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.
