Care Philosophy

Arrowhead Health Centers is a comprehensive, integrated network of providers that deliver primary care along with pain and injury management, diagnostics, and rehabilitation. Our founders recognized at the very beginning that when you put people first, people get healthy. So they simply asked people what they wanted and delivered it. That was 1997, and from that point on Arrowhead Health Centers has focused on quality of care and quality of service. That means treating people with respect; being on time; making doctor visits convenient, treatments effective, the process easy, and the doctors approachable. This is the Arrowhead Health Centers difference. We put people first, and it shows.

Anthony is a extraordinary doctor and so calm and kind. He listens to your concerns and he is very thorough with the care of his patients. My son also sees him and won't go to anyone but him. Im sure sometimes he rather me not talk some much but he and his staff are the greatest. Thanks for giving us the best care. ?? Michelle S

Anthony is great at relating to the patient at their level. My husband is a little older and stubborn. He listens to Anthony because Anthony breaks it down for him, he is direct, and doesn’t judge. We trust him enough to recommend him to our friends and family.

I really liked Anthony for several years. I will no longer be going to him and that is between Anthony and I . Until recently everything was good, so some of my answers below will be based on pass visits. Not the last 3 or 4. Previously I have referred pts. to Anthony

Anthony has always treated me with respect and compassion. He in my opinion is one of the best doctors I have come across. He knows what he is talking about and knows how to communicate with patients.

Anthony is awesome. Better than any practitioner I have ever had. He spends more time, and explains things more thoroughly than any MD I have seen in the past. His level of knowledge and professional commitment are obvious. I feel like he sincerely cares about me and my needs. He's not a pill-pusher or quick-fix advocate. His character, approach and demeanor give me an extremely high level of trust in his counsel; in fact, I trust him enough to recommend him to my friends and family.

Very knowledgeable. He did more for me in my first appointment than any other Dr had done in years.

I was very dissapointed and frustrated with the experience I had with Anthony. Anthony did not communicate well with me and seemed angry when he was trying to figure some stuff out. He didnt even prescribe medicine for what I was going for, instead he shifted the appointment towards something else I have been diagnosed with. He didn't see interested in what I had to say and he just didn't make me comfortable.

I've never been able to find a Dr that acted like the honestly cared about you as a person and Dr Nelson is Amazing and truly cares about his patients! !
