One of the BEST in Holy Cross network
I have been a patient for Dr. Anand for almost a year. He has performed two procedures on me for afib. When visiting the doctor's office I find the staff to be friendly, kind, eager and helpful. It is always a pleasant experience. The wait time in the office is always short and my first interaction is with the nurse who performs an electrocardiogram. Again, she is always pleasant and helpful. My time with Dr. Anand is spent reviewing my case and the progress I have made. I find what he says to be helpful in taking my health to the next level. He is informative, professional and well educated. I would recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their health and seeking a doctor who can make a difference in their well being.

Consider Another Doctor
I'm not exactly sure why Dr. Anand has high reviews because my experience was not good at all. First, as soon as you walk in you are required to pay for the appt before even seeing the doctor. I've never paid for a service before even receiving it not even in healthcare. Second, I noticed as I was sitting in the waiting room, every patient about 4-5 people before me left with being told that a follow-up call would be done in regard to their planned procedure. Everyone in the office required a procedure? Very odd. Once I was walked to the office chair, Dr. Anand came bursting in (in a rush I suppose) and barely let me state my list of symptoms or medications I had tried to alleviate my chronic allergy issues before he pushed an invasive procedure on me that only had a success rate of about 40% and would have to be re-done every 2-3 years. So I ended up "needing" a procedure as well (I declined). Sounds like a money grab to me and I rather be looked as a patient not a dollar sign.

As always, Dr. Anand was professional, knowledgeable, personable and quick. I don't believe I have ever waited more than 10/15 minutes for an appointment, no matter the time of day. Many times I'm called dead on time (don't even get a chance to read a chapter or two of the book I always bring). Above all, Dr. Anand is honest; he tells it like it is, makes his recommendation and then lets you make the final decision. I trust his medical expertise implicitly. His support staff is equally top-line.
