What People Say About Dr. Lars Anker, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was referred to Dr. Anker via my PCP for sever low back pain with a bulging disc. After receiving approval, I called for an appt. I was told by 'Theresa' that as soon as the Dr. reviewed my x-rays & MRI, she would call and set up an appt. 1 1/2 months later still no call and when I called back, she said he hadn't even looked at them yet. After another month, still no appt. I complained to my PCP. I am still having a lot of pain and it would seem that Dr. Anker is too busy to bother with my problem as 'Theresa' has yet to call back. Thanks a lot. I suppose my problem isn't high profile enough to be considered noteworthy.

This review is based on bad experiences with the front office. But it reflects badly on the doctor. After a recommendation for surgery we were seeking a second opinion. The front office(and probably the doctor) dint like the fact that we dint proceed with Dr Anker for surgery. Not sure what is driving this.. Money or Ego. What do you do when a brain surgeon does not want you to get a second opinion? Walk ... no .. Run for your life!
