Heather is a great primary care physician. She sees my family of 4 and ALWAYS seems like she has plenty of time to talk through whatever is going on. She is thorough and listens to what you say. My previous primary care Dr. seemed he had a agenda he wanted to cover each time. Her staff is quite nice. She makes it easy to be honest with her about your medical care. I or any member of my family has never had anything less than a 5 star experience at her office or with her.

Dr. Anderson is very professional, efficient, and cares a lot about the well being of her patients. I have never had to wait when I arrived for more than 10 minutes, if that! She returns communications in a timely manner.

She returns her own phone calls. She makes sure you understand her process. She is efficient and typically runs on time. She goes out of her way to take patients on short notice.
