I have been going to Dr. Anderson for several years as he monitors my macular degeneration . He and his staff are always very efficient and appointments are right on time. I would recommend him for anyone needing a specialist in this area.

Dr. Anderson did a fantastic job of explaining the nature of my eye issue, the plan to address it and the procedure itself. I recommend him highly to anyone who is in need of retinal care. He is very approachable with a pleasant manner.
