Because he believes better outcomes are achieved when patients understand and embrace their care, his practice philosophy is education-based and very collaborative. During consultation, he explains his patients’ diagnosis, their disease stage, the standard of care based on the data, and whether special circumstances exist to deviate from the standard of care. His patients love the handouts and diagrams he provides and often comment on his ability to present complex issues in an understandable way.

What Patients Say

"Dr. Anderson and all of the staff were wonderful. Any questions were answered with clarity and patience. Everyone was patient and kind with my mom, not only was she dealing with the cancer but she also had Alzheimer’s. They answered every question (multiple times??) and never made her feel rushed." --- Healthgrades

Dr. Andersen was very thorough in his explanation of my circumstances and thoughtful of my concerns. By asking for an additional sample before I left, he helped me to save time and worry. – Google

I arrived half an hour early to my appointment, and was seen immediately. Amazing. Dr. Anderson was extremely knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. After explaining my test results, he let me know that I would probably qualify for a DNA scan to enhance my on-going healthcare. That was very pro-active on his part. I am grateful for his concern and expertise. – Google
