Dr Anisman is just great. He displays the concern which was exhibited by our Family physician (of 38 years), before he died, Dr. LeRoy Taylor. Thank You so much for your concern and knowledge,

December 04, 2016

He was fantastic!

December 02, 2016

I've had horrible experiences with doctor's in the past, so this time around I left who I would be seeing today up to chance. I'm so grateful I got scheduled to see Dr. Anismen! He made me feel like I wasn't crazy. He listened to and paid attention to everything I had to say. He even paid attention to the little things, which was made clear by looking at his notes on MyChart. He genuinely wanted to help in any way that he could, he included me in medication decisions, and made me feel like I mattered. He even referred me to some people who might be very helpful with some of my other health needs. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience, especially after so many completely dreadful ones.

October 29, 2016

I love Dr Anisman. he is amazing. I have so much confidence in him and feel that he makes me a part of my care and helps me to make good decisions about my care. I LOVE HIM!!!

October 10, 2016

I like the provider, and I would have liked to have him as my PCP, but he referred me to another physician in the same facility. I appreciated that.

October 03, 2016

Dr. Anisman was extremely knowledgeable and provided me excellent advice and information about my issues. His bedside manner is excellent. I didn't feel rushed through the appointment. He took time to fully explain and answer my questions. My husband and I both trust him with our health concerns and needs.

October 01, 2016

Dr. Anison did a great job answering my questions and explaining items I was concerned about.

September 21, 2016

there's no indication that they are aware of my health

September 17, 2016

The doctor told me I might have a Marfans syndrome but was very educated on it. I have always been thin and lanky. I've been seen by a pediatrician yearly. I left the office with worry.

August 30, 2016

They should all be excellent

August 16, 2016

They always take time for you and don't rush you, and listen. They are the best

August 14, 2016

Dr. Anisman was GREAT! I recently lost my provider and he took me on as a patient. He was so thorough!

August 06, 2016

Dr. Anisman was excellent during the whole time I spent with him.

August 05, 2016

Dr. Anisman is by far one of the nicest physicians I have ever had. He is never in a rush and takes time to explain the pros and cons relating to my diabetes medications. He gives me the encouragement to live with and control this disease.

August 01, 2016

Dr. Anisman is always very good with my baby. He does his exam efficiently as to not upset the baby. He always has a kind smile and can keep my baby happy.

July 03, 2016

Seemed really genuine and involved in my care.

July 02, 2016

Dr.Anisman is the finest physician I have ever known.

July 01, 2016

My exam went well, despite the wait to see him, my doctor didn't appear rushed or concerned with the time he spent discussing my general physical well being. I appreciate his willingness to stay late for my exam.

May 23, 2016

My daughter was seeing a pediatrician, but I switched her to Dr. Anisman. He is very knowledgeable and I always feel I could ask him anything. I didn't feel that comfortable with her previous physician.

caring and understanding of my problems

April 07, 2016

He is the best doctor that I have ever had.

March 22, 2016

Excellent service by Dr. Anisman and staff..I have complete confidence in his care.

March 11, 2016

Dr. Anisman goes far and above and listens, and makes a plan to follow, prioritizes your concerns. He's patient and I've never felt hurried, in fact if he is running late it doesn't bother me, because he is giving someone else the time they need too. He is one of the best, he took care of my father or passed away last year.

February 09, 2016

My only concern is that my provider did not wash his hands or use hand sanitizer before completing a procedure.

January 29, 2016

Dr.Anisman is a great and caring physician, who knows my case very well, is happy for my successes in controling my blood sugar levels and cheers me on to keep on doing what I can. I cannot be more grateful.

January 28, 2016

My care provider doesnt seem to care at all about my situation or health concerns i only get asked why i'm taking the medication i've been getting prescribed or what i'm looking to get out of it. I am finding a new doctor who i feel is actually there to help me live a better life not to be just getting by and to feel less than that i have to take a medication.

January 24, 2016

I am grateful Dr. Anisman took me on as a new patient last summer. I did a lot of study on his background and have found him to be an excellent PCP.

January 24, 2016

Dr. Anisman is able to explain complex medical situations in language that is easy for me to understand.

January 19, 2016

Excellent and knowledgeable PCP. I'm glad he picked me up as a patient.

