Personable and knowledgeable doctor. Efficient office operations. Minimal waiting. Enough said.
in Hermitage, TN |
I have been a patient of Dr. Sanders for more than 20 years. I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes in the waiting area. The entire staff in his office is very friendly and professional. Dr. Sanders always takes time to listen to any concerns I have and I trust his judgement in my treatment and care. He is very patient and willing to explain your options in detail and in ways that you are sure to understand. I would highly recommend him as a primary physician.

The best of the best. You are NOT treated like a number; you are not treated like a fool. Unlike many docs who finish your sentences for you and then tell you what to do, Burt is a great listener who understands that each patient (while perhaps having a problem common to others) is an individual and should be treated with an individual care plan. He is simply in a class by himself.

Dr. Sanders has been my Physician for the past 18 years, He listens to your concerns and administer the best care possible. He offers suggestions and options for your healthcare, and allows the patient to stay in control in decisions that is best for you. He explains health related questions so that you understand and most times until he feels you understand. You never leave his office wondering "what just happened". I highly recommend Dr. Sanders to anyone!

I have been a patient of Dr. Sanders longer than many marriages last. He's a wonderful physician and genuinely cares about his patients. I highly recommend him as a Primary Care Physician.
in Hendersonville, TN |
I have been with Dr. Sanders for over 20 years. He is through, very caring about his patients, stays up to date on all current and previous medical conditions, and will refer out to a specialist in a timely manner when indicated. He is very friendly, compassionate, and a very competent healthcare provider. I am a Registered Nurse, and have worked with many primary care providers, and have found Dr. Sanders to be one of the best in his treatment regimen. I HIGHLY recommend him to new patients.
