Patient reviews for Dr. Carmen Sandridge
Unfortunately I didn't know that all procedures are done by her husband until she saw me. This doctor was great, but reviews for her hosband on Google are terrifying (found by address). I also would not have waited and traveled this long to be seen by a female, had I any idea that I'd be treated and diagnosed by a male - this was my preference and I had the right to know ahead of time.
I was disappointed in the wait time and the unprofessionalism of the office staff. They entered and exited my treatment room (during my 45 minute wait time—over an hour factoring in the extra time they requested to check-in beforehand as they requested!) without a knock or even acknowledgement that I was sitting there, and when I inquired about how much longer it might be, and should I reschedule, I was asked, “What, do you have another appointment or something?” and told to wait longer. I liked Dr. Sandridge, but unfortunately will not be returning to her office because of her staff.
Waited about two hours to see the doctor. When I did, the doctor was more interested in selling me a procedure than listening to my concerns. Showed me a video for a colon cleanse after I straight out told her I was not looking to get a colonoscopy, having had one pretty recently. Had to sign a paper that I said I denied the colonoscopy at the end? Extremely pushy and extremely rude. Waste of my time and money.
Very professional and thorough. Good bedside manner. Really listened to my concerns.
Dr. Sandridge was wonderful, and since my appointment I have been back to Dr. Blake’s for two procedures. All the staff have been so welcoming and warm, going above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. I have always been seen quickly and in and out for procedures in under 1.5 hours. Great practice with great people!
The office confirmed my appointment but when I showed up they had no record of me. While I was eventually seen (over 30 min late) the entire wait, no one was giving me any information. Eventually I was seen and told I need to get further tests done with no alternatives with no pricing. Overall, I wasted several hours of driving and waiting to get no where.
The doctor was very friendly and made me feel comfortable.
Don't ever go here my husband never even got seen!.
Very nice and thorough.
Very personable and explained everything very well.
Dr. Carmen was great, but I had to wait an hour before I was taken back. It was then about 20-25 minutes before I was seen by the doctor.
Great bedside manner!
Very good , She is very nice.
The doctor was very thorough. She took the time to ask questions and to listen to what I have to say as a patient. She was quite knowledgeable and gave me instant feedback to my issues!
The Dr. was professional, thorough, listened to my concerns and patient. Great service!
I so enjoyed the way I was treated and cared for in her care. I am their biggest fan. I have told family members up and down the east coast about the service and procedures they provide. Grateful and blessed to be a patient here.
I thought she was great, very concerned. She answered all my questions and reassured me that we would find a solution to what is going on with me. She was also knowledgeable and gentle.
They were very quick to offer me their deluxe colonoscopy package. Staff was nice. Very nice. It just all seemed very rushed and we did not discuss much about my issue with the actual doctor. Probably would not recommend unless someone lived very close or was in an emergency.
She was professional and had a good bedside manner. She was very interested in what was going on and had a lot of questions about what was going on and was seemed very knowledgeable when questioned and put my mind at rest about her knowledge about what might be the problem.
The wait was unbelievably long and I was on the verge of walking out on the appointment when I was finally seen. I am glad I stayed though. Dr. Sandridge was very professional, caring, and concerned. She took all symptoms into consideration. She suggested that I have a small procedure done in the office to further look into the problem. I was prepared for a really long wait the day of the procedure but I was taken back right away and out of the office within an hour. All of the staff are very nice, considerate and professional. Good people to be around.
I was extremely Happy with my Appointment! Dr. Sandridge took the time to fully explain everything to me and made sure I went away with thorough written instructions. She was genuinely interested in the issues I presented and made me feel at ease. I would recommend Dr. Dandridge to anyone!
Great! She was very nice and my follow-up treatment was also great - waiting time was a little bit long, but the doctor was super pleasant and even all the attending nurses were very nice, so I'd definitely go back.
I really like Dr. Sandbridge. My only problem is was almost an hour before I was seen by her and I was the first patient. I was hoping I would be seen in a more timely manner as I had to catch a train into work. Other than that I loved meeting with the Dr. and will come back.
I loved her work skills and her staff
She was very friendly and listened to everything I said!
I waited almost an hour to be seen for some reason. Pretty sure it was because of an issue on the front desk end and not because the doctor was running late.The doctor was very professional but it seemed like everything she said came from a script. Which I understand that most doctors do say a lot of the same things but it just felt cold and rehearsed. She didn't really explain a lot of things unless I asked and she did not really offer any solutions to my problem.
Highly recommend if considering making an appointment.
She was very thorough and she listened to my concerns. then she established what would be my best options for my situation.
Dr. Sandridge was very helpful and calming. She was very easy to talk with and answered all of my questions. I will definitely be back.
Dr. Sandridge was AWESOME!!! She explained everything and answered ALL questions that I had. I would HIGHLY recommend her!!.. She is an asset!!!!
I was a new patient so the paperwork at this visit took a bit longer, but the office is very efficient, everyone is VERY friendly, and I was very impressed with Dr Sandridge.
