Dr. Sanders is the incredible combination of smart, skilled and caring. She is such a talented doctor, and I always feel like she takes the time to sit with me a listen to my issues. She is one of the best doctors I have ever worked with. I HIGHLY recommend her, both for an eye exam or for cataract surgery. A++
