Specialties

Dr. Christopher S Saunders has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Arrogant and doesn't care

I took my 86 year old mother to see him last week. His primary concern was with her diuretics usage. She came there to discuss her declining kidney issue that was in stage 4 kidney failure. He did not discuss this at all. When I asked him about Dialysis he stated it was not for her but younger healthier people. When I talked about her declining test numbers he didn't seem to care. Just said she does not need to see him again. We have had hospitals and doctors in both Columbus and Naples FL insist she needs to see such a doctor and this doctor doesn't want to see her again and did not think her issues were critical when she was clearly in stage 4 kidney failure. I would suggest seeing any other doctor but him he is rude and arrogant.

Worst Bedside Manner

This physician was not professional. He gave curt answers to my questions and imposes his treatment plan on his patient without regard to the patient's choice. Also was not impressed by his knowledge of current treatment protocol, perhaps because he has been practicing for so long.
