Tempe, Az |
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.
