Getting to Know Dr. Sandler


My mother was an artist, my dad was a nuclear chemist ... my solution was to become a peacemaker. Blend together a fierce desire to make a difference, a desire to live outside the box, a willingness to learn, and then add an equal portion of empathy ... That is my story — always a balancing act between art and science. I have dedicated myself to becoming the best doctor I can, and have followed my own inner guidance to answer that calling.
