Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As your physician, I strive to encompass as thorough a review of most every facet of your care during all visits. All encounters serve as opportunities to assess, inform and counsel regarding matters well beyond the presenting concern.
The finest compliment is to attain valued partnerships with my patients built upon earned trust. As healthcare options grow in complexity, these alliances help navigate us through difficult decisions and care paths. I am honored to deliver so vital a role for those I serve.
