Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Andersen "Dr. Andersen is a medical oncologist and the Director of Compass Breast Specialists. He has advanced subspecialty expertise in breast cancer, gastrointestinal and lung cancers. Because he believes better outcomes are achieved when patients understand and embrace their care, his practice philosophy is education-based and very collaborative. During consultation, he explains his patients diagnosis, their disease stage, the standard of care based on the data, and whether special circumstances exist to deviate from the standard of care. His patients love the handouts and diagrams he provides and often comment on his ability to present complex issues in an understandable way. In his spare time, Dr. Andersen has a busy family life with his wife and three children. He enjoys his daily trip to the gym, skiing, biking and hiking."

I've gone to Dr Anderson for ten years and think he and his staff is wonderful!

He is cold and dismissive

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.
