Dr. Sanders is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in identifying problem and course of action that is most helpful. There is no guessing on anything. His experience is truly golden and gives you peace and comfort in what ge tells you.

I'm an actual patient that has had a knee replacement with Dr Sanders. He is fantastic, I could hardly walk to the mailbox and now I'm enjoying nightly walks with my wife. I don't write reviews usually. I felt I had to let people know this man is an excellent surgeon.

As a health professional I have to say Dr. Sanders is one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the business. He will "tell it like it is" but who doesn't want that when it comes to your health?!? Not only does he encourage healthy living and ways to thrive he also talks about the risks of taking too much medication. One thing many doctors don't do anymore. If you want the job done right the first time see this doctor. More needed like him in the business

This guys pompous and arrogant attitude is on display the moment he enters a room. From a condescending opening line of "Why are you here?" to ending it with a "your arm is weak because you need to work out" (I lift 1000's of pounds a day at my place of employment) this guy sorely lacks giving care with compassion. If whatever ails you does not fall in his very narrow window of possibilities, do not expect any outside the box thinking identifying the problem.

Dr. Sanders is one of the best physicians I have ever been to. In the 25 years that I have been a patient, I haven't found a doctor that I like better. He is no nonsense and truthful.
Tempe, AZ |
I found his arrogance overwhelming. When his first treatment suggestion did not work, his response to me was so what do you expect me to do? I expect a caring physician to offer options, not to turn to me for options. It was a terrible feeling to loose trust in an instance. I left the office never to return and have warned others to do the same. I have no idea of his surgical skills but I would NEVER want to have to rely on Dr. Sanders for any caring followup. Terrible experience.
