What People Say About Dr. John Anson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Anson says the surgery went well and my post-op x-rays are good but, I still have neuropathy. It may not be his fault but, I shouldn't have had surgery. Office visits run at least 1 plus hour late. Today I'm still waiting after an hour and a half. Poor management. This is how it always is. Maybe the doc is greedy and wants to see too many patients. Also, I told him about a problem with my breathing, he said what I was experiencing can't happen. He just recommend that I go to an ENT.

Dr. Anson and his assistant Carrie saved my life. I was diagnosed with normal pressure hydrocephellus. I had gotten to the point where I couldn't digest food or walk at all. My husband took me to UMC emergency and I was graced with Dr. Anson. He performed a vp shunt surgery in my brain. He told me with all the confidence that after the surgery I would walk again. He was right! The vomiting also disappeared. My A1C went from 12 for 3 years down to 7. Dr. Anson and Carrie are amazing! THEY ROCK!

I do not have enough superlative words to describe my experience with Dr. John Anson and his staff Carey, and Megan. One month ago I could not walk 27 steps unaided today I can walk with NO pain, exercise , and go about my normal activities . Any limitations are for a limited time for healing Of course Dr. Anson's expertise in the surgery was of utmost importance but his and his staff's treatment of my humanness will also stand out in my mind I am beyond happy, satisfied and most grateful.

I was sent to Dr. Anson from the emergency room of St. Rose, this doctor took me into surgery as soon as he could and did a great job as far as I'm concerned. I was walking with great pain and this doctor took great care of my problems

I had surgery with Dr Anson in August of 2015 for Trigeminal Neuralgia. He and his staff were amazing especially his PA Carrie. They were very attentive and answered questions readily. Highly recommended.

After 4 back surgeries in a 14 mo. period, I was much worse. Went to my 2 wk. check up and Dr. Anson had no id why I had drop foot and increased after the last surgery. Went to another specialist who admitted me to the hospital quickly and found scar tissue that was pushed against nerved endings. After this surgery, I could move my leg. I am still in a lot of pain and looks like I will have permanent nerve damage to my right leg. I may never be able to drive again.

Dr. Anson was very patient with me in explaining my medical issue, the upcoming surgery and post op care. Some medical experts seem to rush you out of the office but Dr. Anson was the exact opposite. He is a life saver.

He is the best! I truly believe my husband wouldn't be walking today if it weren't for Dr. Anson. He found what other doctors and hospital testing missed. My husband wouldn't go to to anyone else unless it was something not of his control.
