Dr Saunders saw me immediately after hysterectomy surgery, (Oct 2018). I expressed concern with a large bulge above my belly button. She assured me it was only swelling from the robotic surgery and would go away. At 2 and 6 week follow ups I again expressed concern, as the bulge had not shrunk. She still said don't worry it will go away! In Feb 2019 she finally admitted I have hernias! I now need another surgery for large hernia(s) that she denied until they were very large! Don't trust her!

Dr. Saunders has been amazing. I came to her for a second opinion on a hysterectomy. The 1st Dr. wanted to cut me all the way open. She was confident she could help me without completely cutting me open and she did. One week later I feel amazing and was up and ready to go by day 2. I also had A LOT of scar tissue that was causing issues. She freed me of that as well. Im thankful for her skill and knowledgeable as a doctor. I would recommend to anyone!

She poked a hole in my bladder after my hysterectomy, so I had to have a second surgery to fix it, I went to UT and they fixed it. She was ready to get me out the door , would have been nice if she would have been concerned enough to call me and ask how I was doing.

I had an awful. Experience with her went in for bladder mesh now a year later i can hardly walk do to her not removing all of the mesh it got inbedded in the nerve in my left thigh. Sad thing is doctors get by with harming patients and never have to pay for it.
