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.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

I require at least an hr for my dr visits. it is hard for me to articulate my needs or issues at times its hard for me to stay on topic. not sure at times what and where the dr is heading in some of my refurals but i try to undrestand. i cant and dont like being rushed thats where mistakes are made yes they ard always nice but imnot a person to be codled or panderd just to get me in and out of the office just to meet quota. so if you need any advice : slow down and listen and know your paisents medical history thoroughly before you step into the room

I was impressed with the integrated care at Newberg Providence. They immediately sent in a PT for my hip injury for diagnosis, treatment, and recommendations for future stretching and strengthening. No need to schedule another appointment with PT or longer term PT sessions. We got right to the problem with the right person. Great Program!

There have been multiple health care providers that I have seen that I have had issues with. They frequently do not give straightforward answers to my questions. they give very round about explanations and possibilities, and then only write the straightforward answer on their prescription sheet that they print. This was the case with Daniel Saunders as well. He never told me that I had a sinus infection, I read it on the paper after my visit. I appreciate the explanations, but I don't enjoy leaving the office without a straightforward answer to why I came in.
