August 24, 2014

Dr. Anisman is great.

August 23, 2014

The doctor was late but very considerate once he was in the room. I felt he took extra time to answer my questions.

August 13, 2014

By far one of the WORST experiences that I have ever encountered at a doctors office.

July 31, 2014

I felt like Dr. Ainesman was very compassionate and concerned.

July 28, 2014

Dr. Aniseman is a wonderful doctor. I have been struggling with some odd medical issues that have left me a little frustrated and confused, and I appreciate Dr. Aniseman's patience and understanding.

July 25, 2014

The doctor has been most able to talk to me a senior citizen about my condition. He shows great knowledge and concern, as does the staff.

July 16, 2014

Overall, great experience!

June 25, 2014

The prescription for the wrong medicine had been written, which I was able to correct with the pharmacy.

June 17, 2014

He did a great job with the stitches.

June 06, 2014

I have recommended your facility and staff many times.

June 06, 2014

I have never seen any other physician as dedicated and thorough as Dr. Anisman. He cares a lot about his patients. The problem is sometimes, because he is likable and in demand, he has other patients who are waiting too. Sometimes we think we spend too much medical expenses, but I guess it is recommended for our own well being. We like him. He is a good man and has good heart

May 22, 2014

Dr. Anisman is an excellent physician. Very happy and confident with him as my doctor.

May 16, 2014

Even though Dr. A knew I was in the health care field he didn't make any assumptions in what I did or did not know so he made sure to explain everything that he though it was appropriate for me to know. I think that is very important and he was very professional.

May 06, 2014

Dr. Anisman is awesome! He always makes me feel like I have his full attention and he takes the time to answer any questions I have. I never feel like he is "in a rush" to get to the next patient. I brought my son with me on this visit and he even answered some questions my son had.

May 01, 2014

Dr. Anisman always shows compassion and make you feel as if he is listening.

April 23, 2014

Dr. Anisman is great. He always makes me feel taken care of and spends adequate time with my exams.

April 16, 2014

Dr. Anisman solved a medical problem for me that had been going on for 6 months. He was the first provider that was able to figure out the solution to a very uncomfortable problem.

April 15, 2014

I believe he likes his profession and it shows. He has a good repoire with patients. Glad to have a pcp that I am confident in.

April 03, 2014

Dr. Anisman is the best doctor I have seen anywhere.

March 29, 2014

One of the most positive doctor visits I've ever had. Doctor was very helpful and gave me lots of options and information. I walked away feeling confident about my treatment plan.

March 21, 2014

Dr. Anisman is great.

March 20, 2014

DR ANISMAN PROVIDED A VERY THOROUGH EXAMINATION 9AS ALWAYS) AND AND ANSWERED MY QUESTIONS COURTEOUSLY AND PATIENTLY

March 14, 2014

I appreciated the time Dr. Anisman spent with me. I know he was busy. I was transfering care and had several questions. Dr. Anisman answered and advised me. He was very caring and knowledgable.

February 24, 2014

good that I could get in and see a family dr. when I couldn't see my Internist. my problem at the time needed fast attention.

February 21, 2014

This was my first visit with Dr. Anisman. He was very apologetic about the wait time from earlier in the day and was able to help me with my health care issue. I feel confident that I would see him again if my primary provider was unable to see me.

February 21, 2014

Dr. Anisman, so far is the best Primary Physician I ever had here in Utah. He is a very thorough, compassionate and care for me and my family whom I recommended. I am sure he is overall a great physician to all. What I like from him is he diagnose and consult other doctors which I do not think other doctors would often do. My life has been easier with him tolerating my current diseases, most of the time, I see him more than the specialist that are particular in any disease. I am very confident for his skills and knowledge. I am lucky to have him as my physician. We would stay in Utah because of him.

February 08, 2014

The doctor I saw was great, I have seen him a couple of times already. He is very knowledgeable and very good at explaining things clearly. The only thing that I didn't like is I felt that my time with him is always rushed. I understand he is busy and he has other patients to see, but that doesn't mean that he should be racing from one patient to the next.

