I didn’t get to see Dr. Anders in the office, but his staff was top notch. I’d definitely recommend this office for care and compassion. I WAS able to speak to Dr. Anders on a tele health appt. He too was top notch and explained some things that I was unsure of, from my recent diagnosis of congestive heart failure.

My initial visit was to establish myself as his patient, since I was referred to him by the VA. I didn't meet him in person, but had a telephone appointment, after visiting his office. He sounded sincere, was attentive to my health situation. Asked questions and answered all my questions and concerns. He put me 'at ease', during the conversation, taking time and not rushing me. He definitely was more concerned for my illness, than my previous private healthcare pulmonologist.

I have never met Dr. Anders in person, but I have had phone visits with him. I enjoy talking with him, he listens to me, he answers my questions, there were no questions he could not answer. He explains things to me, so that I understand. I feel better physically and mentality after following his medical instructions.
