I saw Dr. Anderson not to long ago. I went to see him for my first break ever in my life and he was no help. My cast he gave me was so bad i had to return and get a new one. i felt my appointment was rushed and i got no info for my break. I could go on and on but its hard to explain my whole experience.

Dr. Andersen did not answer any of my questions. He was over 20 minutes late for my appointment and I spent 5 minutes being "examined" by him. To say I am dissatisfied is an understatement!! I have never been treated so rudely!

Aside from being arrogant & rude. There was a hugely crucial lack of communication-- Treatment resulted in missed work which was not at all relayed before or after treatment. Patient care communication could be improved immensely.

If you like an arrogant pompous doctor - Dr. Anderson is your man If you want a doctor to tell your young daughter she is fat and out of shape - Dr. Anderon is your man If you want a doctor to presume a diagnosis with no physical exam and then dismiss you - Dr. Anderson is your man If you want thorough doctor with basic bedside manners - then go somewhere else

I saw Dr. Anderson for my shoulder. He did X-rays, diagnosed impingement, and did a steroid injection -my shoulder didn't improve. He laughed at my concerns, even though I could not even move my arm! I saw another surgeon. The 2nd surgeon also did X-rays. He said I was too young for impingement and my X-rays did not show any signs of impingement. Anderson misdiagnosed me and was dismissive of my inability to move my arm. I am better now thanks to the 2nd doctor.

Had serious pain in my shoulder. Dr. Anderson not only got me in right away, he diagnosed the problem my PCP missed and took steps to correct it. Surgery was scheduled quickly and went well. Recovery and Physical therapy is going well. I recommend Dr. Anderson to everyone who asks me about this type of surgery.
