Spectacular Surgeon. Compassionate doctor. Cool person.
in Roseville, CA |
A co-worker referred me to Dr. Anderson. She operated on my neck with a good outcome. For two years, she strongly advised me to get off the oxycontin. I was in denial, but she finally convinced me. It was hard, but my life is so much better now. I will never be able to thank her enough!

I tell everybody about Dr. Anderson. Sacramento's first female neurosurgeon.
in Roseville, CA |
She is a real doctor, able to make a diagnosis, able to get the insurance company to do the right thing. I referred my mother to her. She had a great surgical outcome.

Dr. Anderson saved my life by repairing my back. My previous surgeon botched the first surgery, and other neurosurgeons refused to help. Dr. Anderson was outstanding and very professional. My family and I thank her every day.
in Eugene, OR |
Dr Anderson was cold and indifferent to my condition, pushing surgery or get out of my office attitude. After surgery, she ordered the wrong xrays so I had to go take them again. When she saw that other vertebre were compromised in my accident she said oh...had I seen that before, I would've operated on it when I was in there....then with a smirk she looked at me and said...but you can always have another surgery. Do not go to this surgeon. There are better with much nicer bed side manor.
