Patient Comments (6)
in Townville, SC |
Waited an hour and a half for a return appointment and finally left his office in frustration without seeing him. No explanation was given nor was apology offered. He was unable to definitively diagnose the problem with swelling in my hand. Seemed unsure when he realized there was no broken bone.

Dr. Saunders was absolutely fantastic. My wife and I really liked him, and would without a doubt recommend him to ANYONE needing an orthopedic doctor. Injuring yourself is never positive and he made it bearable. He was upfront & honest about what he felt was best for me, personally. He explained things & answered ALL questions and concerns we had. His little nurse that helps him was a complete sweetheart. And called after to check in on me, which is rare of an office. 10 starts out of 5!!!
in Central, SC |
Very attentive and listens to patients. I was very impressed with his immediate knowledge of the problem I was having, and explained it in a way I can understand it. He is also pretty easy on the eyes. :) I will say, however, that I overheard some of the front office staff speaking negatively about another staff member AS WELL AS DR. SAUNDERS, which I thought was very unprofessional , but it did not impact my personal opinion of him or his personal assistant.

Needed urgent appointment for my grandmother and was seen very quickly. She is a very high surgery risk and he was able to recommend alternative treatment that was very effective. Amazing assistant- very friendly. Highly recommended!
in Pendleton, SC |
Wonderful bedside manner and staff! Highly recommended to other family and friends
I have seen Dr. Saunders several times after I fell and broke my wrist a few months ago. He is always very kind and caring and has always made me feel confident that he truly cares for what's best for his patients. Plus the two nurses that work with him are always incredibly kind and great about answering all of the questions I've had. I'd definitely recommend him!
