More Information



  • I never feel rushed.
    Dr. Andersen is probably the best PCP I have had. She is very natural and never seems rushed and my conversations with her are very clear.
    Very down to earth & easy to talk to.
    Dr. Andersen spent more than an average amount of time with me and I never felt rushed. She is very kind.
    Don't recommend anything.

  • Biography



    Philosophy of Care
    I believe that the practice of medicine is collaboration between the patient and the physician, with the physician listening carefully to completely understand the needs and desires of the patient. I feel that the physician and patient should work together to determine a treatment plan that is effective and fits with the patient’s lifestyle.

    When I am not working with patients, I love to read, paint, create scrapbooks and spend time with my children.
