I have been seen Dr. Andersson for nine years. She is the best. She cares about the patient and very knowledgeable in the latest medicine. She has a great network of colleagues and helped me to get a critical life-saving surgery done in a week. She always on time, never wait more than 5 minutes in my 9 years and over 20 visits. Her schedule is pretty full and needs to schedule well ahead of time. However, she is welling to fit a critical patient in if medically necessary.
