A native of Northeast Ohio, Dr. Sandhu is very happy to be back in Olmsted Township, where he lives with his wife and daughter. He looks forward to welcoming his new patients. “I treat each patient like they are a family member, “ says Dr. Sandhu. “My philosophy as a physician is that I’m here to listen, find out what’s wrong and get you moving toward the best possible outcome.”
In addition, he will focus on treating patients for a variety of non-surgical orthopedic and sports medicine issues. His areas of expertise also include arthritis, tendonitis, sprains, strains, bursitis and fractures (broken bones).
