Jeff S – Apr 03, 2021
Dr. Saunders is as fine and professional surgeon as I have ever met. There are not enough adjectives to describe how terrific this Doctor is. I have no doubt that he saved my bride’s life. She was in bad shape when I brought her to the ER at Baltimore/Washington Medical Center. She was diagnosed with partial bowel obstruction due to four layers of her small intestine protruding into her hernia. Dr Saunders stepped up and quickly diagnosed the problem,; operated and now my wife is recovering.

I had to have hernia repair and gall bladder removed. Dr. Saunders had great bedside manners and that is hard to find these days. He was very good on his follow up with with me. I would very much recommend him to others for general surgery.
