Dr Sanderson is an excellent Surgeon. He put me at ease in our first appointment and I went into surgery with confidence not at all apprehensive. The results of my surgery is amazing and I would highly recommend Dr Sanderson his bedside manner is wonderful and caring. The staff in his office were absolutely amazing. Thank You!

Appears to resent patients with minor problems taking up his time. A large white circle under MY eyebrow he said was small. Perhaps on his eye it would be large. I was referred to him by my dermatologist. Several precancerous growths she removed, this one being too close to the eye, she sent me to Dr. Sanderson. He claimed he could find nothing, then asked me to point to it's location. By his assistant (He fled quickly, grimacing) I'm to press hot water q-tips to it if it swells up again.

Dr. Sanderson's office is the epitome of what a doctor's office should be. They are warm and welcoming, very efficient and exceptional at their jobs. Dr. Sanderson and his assistants made me aware of my options and explained fully what needed to be done in a perfectly concise yet calming manner. Surgery on my tear duct was very successful. Front office staff is friendly and helpful. So rarely does it feel good to give over your hard earned money, but this office deserved every penny. Thank you!

Dr Sanderson is truly amazing. He assessed my condition and explained, in detail, how he would proceed to correct it. I am so pleased my friend suggested I consult him, and I am super pleased with my results. The man is an artist
