After 6 years of having a lumbar laminectomy with a bone spur performed by Dr Anderson I consider myself lucky to have been referred to him. After 10 years prior to the surgery having constant pain he gave me my life back. So after all this time I say Thank you Dr Anderson.

When my primary Doctor referred me to Dr. Anderson on my diagnosis of a Herniated disc on my L5/S1 Lumbar I didn't know what to expect. I did a little research on Dr. Anderson and he had good report. The moment I walked in his office I felt safe and peace. He did a laminectomy and Discoptomy on my L5/S1. After the surgery I had no more pain. Ive been walking with no pain. However every person is Different. Dr. Anderson did an amazing job! I have nothing but love for the man. Thank you Dr!!!

I was diagnosed with severe central stenosis, multiple levels of foraminal & lateral recess stenosis, multilevel degenerative disc disease with protrusions and multiple disc protrusions. I interviewed with three surgeons and knew without a doubt the Dr. Anderson was the one I wanted to perform my surgery. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Anderson and his staff. Dr. Anderson is very professional and I would recommend him to anyone needing surgery.

Dr. Anderson has been my neurosurgeon on 3 different occasions, 2 of which involved my spinal cord and had he not been so good at his profession, I would be paralyzed, in a wheelchair right now. He is very kind, straight forward, and expects you to listen to his direction if you want to get better. I trust this man with my life and can't say enough about him!! Also, his office staff, Kate & Karen, are the best!! Very friendly, handles the 'paperwork' very promptly ,i.e. forms, referrals, etc

Doctor Anderson left my back in a little better shape but I had to have another back surgery less than a year later because the job was not done very well. I am now much better thanks to another doctor. Also I was treated disrespectfully because I had Obama Care insurance (which is crap). Regardless, if a doctor is going to treat you, he should be respectful. His receptionist was even worse. Just would not recommend him for both of these reasons.
Thank-you for your opinion. I'm glad I was of some help and your problem is now resolved.
