I was disappointed in this facilities seeming unwillingness to help with my issues. I was told that they refuse to prescribe any sort of weight loss drugs of any kind because they have a weight loss program, which is not coveredby insurance. I was also told that they do not provide any sort of mental health referrals as a rule. My girlfriend has an as-needed prescription for an antibiotic from a previous doctor that they also refused to fill. My overall impression is that this facility seems to have a lot of opinions about your healthcare and it's their way or the highway. Not exactly inviting..

I recently moved to the Scottsdale area and have had troubles trying to find a helpful physician to use for my primary care needs. I had heard great things about Camelback Healthcare and thought I would try them out. Dr. Saunderswas extremely helpful and had one of the best bed-side manners of any physician I've had. I've only seen her once but would 100% recommend her for someone looking for a new doctor. She explained every test she performed, answered all my questions, and provided additional feedback to my health needs.

When I was looking for a new PCP, I'd hoped to find someone who would take all of my existing health conditions into account. Today, Dr. Saunders showed me that that's exactly the kind of care she offers. She made mefeel like I was the only patient in the world and that I was all that mattered to her in the fifteen minutes we spent together.

Very friendly staff, overall office environment. Dr. Saunders was professional, comforting of my ailment & possible treatment options, and had my Rx sent to my local pharmacy while I was still in the office with her. I'm a huge fan of friendly efficiency.

I loved Dr. Saunders! She treated me as a whole person, not just someone who was there to check in and leave. She recommended a few things that went above and beyond what she was supposed to do. Definitely would recommend!

She was rushed and would not address all my issues. She said only had time to deal with one thing at a time and I would have to make another appointment to address other health issues.

The staff is very nice and professional. The medical assistance was just as great. The wait was a little longer than expected. But, when you see the doctor she gives you the time you need to discuss your health. She seemsto really care and addressed all my health concerns. There are not too many doctors our there like Dr. Saunders. I will be staying with this doctor. .

Dr Saunders was very professional and efficient. I enjoyed being attended by her, and will definitely see her again. However the Reception staff was rude and impatient. I was handed over ( almost thrown through the window of reception ) withpoor manners a questionnaire to be filled which I did. The two receptionist were talking about personal matter between themselves, and complaining about the amount of paper work they had to deal with. Personally I felt they were unprofessional. If they do not want to work in this Health Office, then perhaps they should stay away and look for a different type of work. Receptionists are the first persons you meet, and it creates a bad feeling about the place.

It was my first visit with Dr. Saunders and I made the appointment from reviews I read online. She was thorough, discussed my medical history, and made some initial evaluations and changes to my medications. I was pleased with the timeshe spent to get to know me and my history. I will be going back to see her as my new doctor. Anne
