If you are afraid to have an injection in your shoulder or knee, now is the time to call Dr. Sanders. He is great. Most of the time I see Michael, he is a great PA. I can't count the numberof injections Michael has given me and no pain!

I have been with Dr. Sanders for 20 years now and I can't imagine going to any other orthopedist! He is caring, takes time to explain everything, lets you ask all the questions you want, he doesn't jump straight to surgery,but tries other options first, and he is exceedingly skilled in the art and science of orthopedics. I have had 4 surgeries with him, and I am beyond thankful for this man, his skillful hands, and his caring manner.

Friendly office staff. Jimmy was helpful in getting my vitals and collecting pertinent information. Dr. Sanders listened to my complaints, performed a thorough examination, and addressed my concerns with a variety of treatment options.We started on time and we’re finished in less than 45 minutes!! (Unheard of in the Ortho world). Couldn’t be happier or recommend this team more strongly. So excited they will be opening up new location in Southlake very soon.

After I meet Dr Sanders the wait was worth it. I appreciate him going over my questions and helping me to understand whats really going on and steps he feels will make it better before surgery. I felt he really didcare. You know when its' not about money,and he cares about your health. Did not just say big words/turns so only he knew what is going on with me he went over it on the chart and on monitor. I went to my wrist doctor and still do not know what's going on really.

Dr. Sanders is absolutely wonderful. He is never in a hurry with you and takes his time to make sure you understand everything. He is very soft spoken and caring. He has replaced both of my hips and one knee. Everythingcame out perfect. You have to do your part and be very consistent with your rehab after the surgery, but if you are, it will be so rewarding for you.
