Tampa, FL |
Dr. Sanders is a genius in repairing foot and ankle fractures and injuries. I was hit pretty bad in a car accident, no fault of mine. I had bone non-reunion which he set correctly and I am on my way to having almost complete recovery. I cannot thank him enough and I cannot thank my stars enough that I found him as my doctor!
Thank you for taking the time to provide a review! Dr. Sanders is an amazing surgeon and we are please to hear you are on the way to a full recovery. We wish you the best!

Dr Sanders and his assistant gave me excellent care. Unfortunately the scheduling staff for PT is a joke. Since I live in Fort Myers, I need PT here...the last 2 weeks I have left 3 messages and even spoke to 2 different associates about scheduling the PT. I gave phone AND Fax #'s for the facility here in fort Meyers I need to go to. I call each day to see if they have received the referral yet. No luck. 2 weeks!!!! Oh but billing dept has sent a bill for the compression sox they sold me
Hi there, we are pleased to hear you received excellent care from Dr. Sanders and his assistant. I've passed your review along to his assistant in hopes she can determine your name and contact information. We apologize for the struggle it has been to retrieve your PT referral. There may have been a miscommunication here but we will get to the bottom of it!

Excellent! Dr. Sanders is the Best! My son was a passenger in a very bad car accident, in ER they we were told he might not walk again as his foot was destroyed. Thank God we got to Dr Sanders who was able to leave our son's foot as good as it was. He is simply a Geniuos. Thank God for Dr. Sanders.
