Dr. Anderson did the repair portion of my skin cancer surgery. I have not had my stitches removed at the time of this review, but the experience was as good as I could hope for. I followed the post-surgery instructions and have had no problems at all.

I was/am impressed by the care and skills of the entire staff. Perhaps I was lucky, but my procedure and the entire experience was even better than I had hoped. Pain was almost non-existent and all concerns addressed by the professional, but caring, attitude of all personnel.
