Dr. Anderson was amazing. 100% would recommend him to anyone I know. I went in for a fairly complex procedure that other surgeons said would be too difficult for them to do laparoscopically. Dr. Anderson opted to do a laparoscopic procedure and it went well. Post operative care was amazing and his MA Maria was fantastic and responsive. I was back on my feet in no time.

Had my gallbladder laparoscopically removed by Dr. Anderson. Surgery went well and recovery time was minimal. His staff was caring and professional. Dr. Anderson was very knowledgeable and took time to explain the procedure to me and really helped to calm any anxiety I had about it. SO GLAD that I went to him.

Hernia. Discussed options. Surgery. Follow up. Dr. Anderson spent a fair amount of time with me explaining what my options were. He discussed the science behind his method of surgery and why he chooses to use a particular method. I felt very comfortable with his explanation and the decision I made to have the surgery. The surgery went as expected. The follow up was very thorough. Will select this doctor for future issues if they arise. His staff, especially his nurse Maria, was very accommodating and went out of her way to help me schedule appointment times that worked with my schedule.
