I have been seeing Dr. Saunders for 10 years. I respect his knowledge and understanding of my medical issues. Dr. Saunders' concern for my well being as a patient exceeds all others. He is a wonderful doctor who exhibits patience, presence and the ability to really listen while assessing a medical situation. I have found Dr. Saunders to always be direct and up front with everything including any options for treatment.

After about 18+ years of going to an Ortho doctor who I loved I found myself beginning to loose faith in my current Doctor. So in my painfully long search for a new doctor I ran across Dr Jan Saunders. After the first visit my wife and I fell in love with him. His professionalism, knowledge and patient concern for well being is unmatched. He is a wonderful Doctor/surgeon and his patience and understanding exceeds all others. He gives you your options and is upfront with everything. Thank you A++

Dr. Saunders takes time to really listen to me. He explains things thoughly and to my understanding. Great Dr!

Dr. Saunders delivers quality care if you can get in to see him. I have seen him over the last 2 years for knee injections (three occasions), which last me 9-12 months. Unfortunately, his staff and administrative personnel are not helpful, semi-rude, don't return calls, don't answer calls, and could care less if you have to find another doctor since Dr. Saunders is so incredibly busy, trying to serve offices all over the area. Too much, you do not need all of that money. Slow down and improve th

I have had 2 knee replacements and shoulder surgery by Dr. Saunders. He came highly recommended by my family doctor many years ago and now I would highly recommend him as your surgeon. He has a great bedside manner and a sense of humor. He is extremely caring and spends a great deal of time with his patients. He's the best!!!!
