What People Say About Dr. Don Sanders, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
After meeting Dr. Don Sanders (Feb 2019), I was considering choosing him for impending hip replacement surgery. During our face to face appt prior to proceeding with surgery, we agreed ultra-sound guided cortisone hip injection was best course of action as I've not had significant pain relief from x-ray guided cortisone injections. Surprisingly, Dr. Sanders arranged x-ray guided injection & although I insisted it was not as we agreed, he would not honor word given during appt. Disappointing!

He's the tops. The very best in his field. Very professional yet personable at the same time. He is the epitome of his field. In the waiting room you hear patients speaking of the excellent outcomes of their treatment and/or surgery. He must be in the top 10 in his field. He created a new method of performing the surgery with better outcome and less down time.
