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.

Moffitt, Drew V, MD
I had my consultation with Dr. Moffitt at Arizona Reproductive Medicine Specialist in January 2017. This was our last chance with fertility before giving up. We had been at this for years. After 4 unsuccessful attempts of IUI, we decided to switch doctors. From the very first consultation, my husband and I felt very welcomed and comfortable with Dr. Moffitt and the entire staff at ARMS. I was assigned a RN to follow me through the entire process. Gail and I became great buddies…talking almost every other day at times during the different stages of IVF. With all of the tracking, shots, meds, ultrasounds, bloodwork, etc I NEVER felt like a patient number. I always felt like family. You get to know all of the staff from your frequent visits. Then it came down to embryo transfer day. We were so on edge and nervous praying this was going to work and make our dreams come true of having our family. Every single person was so upbeat and asking if I needed anything or how I was feeling. They had great conversations to try to get my mind off of what they knew I was obsessing about. I thought the transfer was stressful, but the next 9 days before the blood test that would determine if it worked or not was worse. Dr. Moffitt calls that day with the results himself. THEY WERE POSITIVE! A dream come true!!! The next couple follow up appointments with the ultrasounds to make sure everything was progressing properly, Dr. Moffitt performed himself. I have never felt more comfortable and part of a family than I did at ARMS. On my last appointment, Dr. Moffitt gave me a gift bag with an ARMS teddy bear, resources, gift, and handwritten card. My husband and I could never thank Dr. Moffitt, Gail, and the entire ARMS staff enough. They are true miracle workers and I can’t wait for them to meet our little miracle. I would recommend ARMS to anyone and everyone.

Banner Health Clinic: Gynecology - Phoenix
I've had severe bleeding/clots everyday for almost four years and have went to several different Gyno's over the years. Each of them left me feeling like they either didn't care. I was told everything from I just needed to live with it to some women just bleed a lot, it'll go away. It was so frustrating and emotionally draining I gave up on trying to find a Doctor . After waiting another two years the bleeding/clots became so debilitating I couldn't leave my house and it was ruling my life. I decided enough was enough and started researching and reading reviews for every Doctor in Phoenix that I could find. I finally found Dr. Glassman and his patient reviews were outstanding, I called the office and the lady who answered was so polite and had a great personality, something that was so refreshing and you don't often find with Doctor's office personnel. I got an appt for the next week which was another shock, it usually takes weeks sometimes months! I went to my appt. and got in to see the Dr. within 20 min (another shock) the moment he walked into the room you could feel his positive energy. He wanted to know everything and was so caring! He immediately scheduled me for surgery and said he needed to find out why I was bleeding. Dr. Glassman is an absolutely fantastic Doctor, he has a wonderful bed side manner, he's caring and genuinely concerned about his patients. His staff is so courteous and personable, I couldn't be more thankful or happy that I found Dr. Glassman!

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!

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.

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.

My husband and I have been going to Dr Radoff for more than 15 years! He has been our trusted primary care physician. Dr Radoff is an excellent and dedicated doctor and we trust him implicitly. He is both a traditional medicine family doctor and a Homeopathic doctor and he is very knowledgeable in both realms so he can recommend the best treatment for the issue. Both he & his staff are kind and professional.

Prucz, Roni B
Dr. Prucz is an excellent plastic surgeon! I had an accident where I fell on my face on my kitchen floor. I sustained a very large cut on my forehead. Dr. Prucz did such fine work that you can barley see where he had to stitch me up. This happened only 3 months ago , i am sure in time the scar will not show at all. Dr. Prucz is EXCELLENT at what he does, I highly recommend him!!
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
