Dr. Dietrich was recommended by my physical therapist and I'm glad she did. He was very professional, straight forward in his explanations and was able to get me in to have caudal injection very quickly. My pain has gone from a 9 to a 2 at this time. Thank you so much for helping me!

My Grandmother had advanced Parkinson’s disease, and Everson failed to notice or diagnose it regardless of how many times she saw him. Her optometrist was the first one to notice her advanced symptoms after spending 5 minutes with her in an exam toom.

Uncaring and smug. He had a bad attitude and was not knowledgeable about my condition at all. I would not revisit this practitioner or recommend him.

I've been with Dr. Anderson for several years and will continue my treatments with him. He suggests other avenues to take when I've tried just about everything else. He listens to me and really seems to care. Dr. Anderson is one to take max time with me and even answers my husbands questions too.

I put all my trust in the hands of Dr Anderson. Any decisions he makes to assure me of pain relief is his #1 goal. As for me my opinion is he's not God but, God has his hands in my care. Respectfully, Joseph Greenwald,Jr.
