Ratings for Dr. Patricia A. Sanders
Dr. Sanders was excellent, I had made an appointment for an exam on a cyst. She was extremely attentive to my situation. At my appointment she also did a yearly exam to find some issues that needed one day surgery. The office visit was prompt and she gave me her cell phone number which was very professional as a doctor that cares for you to reach her anytime with any questions. The care in the office and at the hospital was a positive experience even though we are all anxious about any kind of surgery including one day surgery. This was my first visit and being under her care as a patient was attentive and caring. I have and will recommend anyone needing a OBGYN to her office. Dr. Sanders is EXCELLENT!
I found Dr Sanders to be empathetic, kind, and the least condescending doctor I have perhaps ever seen, in my long sordid history(!!) of doctor-seeing. She comes off like a regular person and talks to you like a friend would, and is caring and very REAL. She is also knowledgable and is not the type to be too strict about Rxs, while at the same time doesn't hand them out like candy either. Totally appropriate for my situation. I felt she was a God-send; a divine appointment, and had a tear in my eye at one point as she left the room thinking about her kindness. Highly recommend!
She was able to get me in as a work in patient, and scheduled surgery for me quickly the next week. However, she didn't provide enough information about the surgery, what to expect after surgery or even greet me the day of surgery. I never "saw" her that day. My husband said he had to fish information out of her after the surgery. She was kind enough to give me her cell phone number so I could reach her the weekend before the surgery in case of any emergency. I thought the follow up visit would be more punctual, but it was not. I waited an hour in the waiting room. She did not review much with me or spend much time in the room. I had to ask if my discharges were normal and informed her I hadn't known if they were. She said another woman said the same to her, so I feel she must not communicate sufficiently with her patients. So far, I have had no problems with the procedure, but I had to do a great deal of research on my own online. I would have preferred her to take more time with me.
