If I could leave less than 1 I would dude is a complete liar and a joke. Went in the other day for hearing loss issues and also a ear infection I have and the first time he saw me in the back room he stated it’s clear there is liquid in my ears and clearly an infection. Next his audiologist conducted a hearing test in which she stated it’s clear that the hearing in my left ear is clearly affected and no where near my left and stated how Dr. Anderson was gonna get me feeling better and hearing better. Dr Anderson proceeded to come into the room and make a fool out of me saying there is nothing wrong with my ear no infection no fluid essentially calling me a liar directly to my face. Do not go see this doctor he’s a joke can’t believe he’s allowed to practice and also notice around 60% of these “5 star reviews” for him don’t have anything written about him more than likely his office pets doing as he says complete joke.

I had a most painful ear infection as a side effect from unfinished flu. All what I got from Anderson was ear drops ( for ... outside cuts as another doctor explained later). I didn’t get any antibiotics prescription or other special cure - nothing. Oh no, I’ve got hearing test for $160 dollars out of my pocket ! Sure, this is what you need when you are in pain , and when you can’t sleep from severe coughing. And he also recommended me to continue gargling throat with salty tap water, as I’ve been successfully doing. And free of charge ! He loved my foreign accent with condescending smile. Well, I would never have such “professional help” in my homeland, doctor. You are shame to your country, and you aren’t doctor, Anderson.

Went to Dr Anderson for chronic sinus / ear pressure issues. He asked several direct question and was leaning toward TMJ issues causing my pain, however TMJ wouldn’t impact my sinuses?? Midway through appointment he received and took a phone call. Left the room and never returned. The nurse came in and escorted me to check out where I was billed, in addition to my visit, a $50 fee for the small amount of wax removed from my ear so he could clearly see my ear drum. I do not recommend!!

Dr. Anderson was more interested in giving me unwanted advice on how to treat my cervical neck issues instead of dealing with my sinus issue, which is what I went there for in the first place! The place smelled and needs to be upgraded. I feel like he was giving me an attitude and rolling his eyes at me when I was trying to voice my concerns and describe my symptoms regarding my sinuses. All he was interested in was telling me how I should proceed regarding my neck and spine issues that I've bee

Dr. Anderson saved me from a continual rash of sinus infections. Use to go to Kampsen who did his typical give you a steroid shot, antibiotics and after years of problems had the sinus surgery. Worst thing ever. Dr Anderson listened and monitored my health. He does not shower me with antibiotics nor steroids but cautiously uses methods that won't have a long lasting effect on my body. He cures you instead of medicating you. Huge difference. Thank you Dr Anderson.

Have had great experiences with this doctor in attending myself and my son as he was very knowledgeable and made sure to get to the source of the problem practically in one visit, instead of having multiple visits still not reach a resolution as some other doctors intentionally or unintentionally strive to fail. Thank you doctor as you continue to be patient with children and incredibly efficient in reaching resolutions instead of prolonging suffering, you are a credit to your field.
