I have been seeing Dr. Anderson for 12 years. He has been sensitive to the ups and downs that life brings. He finds positive to discuss even when I am not in a very positive mindset. Health problems brought on depression and anxiety. Dr. Anderson does not simply push pills. He does prescribe medication and when it’s not working he listens so he can make appropriate changes. Someone mentioned that he missed appointments but remember he is human and has health concerns just like anyone else.

Worst possible experience in trying to find a mental health care provider. The office staff was rude and completely unhelpful. The office is also completely uncapable of updating their status of taking new patients.

Very professional and caring person that listens to the patient. Have seen him for seven years.

I have been a patient of Dr. Anderson for 5 years. I was a bit timid at first, being a new patient to a psychiatrist. Fortunately, Dr. Anderson was very easy to open up to; he cares so much about his patients, he listens well, I never feel he judges me. I do not feel he rushes his time with his patients, he tries to understand everything you say because he wants to offer the best treatment for you; which does result in a longer wait time, but it is because he cares so much about every patient!
Thank you for the kind words, Katie... Dr. Anderson does spend a great deal of time listening and questioning things so he completely understands your situation... It is important is he is going to prescribe medicines for you! Have a great New Years, Katie!
Frequently cancels appointments.
Unfortunately, Dr. Anderson had some health concerns early in 2016... Things are back to normal now! Thanks for the comments!
