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.

from Susan in CA March 13, 2018 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

My husband and I became patients of Dr Sanschagrin's in 2006. Since that time he has guided and supported us through the onset and end of our journey through our Alzheimer's family experience. His caring and understanding was phenomenal and has eased my transition into my 90's.
Throughout his decline, my husband never lost the connection he had with Dr Sanschagrin and was… See more

from Ronee in CA March 12, 2018 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

We have been in the care of Dr Sanschagrin for 17 years. He exemplifies everything one could hope for in a primary physician. He is exceptionally knowledgeable, sensitive to ones needs and incredibly patient. Knowing how medical care has been forced to provide less time and outreach for clients, we are extremely grateful to continue as members of his practice. Dr Sanschagrin has always and… See more

from Louise in CA March 6, 2018 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

Dr. Sanschagrin is the best! Head and shoulders above the rest.
So many doctors along life's way. I quit all the rest but he's here to stay.
From prescriptions to bandages, this doctor always manages
To know what to do be it heartburn or flu
So kudos to Andre who cares for so many
It's pricey, but hey! It's worth every penney

from Helen in CA March 5, 2018 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

Dr. Sanschagrin has been my doctor for over 15 years now. He is the most caring, generous with his time, and most knowledgeable person I know in the medical world we have today. Friends say about their doctor, he didn't get back to me and I think, Dr. S always does almost immediately. His front staff and nurses, know us and know that we seldom call because we have been going so long to… See more

from Maurine in CA March 2, 2018 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Andre Sanschagrin for about six years now. He is always willing to take the time to show personal concern for every situation in every office visit and every phone call. He explains all the details and makes helpful suggestions, allowing me the option to choose from his recommendations. His assistants and office staff are professional, proficient and friendly,… See more

from Timothy in CA March 2, 2018 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

Dr. Sanschagrin really listens to his patients. I know that sounds cliche but my wife and I have remarked to one another that Dr. Sanschagrin doesn't make one feel that he is rushed for time (although I am sure he is). He listens, analyzes, comments and then recommends a treatment schedule once he has thoroughly considered the options. All that and a nice man on top of it!

from Craig in CA March 1, 2018 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

Andre Sanschagrin has been my primary physician since about 2004. I was seeing him years before he joined MDVIP. My initial impression of him is one that has remained with me ever since our first meeting. He was quite unique in my opinion because he took as much time with me as I needed as was a very attentive and concerned listener. He is an excellent GP and that's why I've stayed… See more

I have enjoyed being Dr. Sanschagrin's patient for 3 or 4 years. As I age I find I depend on him more each year. I especially like that when he gets reports he calls me on the phone to tell me the results and what we can do about any of it.
