  • 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.

First Physicians Group not supportive

First Physicians Group staff provided no help with insurance. They wanted me to pay the total cost - when I told them my insurance only requires I pay a copay, they insisted that I contact my insurance company to see how much I should pay! They were of no help. I just cant imagine what I would have done if I had been on medication or just told I had cancer. We need physician office's to help sort out insurance and do proper coding etc. Having just moved to Sarasota, I had to wait over 4 months to see the doctor as a new patient. Unfortunately, the doctor required the 1st appointment to be a "meet and greet" - which means they don't take bloodwork beforehand or allow one to send in prior bloodwork or med records that would have made the appointment useful. Just wasted my time and money reciting to me what I had written on the forms. Being single and getting up in years, I want a physicians' group like I had up north in which the staff helped you work with the confusing insurance system and the doctors explained the different options and why. I will never again make an appointment for a "meet and greet" unless its at a bar and the Doctor is paying. Be efficient and have some bloodwork and med history before you see a patient. If need an intro - have the new patient do that over the phone with a Physicians assistant or Nurse Practitioner. The Doctor herself seemed compassionate and competent, but I prefer not to go back to First Physicians until they start helping patients with insurance issues and stop meet and greets in favor of actually examining patients, including new patients. Physicians Groups especially needs to assist people who have serious diseases or on strong medication who are alone. Its too bad. I heard great things about this doctor and wanted to like her and this group for a long-term relationship. Instead I lost months of time .... I hope they improve.

Great doctor!

I was referred to Dr Sanders from a co-worker who said she is a great listener, really cares about her patients and does not rush through the appointments, but is very thorough. I recently saw her and she is wonderful. Just as my co-worker described. I felt comfortable telling her everything. Highly recommend her!
