Referred to Dr. Anderson after my son broke his arm. He got us in right away and thoroughly explained the injury and the treatment plan. He’s a very patient and kind doctor. My son was the last patient of the day but he did not seem in a rush to get us out. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. John Anderson accepted my daughter as a new patient recently after she was recommended to him by our pediatrician. His office made her appointment easily without notice on a Monday morning after we feared she had broken her arm. By the time I made an appointment and left the appointment, it had only been two hours. Dr. Anderson was kind, gentle, and so patient with my baby. I can't say enough positive things about this office or about Dr. Anderson.

Poor... nearly incompetent office staff! Couldn't distinguish mother from daughter for appt. & insensitive to racial differences Ran VERY late even though was told to arrive early... a 1.5 hour wait is unacceptable! Doc offered little /no advice. Total waste of time and money!
