my doctor was amazing. I have never felt more compassion and connection from a health care provider. she treated me as a human, kept me informed, really listened, and actually discussed and developed my health plan of action together.

Between my first IUD placed and this current one... night and day difference. This visit had a LOT less pain during placement and after. Dr Sandblom´s bedside manor is always spectacular, I love having real conversations with my Dr. I wont go to any one but Dr Sandblom again!

May 2016
I have already recommended Dr Sandblom to a friend because of the exceptional care she provides. I especially appreciate her "realness". She´s straightforward, yet caring. She clearly outlined the care options and included me in the decision. I felt confident in my choice. Also, she went the extra mile to numb me before my IUD. What a difference that made! The procedure was bearable and far better than the experience I had at another hospital last time.
