that required me to remove my shirt and bra and lay on my back: she didn't leave the room or give me any sort of gown. For a first visit this felt really strange and uncomfortable. Also felt like the doctor didn't really believe my reasons for coming there and treated me like someone who just wanted pills. I'm not sure if I'll go back, but I might just because I figure it can't get any worse.
