Dr. Anderson is very attentive to our questions, explains procedures in ways we can understand and is responsive to the patient's needs.

As a retired basic scientist (I taught introductory statistics and researched how physicians learn in clinical practice), I received OTJ trained and have experience teaching "introduction to medical interviewing." Based on both that training and those experiences, and while I didn't know Dr Anderson, he was the paradigm I developed during training and sought to instill in my first year students as what they should aspire to be.

Dr Anderson doesn't laugh or smile much, but he obviously takes patient care and your condition very seriously. That is obvious. I am terrified of what my future holds, and he makes sure I understand what is best for me and my diagnosis. I realized this very quickly with Dr. Anderson. He is there to do his very best to help me, and I so appreciate that.

Dr Anderson was outstanding. He was both very professional and caring during the visit. He took time to understand the situation, and we feel very comfortable and confident with his care. After the appointment (on the same day), Dr Anderson followed up with a phone call to discuss his thoughts on treatment options. We're very appreciative of both his time and expertise in the care provided.
