Dr. Sanders is an excellent diagnostician. I had the pleasure of seeing him for a consultation after receiving five incomplete diagnosis. Within a matter of minutes he accurately identified my illness and got me on the correct medication. My only regret is that he didn’t return my phone call to allow me to thank him.

I would give him -1 Star if I could. Can not diagnose. Covers up his mistakes by writing poor review of you in the medical portal. Not a good mench! Not a good Dr!

I'm a COPD patient. Went to Dr.Sanders as my Lungs Specialist had moved somewhere. This gentleman, I can't even say doctor, told me I had no problem with my lungs and refused to give me my Advair inhaler prescription! After that I had three Pneumonia attacks and I was hospitalized all three times. All the time that he spent with me, he was filling up my name and address and info. that his assistant was supposed to do. Strange "doctor". Save your time and health, he's not worth visiting.
