Amber embodies a lifelong dedication to patient care, influenced by her upbringing in a medical household where discussions about healthcare were common. This early exposure fostered a profound interest in various medical fields. Throughout her career, Amber’s diverse training allowed her to navigate through primary care, neurosurgery, and eventually pain management, providing her with a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of patient needs.

 Amber finds immense fulfillment in offering her patients practical solutions and interventions. She takes pride in developing meaningful relationships with her patients, striving to enhance their quality of life and assist them in achieving their goals. Witnessing patients regain mobility and quality of life, especially through innovative interventions like epidurals or spinal cord stimulators, fuels her dedication. She finds particular satisfaction in cases where transformative treatments are available, such as in the management of debilitating migraines, where the right interventions can be life changing. 

Amber’s passion extends beyond medicine; she finds joy in outdoor sports, including running, hiking, biking, and skiing. She enjoys exploring the natural beauty of the Reno-Tahoe area alongside her family and beloved dogs. 

” I have been seeing Dr. Sands for a couple years I adore her and her kindness.”
