I was very concerned when my regular eye physician told me that I needed to see a retinal specialist. When he told me I needed to see one that day or the next,I knew it was very serious. Dr Doss immediately got on the phone,and i was on my way to see Dr Anderson. He was amazing as he explained I would need surgery on both eyes (retinal tears)! I can’t say enough about the awesome care I received. I’m an RN myself,and I know exceptional care and had an excellent outcome. I just want to thank Dr Anderson and his staff for a job well done!!!

Dr. Anderson and his team are outstanding!! He helped me through my BRVO that I had been dealing with for 7 years. He set out a game plan, we followed it, and I am so fortunate to say my eye has healed, I have been taken off the eye drops, and have been released! He is so professional and caring, very sincere, and willing to listen to your concerns. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Anderson for your special ophthamology care.

Dr. Anderson is an awesome retina eye specialist. He did my surgery 12 years ago for a detached retina and it has done great. No problems and I am very blessed with that I have seen other doctors at this practice when this first happened and all have been great. Your eyes are something you cannot replace so you must have confidence in your doctor. I highly recommend.

I had a torn retina and I was referred to Dr. Anderson by my ophthalmologist. Dr Anderson was very cordial and has great listening skills. During my visit there were some emergencies that came in. Because of that my appointment was a tad longer but I figured if he devoted time to those patients he would take his time with me and he did. I was very pleased with Dr. Anderson and his staff.

Dr Anderson was very professional and explained his findings so it could be understood easily. He was not in a hurry (as compared to some of the other workers) in seeing his patients and getting them out of the office. He was professional and caring. I'd recommend his services.

Dr. Anderson is an amazing doctor. I had a retinal detachment about 2 years ago and was so afraid I would lose the sight in that eye. This wonderful doctor with his magnificent skill and hands of gold fixed my eye. I now see 20/20 in both eyes. I will never be able to thank him enough. God bless him and his entire exceptional staff. They are the best!!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Anderson for over 5 years. He is treating me for an eye bleed in my left eye. I’m a commercial driver and must pass a DOT vision test yearly in order to keep working. My last exam my vision was 20/15. Without the medical care from Dr. Anderson and his staff I would be unemployed. I HIGHLY recommend him.

Dr. Anderson has been taking care of my eye problems for over 10 years. He has done a great job and I would not want to change. Dr. Anderson has had to Laser repair the retina in both of my eyes and remove the floaters. He also took care of my fathers eyes for 8 years, through some pretty interesting problems, and did a great job. He and his staff are very friendly and efficient. You will not find a better eye/retina surgeon!

I was pleased to have been referred to Dr. Anderson by my primary ophthalmologist, Steven Elliott. It was scary to learn I was so close to losing my vision in my right eye when I thought I only had cataracts. Dr. Anderson and his support team always made me feel like I was getting superb care. I am happy to report my eye condition has become stable under his care and for now, I will no longer need to visit him; however, if that changes, he will be the first doctor I will seek for care.
