I had my hammer toe surgery done with Dr. Sands on 4 toes. From my initial consultation to the actual surgery everything was extremely fast and efficient. X-rays were done on premise and the procedure was done in office. Procedure was less then 20 mins. Post op appointments were very fast. No wait time. My toes came out very nice so far!

Dr. Sands was professional and knowledgeable. He understood the bio-mechanical issue I have, and explained it thoroughly. He gave me a cortisone shot for the pain and suggested measures to correct it long-term,. He was emphatic that I call him in 2-3 weeks to tell him how it is working. Perfect experience.

I am surprised by the positive reviews. It's true that there was no wait and that the doctor had a nice bedside manner, he did not treat my problem. Instead, he took some pictures, told me that he would follow up with a phone call, and then I never heard from him again (other than to receive a bill). In addition, he gave me an inexpensive toe strap (easily found at the drugstore or on amazon for very little money), and then charged my insurance company a lot of money for it. (The toe strap made my toe hurt more, not less). The visit cost a few hundred dollars.

As a physician I trusted Dr. Sands with my feet and couldn't have been happier with the result. Despite a previous wrong diagnosis he did not allow it to cloud his judgement. On my way to recovery.

I would NEVER refer Dr. Sands to anyone. He was excellent in the beginning with my visits & his care. However, something happened at some point where his professionalism & attitude changed. He stood my elderly sick Mother up with making his promised home visits 3 x's. I received no cancellation notification at all. I tried calling his office, spoke to the receptionists and left messages. He never had the courtesy of returning my calls. He just vanished. How rude, inconsiderate & unacceptable. Wish I really what caused thus to happen. NOT professional in the least!!!
