O.ur oncologist from Compass retired so we transferred care to Dr, Anderson. Unfortunately, we found him rushed , unavailable and not particularly interested in our case. Tigard's Compass's schedulers and some of Dr.Anderson's PA very difficult to deal with as they do not know how to listen, We were very disappointed as we expected the same level of care as we received from our retired Compass oncology.

Dr. Anderson did not inform me of side effects of either the tests or treatments. As a result I was injured by a procedure that I would have avoided had he properly informed me of the risks.

Dr. Anderson and all of the staff were wonderful. Any questions were answered with clarity and patience. Everyone was patient and kind with my mom, not only was she dealing with the cancer but she also had Alzheimer’s. They answered every question (multiple times??) and never made her feel rushed.

Dr. Andersen, was very thurough and specific when speaking with me about my diagnosis. He never made me feel as if he had to get to the next appointment. At one point we had to change things up very quickly and he gave me all of my options with all of the draw backs that came with them. I trust Dr. Andersen to tell me like it is so that I am able to make the best decision for myself. I am so grateful that my experience with cancer included Dr. Andersen and his team.
