Dr Lisa Sardanopoli is the most knowledgable, compassionate, caring physician I have ever had in my life! (I'm 71 now). She has literally saved my life twice now! On 12/26/22, I had run myself into the ground & called Dr Lisa with a high temp, difficulty breathing & fatigue. She said get to my office now (ERs were overflowing with patients!) I was x-rayed, blood work taken and had bilateral atelectasis of my lungs - I was very sick. She instructed my husband and I what to do (including insulin shots, nebulizers, etc) and stressed the importance of taking good care of me because I was very sick. I did and gratefully recovered in a few weeks. On 2/18/24, I was packing my suitcase for a total shoulder replacement surgery on 2/21 (s/p a disastrous fall) when I had sudden onset 104 temp, violent shaking and horrible right sided flank pain. No prior symptoms! I called her cell & she said get to the ER STAT. I had a life threatening event of sepsis from a kidney stone and ended up in the hospital for 4 days with emergency surgery for a stent. I was actually trying to push thru the pain because I didn't want my surgery canceled! (foolish me but I never had anything like this). Dr Lisa followed up with me daily for my progress. She really takes time to get to know her patients and sincerely cares about them (me included!) She is very thorough and looks at everything health related to keep me healthy and well. Dr Lisa is the best physician ever! SO thankful my best friend referred her to me!
