Patient Comments (2)
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Sanders was extremely pleasant and actually listened to my situation before making recommendations. He took his time going over options and possible treatments that alleviated my problem. He was fully informed of the necessary steps necessary to have my insurance carrier cover any treatments. Though my carrier dragged their feet, they finally agreed to his recommendations which is no small task with my plan. This was one of the most impressive Doctors I have been in contact with.

Dr Sanders was very curt, and rude. He did not take even 3 minutes to tell me I had a torn meniscus and arthritis in my knee. The only reason he spoke to me longer than those 3 minutes was because I asked him questions about the surgery that he wanted to perform. I also asked about Pain medication( I am already on it for a chronic issue elsewhere in my body) and he told me that I shouldnt be taking narcotics for the pain in my knee, and if I wanted it, then I have a dependency on narcotics.
