Dr. Sande is a Reno native and the fifth of six children raised by Naomi and John Sande. Medicine was not exactly the career path he had in mind when he left Reno to do his undergrad at Stanford University. He initially considered a career in electrical engineering, but after further exploration, he decided to follow his father’s footsteps and entered the field of medicine. He specialized in Gastroenterology because it combined the diagnostic challenges of Internal Medicine with the hand-eye coordination skills of endoscopic procedures. Dr. Sande currently serves as the President of Gastroenterology Consultants.
Although he sees patients with all types of gastrointestinal disorders and healthy patients for colorectal cancer screening, Dr. Sande has a special clinical interest in inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, gastroesophageal reflux disease and esophageal motility disorders.
In his free time Dr. Sande enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, camping, hunting, fishing and skiing. He also has remained active in Amateur Radio, a hobby he took up at age 15.
