Dr Anderson is great. Very knowledgeable yet perhaps needs to be more personable. My husband was present yet didn’t get to introduce him as he launched right into my labs and questions about my last cycle etc. I felt I had to interrupt him to get clear on what was being said. Slow him down for better understanding. He was understanding of my insomnia , neuropathy and anxiety issues and recommended RX’s after following up with the pharmacy team for best results. I appreciated that. The team has been great in helping me cope with this disease. Thank you.

Superior physician
Extremely thorough, very detail oriented. I received a huge notebook with all relevant information about my history and treatment, complete with handwritten notes. I feel like I am receiving the best possible care here. His personality is a bit chilly but I don’t need to be best friends with my oncologist.

I have been under Dr. Andersen's care since September 2020. He and his team have been very supportive and caring in my treatment. He/They have kept me on track with all of the various procedures necessary to bring me to cancer free. I can ask any questions I have and they are answered. I feel confident in his care and that of the rest of the team. I would recommend him/them to anyone in need of a competent oncologist.
