Great Doctor!
in Mount Juliet, TN |
Doctor Anderson and his staff are the best. It is always easy to get thru to them in case of an unscheduled need and when I get checked in and go back to his waiting area, it is never more than five minutes until his nurse is ready for me. Dr. Anderson always seems to have time for anything I need to discuss with him and his prescriptions always seem to take care of my needs.
in Nashville, TN |
I always receive excellent service and treatment from Dr. John Anderson and the Frist Clinic staff. When I arrive I am seen at my appointment time, and when I leave I know that I have received exceptional medical care. For anyone looking for a primary care physician in the Nashville area, I highly recommend Dr. Anderson.

As always the wait time was minimal and staff friendly and confident. Dr. Anderson always makes you feel asyou are the only one and that he is not in a hurry. May ask all the questions you have and get an answer.
in Goodlettsville, TN |
I have been going to Dr. Anderson for over twenty years and I would rank Dr. Anderson number one as a Primary Care Physician in Tennessee and the South Eastern United States. Dr. Anderson is the best of the best. His mannerism, professionalism, his knowledge of the latest procedures and medications, but most importantly he cares about his patients. What also makes Dr. Anderson the best, he is easy to talk to and his explanations are well understood. Dr. Anderson staff is top notch as well.
in Hendersonville, TN |
I have been a patient of Dr Anderson for many years. I appreciate him always taking the time to answer my questions and offer good advice. He is concerned about my health and I appreciate the great care he gives me. I am happy to recommend him to my family and friends. He is a great doctor and he will not keep you waiting past your appointment time. I find this to be a valuable quality in him. He will treat you like he would like to be treated. I am blessed to have him as PCP. Linda Griffin

I have been a patient of Dr. Anderson's for a long while. I have never had a bad experience at the Frist Clinic. The check in process is smooth and I've never had to wait a long time to be seen. The nurses and office people are courteous and helpful. I will never willingly change providers.
in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Anderson has been my primary care physician since 1998. He is honest, trustworthy and caring. Excellent bedside manner. No bull from this physician - he will set you straight in a heartbeat. I trust his judgement and value his referrals for specialists. Dr. Anderson is conservative and does not believe in running tests unless it is necessary. His long-time nurses are outstanding. Both ladies follow up with patients, usually the same day you call.
