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.

Dr Andersson is absolutely wonderful. Gastrointestinal issues can be very uncomfortable to deal with or discuss but she makes it as easy as possible. She always spends as long as I need. I have complete faith in her. Plus she is just a wonderful person.
