Every time I show up to see dr anderson he is always late and if you have a surgery scheduled they cancel it so you have to see someone else dr anderson removed a cyst not long ago on my left eye it grew back but Nikki with his office would never have the dr call me when dr anderson in 2014 done my tear duct surgery I lost vision that whole night when I called and left message no one got back with me

He's been my Dr for many years. I can't say enough good about him and his staff. Without his Care for my blepharospasms I'd be a recluse. I look better than I did 10 years ago. He is amazing!
in SALT LAKE CITY |
My experience was & continues to be AWFUL! He is not interested in the patients well being. I went in for my eyes and was convinced by him and his staff that I needed more. My forehead/eyes are still numb & tingling one year after surgery. I have to wear a headband at night to sleep. The pain is with me all day, everyday. He knew all along the risks but didn't tell me when I asked. He botched several other areas but just gave my money back, very little help for the hell I continue to go thru.
