I’m very disappointed with this office. Dr. Anderson will not troubleshoot with me to figure out my pain. I’ve been seeing him for eight months and I am much worse now than ever before. I’ve had multiple injections and other surgeries to no avail. But he’s not willing to sit and troubleshoot what could be wrong and what could be causing my pain.

He just wants to see me a whole month later and let me live in pain for a whole month I don’t understand that at all.

Came to Dr. Anderson after a car accident- he not only listened to my concerns and pain problems but also reassured me that this was normal/common in this type of wreck and offered multiple different options for me to get the most out of my recovery and feeling back to my normal self. Very kind Dr!

Lisa at the front desk is incredibly kind and patient. She takes the time to put you at ease and explains things well. I've been working with Dr. Anderson and his team for almost a year. Within that time frame I've come to trust and appreciate his team. They take the time to listen, ensuring they understand your concerns and needs. He also utilizes multiple approaches to care for your pain, working towards a long-term solution not just a temporary band-aid. I highly recommend them.

Spent some time in a follow-up with Dr. Anderson and even though he wasn't my initial treating doctor, was very quickly up to speed through some conversation and consulting my chart. Quick to recommend!

I've had migraines and associated sensory issues for 40 years. I've been through many neurologists and specialists trying to find relief and my symptoms have only gotten worse over time. So many doctors had given up on me. The one thing that Dr. Anderson and his staff said to me from the beginning is "we will not give up, we will find something that helps you". They too had to try a number of approaches but true to their word they never gave up and we have found a solution that works for me!
