I have seen Dr. Anderson since 2001. He is the wisest man I have ever known. Further, he is one of the few Psychiatrists left who not only prescribe effective medications (brilliant psychopharmacologist) he does also does CBT. Dr. Anderson truly cares about his patients and he lives his mission as a Physician by standing behind the Hippocratic oath to "Do no harm." I am beyond blessed to have found him through a referral by a friend (this man does not need to advertise). He saved my life. SSL
