Dr. Anderson was incredibly helpful in explaining what was going on with my body. He showed me images of my body and explained them helpfully. He fully discussed what we were viewing and what options I had surgically. It was all very helpful. If I forgot to ask something, I was able to ask via my health with Dr. Anderson or his nurse.

This was the best doctor's appointment I've ever had. I have never had a doctor spend so much time explaining and discussing the problem. He demonstrated excellent knowledge about the issues I asked about. He provided visuals for explanation. Dr. Anderson is clearly an expert in his field, but even so, it did not feel like he needed to rush me out or make decisions for me. He really sat with my husband and I and let us think through all the options with as much information as possible. I am very grateful to be in his care.
