Biography

Daniel Sanders, PA-C, was inspired to pursue a career as a physician assistant after seeing his father suffer from a chronic disease that left him disabled. "Witnessing the great care he received from his medical providers made me want to help other people who find themselves in similar difficult circumstances," says Daniel. 

Daniel believes his most important role as a health care provider is to listen to his patients and understand their needs. "I emphasize honesty with my patients," he said. "I want to help people reach their goals and prevent disease when possible."

After earning his bachelor's degree in business administration from Portland State University, Daniel completed his Master of Physician Assistant Studies degree from Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. He is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. 

Daniel and his wife love living in the Willamette Valley and enjoy camping with their dog. In his free time, Daniel enjoys painting, woodworking, and outdoor activities.

Very nice provider and made [...] feel at ease. However, 2 hours after visit, we were STILL waiting at our pharmacy for the office to phone in the prescription. Also, we were told we would get another prescription for a generic medicine. On the paper we were given, we were told instead to purchase an over the counter item. The two instructions did not match. Turns out the generic wasn't covered by our plan, which is fine, but we had to go through a bunch of frustration to discover we should have bought the over the counter. Clearer verbal instructions from the provider would have been very helpful and timely submission of fax to our pharmacy would have saved us hours of waiting time. [...]

He did not or either did not know how to follow through with the referrals that were required in order to follow up with other doctors or services that I needed after a car accident. He seemed to be very caring and sensitive to my needs but I eventually had to have someone else fax the referrals to the services I had requested.
