Dr. Anderson - Patient Testimonials

The staff was professional, and even though they didn’t even know me, treated me better than in my own house! I seriously looked forward to my appointments. The office was very clean and nice. The desk staff outdid themselves, always making sure I had the current paperwork I needed, and encouraging me to get well. Amber, especially was really helpful. I came there upset and feeling negative, but you all changed me! I knew walking in that door, it was all about me. Thank you everyone, I am much better now.
