What People Say About Dr. Irina Anselm, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr Anselm is responsible for our daughter being alive today. Dr Anselm has guided us through the devastating maze of progressive mitochondrial illness for the past 10 years. She predicted our daughter developing diabetes, and then supported us when a diabetes crisis occurred. She diagnosed a silent heart conduction abnormality requiring pacemaker placement before anything bad happened. Dr Anselm is the doctor my daughter most enjoys seeing. Simply put, Dr Anselm is a great, great doctor.

Dr. Anselm is a fantastic doctor and a superb human being. She has been taking care of my family for many years. She is very patient, very detail oriented.

Dr. Anselm is a fantastic doctor especially when it comes to Mitochondrial disorders. Dr. Anselm took great care of my sister who passed away recently, did so with all of her heart. My sister felt as if Dr. Anselm was a second mother to her. My sister was sick her whole life and was not aware of her having of Mito until she met Dr. Anselm. I could not have asked for a better doctor to take care of my sister. She is the type of Dr you can put all your trust in with ease. I recommend her for all.