January 04, 2014

April 30, 2013

Everything was great except for the time white On the second visit.

April 30, 2013

Although the care provider was unable to give a definitive explanation for my condition during this visit he did explain all the possible diagnoses, discussed his thoughts on the primary cause, and gave clear directions on what I can do to work toward improving my condition. He showed concern for me and my health.

April 23, 2013

it was fine

April 21, 2013

Best Dr. I ever met

Was recommended for follow up with specialist. Have not heard back from them as of 2 weeks later. Did contact primary care they supposedly attempted a second contact.

April 01, 2013

Dr. Anisman is always good. I like him.

March 27, 2013

Dr. Anisman didn't give me any medications, solutions or anything. Asked if were taking anything. I said yes, and he said just try anything over the counter. Waste of $ 25. The pharmacist was 100 times more helpful.

March 18, 2013

Didn't apologize for being so late.

March 13, 2013

January 11, 2013

GOOD

January 02, 2013

Doctor was exceptionally well informed - even on obscure tropical diseases (relevant for us, having just moved to Utah from sub-Saharan Africa). Had an intelligent, respectful conversation with me on an equal footing. At the end of the session I had an excellent understanding of my medical situation and the reasons behind his advice. The net result was that I trusted him and followed his instructions very precisely. His 'bedside manner' and expertise were exceptional - other doctors would do well to use him as a model.

December 31, 2012

Went for physical, but no blood work was done. No concern over elevated blood pressure. Same advice as last year.

December 21, 2012

I'm still waiting for the provider to get back to me with records that they're obtaining from my previous Dr. It seems like it's taking a long time. I was surprised that I wasn't having tests of some type taken.

December 07, 2012

I really like Dr. Anisman.

November 21, 2012

This was my first visit. I will have to have more visits before I am able to answer some of these questions.

October 17, 2012

I felt that Dr. Anisman was not as informed about my history and did little to help me.

October 12, 2012

We love our doctors, nurses and all staff members and we always recommend them to others

September 17, 2012

Nothing bad can be said about Dr. Anisman

September 10, 2012

Dr. Anisman is very thorough and efficient and I trust him!!!

September 03, 2012

I would highly recommend Anisman. I like Anisman he seems very aware and knowledgable to current best practices in medicine. He always goes beyond the present situation and address other applicable concerns. He went to the effort to print of the details for me so I could take something home in hand to check my vitamins at home. I really appreciate his professionalism and am confident he is always covering all the bases, even when I am unaware.

August 28, 2012

I would recommend this care provider and clinic to anyone.

August 28, 2012

Dr. Anisman is excellent

August 13, 2012

The entire encounter was friendly, professional, and efficient.

April 27, 2012

Dr. Anisman never seems to be in a rush (even though I know he is very busy). He always has time to answer my questions and talk about my concerns. He makes me feel important and never gives the impression that he is too busy to make sure I am comfortable with what is going on with me. He is an amazing doctor and I feel so lucky to have him for my primary care physician!

April 24, 2012

This was my first visit with Dr. Anisman. He was wonderful. He was patient, a great listener, kind, professional and truly cared about my medical issues. He respected me as a patient. I am so glad I have chosen him to be my family physician.

April 21, 2012

The doctor was wonderful. He spent a good amount of time examining me and then explaining why he was prescribing what he was prescribing.

April 17, 2012

We have had a hard time finding a care provider since moving here ~ 9mo ago. Very impressed w/ Dr. Anisman's bedside manner, knowledge and approach to healthcare!

April 14, 2012

The doctor was very thorough with all of the concerns that I had at this visit.

March 23, 2012

Dr. Anisman always provides thorough explanations

February 28, 2012

When I was expressing the way I was feeling the doctor listen with care, after some tests he also explained to me why he was doing them and why I was feeling that way and also told me what to do to help me feel better since there was not medication. He also wanted to give all the information to my OBGYN so he could follow up.

January 06, 2012

Dr. Anisman is very thurough and professional. He truly cares about his patients.
