  • The best Doctor I've ever had who listens to my concern very tentatively.
    every time I have tried to make an appointment with this doctor it takes roughly 3 months 10 weeks ago I had a seizure in a parking lot and dislocated my shoulder I had a TV whatever with Dr. Anderson six weeks later I still have no referral this is ridiculous and you are out of your mind if you think this is good practice this is terrible practice I would not recommend her to anybody she's been my primary care physician for almost 5 years and I believe I have never met her I met her assistant once and that was it and in that time I've had cancer I've had a broken wrist I've had a broken ankle I've had extended medical stays and I have not Getting a well woman exam I can't get anything she's a terrible practitioner
    Dr Andersen is down to earth and very relatable. She does not rush, she listens and responds with easy to understand answers to questions. She is the best PCP I've had in a very long time.
    Dr.Andersen is great, extremely knowledgeable and patient, she really takes the time to listen and explain things to me. I appreciate that she takes all the time I need with her, I never feel rushed and I always feel like I am receiving the best care! She is amazing!
    Dr. Anderson is always a great provider, listens to what I have to say, explains thing, takes time. I have recommender her to friends.

    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.

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