About Me

I enjoy being a surgeon because of the immediate result I see after performing procedures such as fixing a hernia or curing someone's gallbladder disease. Nothing is as gratifying as knowing how much I can help a patient by operating on an obstructio...

What People Say About Dr. Enoch Sanders Jr, MD

Had several gallbladder "attacks" (right rib/back pain) and eventually ended up in an ER/hospital, was diagnosed with infected gallbladder. After several days of antibiotics, I was able to leave the hospital, and searched for a surgeon to remove the gallbladder, and I found/selected Dr. Sanders. Dr. Sanders did the removal. It was apparently a difficult surgery, but went well, and his staff, esp. "Jacqueline" was great answering all post-surgery questions. Dr. Sanders+staff are COOL! A+++

My Mother was diagosnosed with colon cancer one of the worst days of my life. She was referred to Dr. Sanders. When we visited Dr. Sanders office he explained to us what the procedure would be . Dr. Sanders explained to us is such a manner where we understood clearly. My Mother's surgery was a great success. Dr. Sander's confidence in his self was enough for me. Dr. Sander's and his staff at his office and at the hospital was AWESOME. His intro of himself said it all. Thanks Doc. 10stars.

I had total Thyrodectomy with Dr. Sanders. He is very nice and never hesitates to spend any amount of time with the patient. Listens and explains very well. He didn't hesitate to talk to my sis-in-law who is oncologist. Right after my surgery, we are so much worried about my pathalogy reports. Dr. Sanders explained, encouraged and made me to be more brave. I felt like he is my big brother.
