Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sanders "Our practice is based on individualized care of each paitent. Nonsurgical treatments are utilized before surgical treatments. Our surgical treatments are evidence based and time tested. I do not follow untested trends promoted for profit by the medical supply industry. When surgery is performed we use reason and minimally traumatic technique over excessive reliance on technology - judging our results on the time it takes our patients to return to normal life and the sports/activities they enjoy."

Hands down the worst, least helpful, & most pessimistic doctor I've ever seen. His diagnosis was a very serious one where surgery I was told would be the only option for me if I wanted to continue being an active person. It was a soul crushing diagnosis he showed no sympathy for so I went to...more

This doctor is nothing but a scam artist. He will hard sell you into unnecessary surgery and get you to the most expensive laboratory to do different testing. He sent me to do a MRI and an X-ray that cost $1,100. The doctor office visit alone cost $375. Please stay away from him.

He talked alot about himself and had lots of stories to tell. He talked down to me and my daughter about our injury to try to make us feel like we knew nothing and he knew everything. He accused us of things he had no business saying. He wanted to do alot of tests and surgeries on both of us...more
