Amazing, caring, attentive and knowledgeable doctor! Highly recommmend! Great staff!
in Staten Island, N.Y. |
I'm a retired police officer who has in the past 5 years have experienced some autoimmune issues related to the WTC attack. Not only did Dr.Sanders bring my RA pain under control, she was concerned regarding other screening results from the WTC monitoring center. Dr.Sanders tested my blood and urine that day and notify me the following morning that my kidneys were shutting down and to report to the local emergency room immediately.
Staten Island, NY |
Did not try and figure out my case at all. She was indifferent and a bit rude. She didn't listen to me all. I would not recommend.

She is very attentive, bright, & a good listener.

She is an excellent doctor. I trust her.
Brooklyn, NY |
Unpleasant and unwelcoming bedside manner. Felt like a business transaction, not a health consultation. Her PA was rude, uninterested, flippant, and cold. I will never go back, and will not refer.
