Ratings for Dr. James T Sandwich
We sought out Fayette Area Dermatology to have my son's warts removed. We went 4 times to have this issue resolved. Upon getting my bill they charged me 3 times for removing 15 or more warts. My son did not have that many warts. Also, I had an appointment to fix an issue with my elbow. During one of my son's appointments the PA asked me how my elbow was doing. They charged me for an office visit even though I did not even have a follow up appointment, nor did my elbow get looked at while we were in there. When I tried to explain the situation to Heather, the office manager, she did not help and basically called me a liar. And to top it off my son still has warts! We will be seeking another dermatologist.
These people must be getting compensation for rating Sandwich nicely. He is very personable and nice, which is an excellent distraction when he makes a mistake. I had a tiny mole scraped off by his assistant who didn't even tell me she was going to remove it. Upon "testing" Sandwich tells me the roots need to be removed. So he does the procedure, laughing and joking the whole time, which might be why the stitches started to come out a week later sticking straight up into the air! I return to his griffin office and see his colleague who tells me to put RetinA on it (which I do and it burns my skin off!!) although it is oozing green at this point. Unbelievable. Then it turns into an inch and a half gaping hole in my body and I have to return to him. He does nothing to it, says a fiber from my bra must have infected it, and tells me "at least no one will see the scar" because it was on my upper breast. This was 8 years ago and I still cannot believe a doctor could react this way to a huge problem he created. I was too young at time to know my malpractice options and I have to assume he knew this. So for six months I bandaged this wound and treated it myself until it healed leaving me with a nasty 3" x 1" scar. I showed the medical records to another dermatologist who said the mole wasn't even an issue. I truly believe he messed up my procedure and instead of making it right he wiped his hands clean of it and hoped I didn't report him. Shame on him. He changed me forever in a bad way and I will always have to think of him when I see the scar. Oh but who will see it anyway, right!!?! Please use another dermatologist.
Dr. Sandwich and his office staff are real superstars. He is willing to listen to every complaint and spends the time needed to answer all my questions and concerns. His staff is always helpful and I'm always greeted with a smile. I would recommend him and any other provider in his practice. They are all amazing!
Wonderful experience. Dr. Sandwich saw my son within 5 minutes of our appointment time. He was very personable and knowledgeable. He asked if we had any questions and answered the one we did to our satisfaction. His staff made sure they repeated his instructions and provided us with samples of medication. My only difficulty was in getting an appointment specifically with him, although there are other providers in the practice that are available.
Dr. Sandwich and his staff are incredible. I had a fatty tumor removed, it was on lower cheek and he did an amazing job. no pain. i was afraid bcuz this had been on my face for a little over 10 years and had grown very large. the scar is not even an half inch long. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a dermatologist as a matter of fact i just recommended someone to him today 1/30/12.
