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.
