Chicago, IL |
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.

We have 6 month old son, and we are with dr. Andersen from the beginning. He is very friendly and super nice. He is always glad to answer all our questions. We would recommend him to our friends and family.

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).

He is amazing! My children feel comfortable with him.

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Outdated information given, does not recognize value of nursing, even The Academy of peduatrics recommends nursing till two.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.
