Bruce S Sand DR
Dr Sand is a very good doctor my opinion. He is thorough and caring. He treated me like I was important to him. BUT, I must warn you readers to beware of his office manager. This woman is very rude and abusive over the phone and even worse when dealing with her face to face. She literally yelled at me in front of other patients. I happened to be undergoing a very intense treatment. This treatment lowered my blood count down to 4, I did not feel I could drive that particular day so I had to call a friend to take me to my appointment. when I arrived I was feeling terrible with a ferver to boot. I was 5 minutes late. This He/Woman was screaming at me to the point she made me cry. I have never been treated like this crazy lady treated me that horrible day. I will never forget her mean ugly crazy face as she berated me in front of others. The other office staff were also mortified by the treatment I was receiving from this demented person, they whisked be away into a room where the nurse profusely apologized for the crazy lady's outburst. As I said, I was very ill that day and did not have the strength to defend myself. I never wanted to lay eyes on this witch ever again, but I was in the middle of a long treatment with my Doc. I have since finished this treatment but today needed to schedule a follow up appt. and who should I be lucky enough to have answer my call... The Crazy Woman. After another conversation with her again yelling at me I had to hang up, not before I stated my mind. This "office manager" has been mentioned on many other rating sites. I see why all the other staff that was there when I started going to Dr. Sand are no longer working there. What a piece of work this horrible person is. I don't know why she is not working a job better suited for her like maybe a drill sergeant, a prison guard in Russia or someone who can club baby seals for fur. I despise this woman and I'm not that kind of person. I am tolerant and kind, but this "office manager" can really bring out the worst in anybody.

Radoff, Geoffrey P, MD
My family loves Dr Radoff! My mom & dad have been going to him for many, many years. Dr Radoff is the unique blend of being both an MD and a Homeopathic doctor. That means he knows intimately both traditional medicine as well as alternative treatments very well, so he can evaluate each patient's needs and treat them with the best tools available. He treats the whole person and he cares about what they are going through. He has been in practice for many years, so we trust his many years of experience. But he is never content with just that. He is constantly reading research studies, attending continuing educational seminars and seeking new, cutting edge therapies. He is kind, honest and very upfront with the patient & family about what he sees and what he thinks needs to be done. If you ask a question & he can't answer it immediately, he is honest enough to admit that he doesn't know everything there is to know about everything. But he also goes out & does his homework to find out the answer for you. I can personally recommend Dr Radoff very highly!

Bruce S Sand DR
I feel so incredibly fortunate that my PCP recommended Dr. Sand for my Gastroenterology related issues. After having been seen by several other GI doctors, Dr. Sand was the only one who immediately and correctly identified and treated my medical condition. I found Dr. Sand's expertise, professionalism, compassion, and thoroughness to be exceptional and exemplary. I can certainly appreciate why my PCP refers his GI patients to this amazing physician. I also found his wonderful staff to be very kind, caring, and accommodating throughout my relationship with the office. It is without reservation that I recommend Dr. Sand for your Gastroenterology health care and needs!

Dr. Gering is and excilent peds doctor. He has been my family dr. since 1978. He and his staff have taken great care of my siblings and now my kids. He has been great with my sons asthem, and then my daughter when she was born six weeks premature. They help to make sure my kids are healthy. I never have problems getting and appointment when needed and that my wait time is short. They keep appointment time and Dr. G. remembers my family from the time I was a kid. Its nice to have a doctor that has been a doctor for my family when having family doctor is thing of the past. Thanks you and your staff for all you do. Keep up the great work

Swanson, Eli A, MD
My 6 year old son was in an accident and shattered his femur 6 months ago. Dr Swanson was at the hospital when they flew my son there. He did the surgery that night and put two rods inside his bone to hold it all together. That was the first route he wanted to go. He also had two back up procedures in case the rods didn't work out. He would come and check on my son each day to see how he was doing. He is very nice and communicates very well what he is going to do. He just took the rods out yesterday and my son is doing great I am so glad Dr Swanson was the one to fix my sons leg. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr Swanson.

Stanley A. Gering, M.D.
We have been taking our kids to Dr. Gering for more than six years despite the 30 minute drive from our house and can not say enough about how pleased we are with his practice. Dr. Gering dedicates as much time to each appointment as needed and there is never the feeling that he is anxious to get to the next patient. The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Any left messages are responded to by business end so there is never an anxious overnight wait for a response. We knew we made the right choice when the maternity ward nurse nodded her approval when told who our childrens' pediatrician is.

Radoff, Geoffrey P, MD
Dr. Radoff has found the root cause for many of my complaints or illnesses and been able to resolve them. He is very caring, knowledgeable, and will spend as much time with you as needed. He uses many homeopathic remedies, one of which got my blood pressure under control after years on medication. I no longer need meds for HBP. He also did some genetic tests that no doctor had ever suggested that pointed out some of my weak areas that we are now addressing. I feel time spent with doctors in the past was kind of a waste of time, he's done more in 8 months than they ever did

Valley Pain Centers
The staff is very professional and prompt in scheduling me for my appts. The Doctors take the time to listen to me and really work to find the best treatment plan for my condition. The Doctors are experienced and very professional with their care for me. I have gotten great relief from my low back pain and can actually function in my daily activities without pain for the first time in a long, long time! I would highly recommend them to any of my family or friends.

Kids Kare Pediatrics
doctors are always friendly but lately the doctor always dismisses whatever illness I have as allergies. I have had bronchitis in the past so I know what it feels like, I have it again and when I visited the doctor she told me that it was only an ear infection and effects from my allergies which is ridiculous. She didn't ask me for all my symptoms and just assumed before properly having a conversation about what I was feeling exactly. Very disappointed in the service
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
