Patient reviews for Dr. Samuel Sanders
Dr. Sanders has been awesome diagnosing my knee issues and helping me with my recovery. Right away he and his team made me feel comfortable and heard. It was clear during my follow-up that he cares about his patients and knows who you are when you walk into the room. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
It was brey nice. Good to have a doctor that will talk and listen to you.
Dr. Sanders seemed very knowledegable and quickly grasped the medical issue I had come for and what my goal was. Had a good manner with me and took time to listen. Wants an MRI done before suggesting any further treatment. Only complaint is that after giving my medical history on a tablet before being seen, a nurse came in and then asked all the same questions....
Office staff very friendly. Dr. Sanders was kind and took his time to explain everything to me. He was great
Friendly staff, clean facilities very informative
Very thorough and caring demeanor!
Professional and helpful! Really listens to patients, and works to get you back to regular activity
GWOG and the staff is outstanding! My family has been patients for years. Would NEVER go anywhere else.
Really wonderful, highly recommend. The staff were all very friendly and Dr. Sanders was fantastic. He was efficient, answered all my questions and had a great bedside manner. Will be going to him for any other ortho related problems i have!
Thorough exam and explanation of diagnosis and treatment options. Practice seemed well organized and efficient.
Great doctor - lived up to all the reviews I read. Very knowledgeable but efficient.
He was amazing, funny and attentive. He maintained eye contact (which is essential to me. Too many doctors are steering at computer screens and not the patient), explained everything eloquently and efficiently.
Dr. Sanders was incredibly professional and immediately established trust with his knowledge. Highly recommend him!
Amazing staff and expert advice from Dr. Sanders.
This Doctor has patience and is very understanding which is a rare find and we need more doctors like him! Excellent service!
The visit went well, I just think that the assistant should telll the doctor before entering the room why the patient is there and what is the problem.
Great visit. Dr. Sanders listened very closely, asked a few of his own questions, then knew exactly which points to test during a quick exam. Very efficient, but still took the time to listen to all of my questions.
Dr. Sanders was the quickest doctor I have ever had an appointment with. He treated my wrist issues with speed and accuracy and will be doing a follow up soon to make sure every thing is in order.
Pleasant and professional
Great Doc. He sat down and actually listened to me unlike the last doctor. Dr. Samuel spent time reviewing the MRI that I brought in and he found some issues the other Dr. missed. He had a solid plan in place for getting my situation treated. He is all around a great guy and was a great visit.
When we arrived the office did not have any record of my appointment. I showed them the ZocDoc confirmation text and eventually, she was able to find the appointment but it had not made it to their schedule. As a result, we waited for 50 minutes before being seen as they had to fit us in. I also had to fill out all the paperwork that I had already filled out on ZocDoc. There seems to be a disconnect between ZocDoc and the front desk scheduling system. Dr. Sanders was WELL WORTH waiting for & I'm grateful he was able to fit us in despite the scheduling issue. Highly recommend Dr. Sanders.
I have seen 7+ knee specialist over the last 15 years, most of them professional sports doctors. Dr. Sanders is one of the top! He is empathetic and devotes his full attention to you.
As usual -- excellent! Thank you dr Sanders.
The practice and the doctor are ready to help with a direct and caring approach.
He continues to be an excellent doctor
Very excellent “bedside manner”
Loved Meeting Dr. Sanders. He was really helpful and patient in explaining things!
Dr. Sanders and his staff were all great. They took the time to listen and explained things well. It was an efficient visit to get my diagnosis. The only problem was the offices integration with Zocdoc. The office does not look at the check-in information filled out on Zocdoc and requires you to fill our everything again using their tablet on arrival. This is redundant, annoying, and a waste of patient time.
In spite of the fact that the office was extremely busy, this practice runs a tight ship. They are extremely efficient, in all respects. From collecting history, to taking xrays, and briefing the physician prior to seeing the patient, everything always runs smoothly.
Very good, very detailed in his explanations.
I’ve been having neck and back issues so I went to see Dr. Sanders due to all the great reviews, and they’re spot on! He’s incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, and has the best bed side manner ever. I highly recommend seeing him for any orthopedic needs you may have.
The nurses and doctor were very nice, polite, and courteous. Dr. Samuel was very attentive and curious about my problem...and very punctual. I was pleasantly surprised how efficiently they run the practice, not wasting your time waiting around. It took less than an hour to do everything (new patient), including X-rays. I look forward to my follow up.
It was very through and quick which was very appreciated
Great bedside manner. Personable and charming. Additionally, he was extremely comprehensive with his exam.
Great explained the condition, showed me the x-ray involved my toe. Honest about not his expertise and referred me.
Dr Sanders is always very good and knows what he wants from a visit and how to treat the problem
Very personable and excellent evauation
Had great news for me so that is always a plus. But he set realistic expectations for me in terms of getting back to being cleared for sports.
He is the best. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Sanders listens really well and connects each time with my teenage son. He has given us great advice and taken care of our health issues each time. I highly recommend him.
He is always straight to the point and helps me understand my diagnosis. His bedside manner is always pleasant.
He was very caring and professional. I'm confident I will recover the treatment I need for my shoulder from this office.
Very impressed wish the Dr and staff.
Excellent visit. The doc provided a very clear analysis of the results and gave us some new information as well. He was polite, and very kind.
I think Dr. Sanders actually takes the time and listens to my issues and helps me solve them in the most compassionate way ever. I’ll forever be a patient with him if any further issues arise. Thanks !
