Very caring and competent Physician. He even called me on Sunday to report my biopsy results. I met him in Tx in 2009, and although I moved to AR, and tried other Drs here, I prefer to drive to TX to see Dr Pendola and Dr Anderson.

Dr. Anderson is hands down the best doctor in Dallas! I’ve been to plenty of doctors and there is no one more attentive, patient and competent than he is. He is always available, takes time to explain everything and his staff is wonderful. Be wary of one star reviews. Disgruntled people on this site are everywhere and rarely reflect what is true.

Horrible bedside manner, doesn't make eye contact with patients, only looks at laptop, seldom does physical exams, he only eyeballs a person and looks at test results or asks questions absently. My case was complicated and not only did he tell me everything was in my head, contradictory to what all my tests showed, and he dropped me like a hot potato. No guidance, referrals, or discussion of the future, apart from telling me all I needed was a psychiatrist. Avoid him like the plague.

Dr Anderson was great. I was desperate and he really tried to help. He listened to my concerns and didn’t seem rushed. He also worked with me on finding medications that would help my condition and cutting out the things that won’t. The office staff were all very nice and I didn’t have to wait long at all.

Dr. Anderson at the beginning was interested in helping. But after a few test calls to me I just need to learn to live with my problem. He was going to another test which was never done. I called his office twice and they said that they had sent the orders. I guess I wasn't that Important. Since then I have found and new doctor that told me I won't have to live with this problem. He was highly recommended and he cares enough for his patients to help them.
