Dr Andersen did a lumbar laminectomy on my lower back to relieve pressure and pain causing great difficulty in walking or standing. The surgery was a huge success! Dr Andersen took time with my questions prior to surgery and explained the procedure in terms I could understand. I had great confidence in him from the first office visit. The entire staff treated me with respect and caring. Always courteous and understanding.

I was diagnosed with chiari last year. Anderson did notice a mistake on the radiology report on my MRI that made me a surgical canidate. However it went down hill quick from there. He had no patience or bedside manner to explain the peocedure to myself or my family. He refused testing for commonly connected conditions that cause complications, put me on ibuprofen 5 days after brain surgery and has refused to do any follow up care ( even though I got a csf leak) he left me fighting for my life
