...when I first began having issues with my constant coughing, that I just couldn’t clear my throat I went to my regular physician. we discussed it and he said I want to send you to see a pulmonologist, I said to him OK but only send me to the best one there is. the most highly rated the most highly sought after, thats Who I want to see. Meet Dr. Alpha Anders MD. The best of the best!!! I would not trust my lungs to any other doctor in town or out of town once you’ve been his patient, you will understand. He’s Worth more than five stars he’s worth 10-20 and 30 stars or more. He’s the greatest ??

I am a truly cranky patient, especially when I've been sick for a while and am feeling bad in general. I have been sick for almost a year and getting worse, still. This is the first time since I had Valley Fever 25 years ago that I've been sick, and all the conflicting diagnoses, treatments, and plans from previous doctors, as well as "see you in a month," were driving me crazy. At my visit, Dr. Anders did what I couldn't get most doctors to do: he stopped talking and listened. He explained everything to me in ways I could understand. He was patient and answered all of the questions about things that didn't make sense to me. After all that, he worked with me to figure out what treatment was best and what further testing was needed. He didn't talk down to me or behave as though I just needed to do whatever he said without question. And did I say that his office staff was professional, very kind, and knowledgeable? I finally feel like I am on my way to regaining my health!

I had an online appointment with Dr Anders to get his advice and reccomendation for a angiogram requested by Dr Major. He explained the benefits of having the procedure and gave me his reccomendation. He also asked me about my overall health and asked if I had anything else I wanted to talk about. I was very satisfied with my virtual appointment!
