Dr. Sanders' Care Philosophy

As an endocrine, diabetes, hypertension, lipid, and kidney specialist, I realize that specialty care must be integrated into the overall health care and lifestyle of patients and their families. In the end, patients choose their providers and provide their care. It's all about the patients and their ability to self-manage their health. My job is to help patients make the best choices. My goal is to help them with optimal self-care management. I have a strong focus on ABCS and Self-Care Behaviors to help patients prevent cardiovascular diseases and improve overall health. ABCS are A1C, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, and Smoking. Self-care behaviors include healthy eating, being active, monitoring, taking medications, healthy coping, problem solving, reducing risks, sleeping well, stress reduction, and no smoking. Patients need to integrate their Self-Care Behaviors with their specific social determinants of health—the daily things they face in life. My job is to help them with that process.

My first visit with Dr. Sanders was so beneficial and informative it felt as though I had attended a course on diabetes geared just for me. I am learning so many practical tips on how to manage life with diabetes that are actually fun. He has the ability to explain this very complicated disease in plain English breaking it all down to an easy way to live with it. He simplifies the challenges and is so inspirational. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Sanders now in our community! Welcome!

Dr. Sanders is one of only a hand-full of doctors who spends time with you explaining the test results, the complications that COULD occur if no changes were made, how to improve your numbers with diet, exercise, education and medication. He is a very humble man who in just 2 appointments has earned my total confidence that between the two of us, we will keep my diabetes and thyroid under control. I would absolutely recommend him to any individual who suffers from diabetes or thyroid problems.

Dr. Sanders is kind, helpful, caring, and extremely knowledgeable in kidney disease (ESRD), disbeties, gastroparesis, and hypoglycemia. He takes time to answer questions and provide knowledgeable and derailed information which enables patients to make appropriate decisions in their healthcare and management of these issues.
