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 Leon & Randie in CA March 11, 2020 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

We are in our late 70s and, not surprisingly, have more health issues then our earlier years. Dr. Sanschagrin Has been our primary doctor long before MDVIP. He has an excellent relationship with an excellent network of specialists, which we have taken advantage of. I don’t have one particular story but MDVIP has made it possible for him to spend all the time necessary with all our health… See more

from Grace in CA March 11, 2020 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

I cannot share a dramatic intervention or life saving event from Doctor Sanschagrin. What I can share is an on-going relationship in which he carefully explains the things that are happening to my aging body, the interventions needed, and the reasons for such. He also respects my occasional "No" to a suggested test or treatment, accepting my right to have a voice in my own health… See more

from Don in CA March 5, 2020 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

I am indeed beholden to Dr, Sanschagrin for his care and attention to my medical. problems, of which there were many over the past fifteen years. He undoubtedly surpassed any of my previous primary doctors. His care, concern and attention went beyond any that I had previously experienced. I thank him!

from Chuny Yun also known as Chris in CA March 3, 2020 for Andre R. Sanschagrin, MD

There should be a better word than “ spoiled ” to appropriately describe how I feel about my doctor treated me: “ I am spoiled by my doctor! ”

Although he never said: “ Look, at your age of Nine O, this is Normal! ” Some times I feel that I am going to disintegrate, something is wrong, here and there, I complain, but he always find enough time to explain to me, with doctors of… See more

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
