    Dr Anderson was cold and indifferent to my condition, pushing surgery or get out of my office attitude. After surgery, she ordered the wrong xrays so I had to go take them again. When she saw that other vertebre were compromised in my accident she said "oh...had I seen that before, I would've operated on it when I was in there....then with a smirk she looked at me and said..."but you can always have another surgery". Do not go to this surgeon. There are better with much nicer bed side manor.
