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.

He is extremely caring and compassionate. I even e-mailed him when I developed

About 22 years ago, we moved from the Northeast to the Southwest. My sister had MS and I worried that the west coast would not have the doctors I had back East. But,
I was certainly mistaken. Dr. Sanschagrin not only was knowledgeable enough to help her, he was just the greatest gift we three sisters could have received. Today I am almost 88 years old and I tell everyone that he is… See more
