Bed side Manners are far greater then most others
Always great with my girls, can’t forget to mention Dr. Hoffman another great physician. Other doctors should take notes on how treat and communicate with their patients and parents.

I love how he remembers my baby like he was his only patient. Appts are really quick and smooth. He doesn’t harass you to take vaccines you’re not comfortable with either.

Years ago we took our daughter to Dr. Robert Andersen for a 2nd opinion just before a surgery. Another doctor had recommended that our daughter have a 2nd surgery for a new set of tubes to be put in her ears to help with her chronic ear infections (she had outgrown here 1st set of tubes/naturally fallen out). Dr. Andersen asked if we had done any allergy testing. We hadn't. We told him we had cruddy insurance & we'd have to pay out of pocket for allergy testing. He had us test for the 10 most common allergies in children. She was allergic to milk & eggs. We removed those foods from her diet & the chronic ear infections stopped. We continue to take our daughter to Dr. Anderson (she is now 14). He has continued to have wisdom & knowledge over the years and we are SO grateful he is her doctor.

Would not listen to us. We told him the symptoms our child was having and he completly ignored them. Fast forward 4 years and our son is diagnosed with epilepsy. The neurologist confirms that the symptoms we told to Dr. Anderson were in fact a seizure. Had he listened to us our son could have gotten help 4 years sooner.

Dr. Anderson has been wonderful and genuinely cares about the wellness of his patients. He is very responsive and patient- always answering all of our questions and concerns as new parents and putting us at ease. I especially love the way he is with our son and his flexibility with scheduling day of appointments - it gives us extra assurance that we selected the right pediatrician.

He is a rude and ignorant person. He's only nice as long as you agree with him and not challenge his authority. He mocked me and told me I should use my brain and questioned my faith because I disagreed with his view of vaccines. I couldn't believe how unprofessional and disrespectful he was to me in front of my child! He also didn't address the issue my child was having, again, and it turned out to be another useless visit. I will never step foot in this practice again.

Dr. Andersen is very clear and knowledgeable. He speaks directly to my children and encourages them to answer his questions, rather than differing to me. He keeps their visits friendly and easy and answers all their questions (even the silly ones).

Dr. Anderson basically had a tantrum in front of me and my son when I persisted that my son have a throat culture done (sore throat and fever). He told me I was torturing my kid, called me doctor under his breath, slammed his laptop cover down, tried to make me feel guilty telling me that he could have a severe medication reaction and end up in the ER- how would I feel then? My son was as shocked as I was. Rude man. Will never bring my children to see him again- most likely leave the practice

Outdated information given, does not recognize value of nursing, even The Academy of peduatrics recommends nursing till two. Why do doctors keep recommending 2% milk, when research shows full fat milk is best. Was not familiar with dry drowning, downplayed comcern. Told a friend her son was fine and theyended up on the Spectrum. Does not really listen to parents, dismisses them. Will make sure you realize that if you delay vaccines that you are completely foolish and putting your child at risk.
