    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.
