Most thorough eye exam I have ever had. My vision is very important to me and I appreciate being worked in to make sure there were no serious issues. Cannot thank you enough.
Dr. Saunders is the best! He is very thorough and goes the extra mile is following up with me and keeping a close watch on my condition. I trust him.
Dr. Sanders is outstanding!
I trust Dr. Saunders knows what he´s doing. However, I would like an eye doctor who was more personable.
I have cornea erosion so medication given - Pretty straight forward - Pleased with Dr. Saunders in & out of office quickly - I liked that.
I have the highest regard for DR> Saunders and feel he has great concern for best treatment of my eyes!
Excellent explanations, very responsive to my request for less medication to cause eye-dilation.
Dr. Saunders was great - but he is definitely not "warm & fuzzy." He is VERY quick & to the point which is fine as long as that´s OK with the patient -> I didn´t care so it was fine.
Our providers are above and beyond expectations.
Dr. Saunders was professional, but pleasant. I was very comfortable with him, and had confidence in his expertise.
Amazing as a doctor and as a person! Will recommend to my patients! I´m an interpreter also for VM.
My first experience and I got a little scared & he just kept saying put your head here & would hold my head.
Dr. Saunders is very attentive and listens carefully to concerns. He is always kind and reassuring.
I came in with an issue that was caused extra time and tests. I thought I might have to come back another day if tests were needed, and was happy to do that. But everyone just took care of the issue right then. I was given new directions about how to handle my situation and I will have follow-ups. I don´t know what more I could have asked for.
recommend VM and all of its services and providers whenever I have the opportunity
Completely satisfied & confident in Dr. Saunders!
He makes everything so pleasant that I do not mind my eye appointments anymore. The Doctor remembers little bits of information about one so that you feel that he does remember you. Excellent!
my care provider is EXCELLENT!! I hope VM appreciates the effort that they give to the patient´s.
He was very courteous and the follow up was wonderful!
Great provider knowledgeable explained any problem in detail.
I highly recommend Dr. Saunders. He is knowledgeable, professional, and has terrific ´bedside manner´.
Dr. T. Saunders is an excellent doctor, he should be head of a department!!
Very serious...and may have a tendency no take into consideration entire eye problem issue...more questions should be asked to link to final results or results at actual time. Especially if care give in the past not linked to V.M.
Dr. Saunders was very good in every way.
He was very helpfull gave me medicine I needed for my eyes, that day they starting feeling much better and they are on the mend.
Information is exchanged just the way I would want.
Dr .Saunder´s office is very flexible with my schedule and are proactive. Dr. Saunders has been very vigilante has works communicates well with Dr.Shey´s downtown.
I have already recommended to a few of my friends .
Talks too fast for older people.
