I saw Dr. Sanders after I was referred to him by my Gastroenterologists' practice for gallbladder removal. The office staff were great and extremely helpful. Both Dr. Sanders and his PA Kevin fully explained why the surgery was needed and what I could expect during the healing process, as well as being sure to inform me of the potential risks of the surgery. I was actually able to have the surgery within two weeks of my referral, which is pretty quick. Post-surgery I have felt absolutely great, better than I have all year. Part of that is down to removing the thing causing all of my pain and malaise, but a big part of it is also due to the fact that the surgery went perfectly and I was set up for a successful recovery by Dr. Sanders and his team.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Sanders. My thyroid (goiter) was so large that it wrapped around to the back of my neck. I was having difficulty swallowing and the bulge in the front of my neck was quite pronounced. Dr. Sanders shared that the protrusion out of the front of my neck was nothing compared to how far the tumor wrapped around to the back of my neck once my neck was cut open. Dr. Sanders and his team went into my neck and and skillfully removed all of my tumor. Dr. Sanders is very patient and he will work with your desires for your optimum health. I am glad that I have had this experience with this team. He comes highly recommended my the hospital staff and they all breathed easier knowing that he was the surgeon doing the procedure. When you have a thyroid/goiter, please do not trust you procedure to anyone else.

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.
