Patient Reviews (4)
Dr Anderson did an awful job on my lower back spinal fushion and I was permanently disabled before I even got on the 1 st time. You know what happened. I wouldn't recommend anyone I know to go to him
I found Dr Anderson to be excellent, very knowledgeable. He was a through in his examination, worked to get me in to surgery before the 6 week waiting period insurance requires. I was very unhappy with the care of the staff from Mercy hospital. Heather can be very abrupt, unprofessional. After experiencing some of the clientele she deals with, I could fully understand her attitude. Only so many pill seekers, insurance scammers, one can deal with patiently.

I received a phone call today from Dr. Anderson receptionist for a second opinion for my herniated disc, she proceeded to say you have HNE and you have a deductible and copay of $2000 to meet when you go see him, I said that's incorrect it's only a office visit for a second opinion, she then said this is what you have to pay, I said then cancel my appt I will call HNE about this, she then said VERY RUDELEY fine this is how are office works, and hung up the phone on me, unprofessional office.

One of the most unfriendly physicians I have ever dealt with. However, I found his assistant to be very caring and extremely knowledgeable. Heather at the front desk was condescending and spoke to me like a ten year old. I would not recommend.
