Always leave feeling that I was in very good hands, caring attention from everyone involved. All questions answered until I felt comfortable and completely informed as to what was being done and results that may or would occur during treatment.

Saw Dr. Aanderud in October 2016 for a subaceous cyst on my nose. He did not explain much to me because he had several college students observing him that day and I wasn't asked if it was okay for them to be in the room. He told me the cyst was caused from smoking cigarettes. He then injected the cyst on my nose with Kenalog Acetonide 10mg but after a year, the bump has grown larger. Told my regular doc about this visit with Aanderud and he was apalled.

The office tried to force my 90 year old senile mother into MOHS surgery, making us feel like we were withholding life saving treatment. I expressed my concerns via fax as well as hand delivering a copy of the letter to the office. No one EVER contacted us regarding our complaint that a person in that office was trying to guilt us into treatment. I had heard good things about this practice, its too bad one apple can spoil the entire barrel but the fact that our concerns were ignored...sad!
