Cheyenne, WY |
I would recommend Dr Anderson. He was very helpful with my issues.
Las Vegas, NV |
I had suffered from Restless leg syndrome(RLS) for over 20 years, for over half that time I would get maybe 2-3 hours of sleep a night because of the RLS. I tried everything from supplements, medications, exercise, physical therapy, stretching regiments, and everything I read on the internet trying to find relief. After discussing my symptoms and concerns with Dr. Anderson, it was determined that surgery would be my best option. I am 3 months post surgery and I have 0 symptoms!

Worst experience ever. DO NOT GO HERE! They do procedures without prior authorization from insurance. I did not want orthotics done. They said they will take impression and if they don't cover it they will just not make the orthotics. I received a bill for over 1k. Called billing it was another company taking their calls. They would talk to office and call back. No call back. Went to collections. Talked to billing again said they would call office again no call back.

This is the worst doctors office my daughter and I have ever been to. Among a lot of other aquantances we know. Horror stories! I asked them to check with my insurance first or I could not have anything done. They said it was covered And did ultrasound. Then I get a bill for the ultrasound. I called billing and it was a lady in Kansas who didn't speak English. She said she would contact the office and get back to me. No call back and it went to collections. DO NOT GO THERE!

I have seen Dr. Anderson for a variety of foot conditions & surgeries (neuroma, torn tendons, bunions that kept wearing through my shoes, plantar fasciitis, ingrown toenails) over a period of maybe 15+ years. I completely trust his judgement and like that he stays on the forefront of issues regarding the feet, even committing himself to teaching his staff as well as other doctors new material. He is a friend now, as well as a doctor, & remains committed to treating even the most stubborn issues.

Dr Anderson was great and had my foot feeling better after one visit. The office staff was very nice

Very good experience here! Scheduled an appointment and being a new patient was booked right away with Doctor Anderson who is a specialist in this field. All parts of my visit; check in, the doctors visit, and checkout were all quick and efficient. All members of the staff there were very knowledgeable and helpful and I felt that the problem that I went in for was met with great care and experience. Will definitely return for future care and would definitely recommend to anyone.
in Loveland, CO |
I visited Dr. Anderson at the end of 2015 for severe neuropathy pain in both of my feet. Do not let this Dr. cut into you!!! He is far to eager to make you his personal Frankenstein in order to have content for his research study and the book he said he's writing. I've had 2 second opinions since visiting and these other highly qualified Dr's said no way to allowing surgery on my feet (due to a major circulatory issue I also have). Despite concerns, Dr. Anderson was adamant he could help me.
in Greely, CO |
Dr. Anderson was rude and unprofessional. He thinks that the world revolves around him and that no one else (especially patients) has anything better to do than WAIT ON HIM. I waited in the waiting room for over an hour and a half. He refused to help me unless I took a stupid test worth $500, before the surgery. Furthermore, I had to get the test again AFTER the surgery. That is a total of $1,000 to do tests that are not necessary (per my second opinion) and benefit the patient in no way.
