Patient Comments (1)
in Port St. Lucie, FL |
Dr. Sanders is very patient and friendly. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable about my condition. He spent time with me sharing options along with the pros and cons of each. Although I thought my situation required a more complicated complex approach, Dr. Sanders revealed that I was a prime candidate for a less invasive approach. I felt decisions regarding my care were made with sincere care and sensitivity.
