Patient Comments (4)
in Sevierville, TN |
5 years ago Dr Sanders performed a C5-C6, C6-C7 cervical fusion to fix a severely impinged nerve. I had lost function of my right arm. I woke up in recovery with full function and 5 years later I am still problem free. Everything about my experience was top notch. I have a hard time believing any of his negative comments. He is Professional, courteous and empathetic.

I'm at a 4 star right now, only because I haven't had my surgery as of let. But thus far I have been met with professionalism, courtesy and concern for my well-being. I did not feel the doctor Sanders was trying to Band-Aid my pain with pills. He clearly wanted to resolve and fix my problem in my back. I would recommend this man.

Absolutely the worst experience I've ever had with a Dr. He is very rude and demeaning and doesn't take the time of day for you to even say what issues you are having. He actually walked out of the room as I was asking him a question. I'll never go back to him. Too many other great choices out there.

My experience with Dr. Sanders was incredibly terrible. His practice felt like a pill mill. All requests for education on my spinal injury were met with failure. All questions fell on deaf ears. Relatives even came to appointments just to plead with him to discuss the options at hand. His ONLY focus was on his liability and the appointments were very contentious as we begged him for data. Avoid at ALL COSTS if you have a spinal injury. Reviewing his notes, they are simply full of mistruth.