January 11, 2016

He took time to listen to me. I appreciated the time and honesty provided to me. Thanks

January 07, 2016

Dr Anisman seems very knowledgable in his field and has a very nice bedside manner. I did not feel like he really listened to me with my main issues when I came in for my yearly check up. I have lower back pain and issues and expressed that to him but he did not even examine my back. I felt like I shouldn't even bother to come to the doctor.

January 07, 2016

Very informative about my condition & medication

December 17, 2015

All is good

December 11, 2015

Dr. Anisman is extremely competent and personable. He seems to be a specialist in many areas. He genuinely cares about patient and patient needs. GREAT DOC!

October 29, 2015

I needed to take the blood tests before the appointment so that the results could be discussed at the visit. The doctor did not have the results of the colonoscopy that was taken in late September so the results could be discussed.

October 25, 2015

it was good

October 18, 2015

The care is invariably excellent ONCE I CAN GET AN APPOINTMENT. This problem seems to be worsening over time!

September 04, 2015

I loved the Doctor that I saw. I am sad he isn't accepting new patients because I would switch in a heartbeat! He was very nice and informative.

July 14, 2015

I think he is the most skilled doctor I've ever been to

July 12, 2015

Dr. Anisman has an exemplary dedication in his profession. he goes beyond the extra mile to care for his patients like me who have a other needs. What I really impress me most is that he coordinate with my other physicians so I could well be taken cared of. my other doctors are impressed about him. I'm very grateful to him. his knowledge and compassion are some of his great traits. he's one of the few.

July 08, 2015

I feel Dr Anisman saved my life. He is extremely smart, caring, and a real detail person. Even when my systems where not extreme at the time he said we need to check this out. I am so grateful he did. my test did not reveal the extent of my problem until I had the heart catheterization

June 21, 2015

Dr. Anisman feels like he is a specialist in many areas. His "bedside manner" is superior. My husband and I both feel that he genuinely cares about us. He also makes us feel he is looking out for our best interest. Best Primary Care doctor we have had. I would also like to add that I do not provide positive reviews or feedback unless I feel strongly about it one way or the other. I certainly am impressed and satisfied with Dr. Anisman's care. WE TRUST him.

June 18, 2015

can not recommend him when he is so hard to get in to other wise he is very good

June 14, 2015

Dr. Anisman is just a good guy!

June 10, 2015


April 20, 2015

I know he was busy, but he did not make me feel rushed. He answered my questions, explained options, and was great at following up on the plan we had made to see if it was working or not. When it was found not to be working we set a new plan. I appreciate his knowledge, kindness, and time. Thanks Dr. Anisman.

April 08, 2015

I always like the way Dr. Anisman takes the time to make me feel important. I never feel like he is "rushing" to get to his next appointment. He always explains things in a way I can understand and he always asked what I think. He is a great doctor.

March 30, 2015

Very patient and full of good information to help me make an informed decision. Stated things in a different way than other physicians to help me make by decisions.

March 12, 2015

Dr Anisman always takes time to listen and understand my concerns. That is why he is the only provider me and my family will see,

March 08, 2015


March 01, 2015

Dr. Anisman is very patient and always do extra mile for me. he is the only one who listen and pay more attention to my other medical issues. he also make sure that I am getting enough help because of a serious medical issue I have and his help garners a high respect from the other providers by setting a good example.

February 23, 2015


February 14, 2015

Dr. Anisman did a hearing test so the medical student could observe. Dr. Anisman always takes plenty of time to answer questions. Great and caring provider.

February 12, 2015

This provider is a perfect blend of professional, as well as personable. He spent quality time with me, and followed up on all my medical issues. I would highly recommend him

February 06, 2015

Very thorough and we always felt better leaving the clinic because of his professionalism and care, compassion.

January 30, 2015

Ive been coming to this office since moving here from MN almost a year ago, and it has always been a positive experience. My comments questions and concerns are always heard and understood.

January 27, 2015

I have recommended Dr Anisman several times to patients of Dr Wilson who were left without a dr.

January 15, 2015

Dr. Anisman is incredible! He really takes the time to understand what is going on with you and makes every effort to solve the problem. Always involves you in the care.

January 12, 2015

Dr. Anisman is aware of my persistent cough and very helpful in trying to treat it properly. With the prednisone, I am doing much better already.

December 18, 2014

I love my doctor and his staff he even went out of his way to call me after hours to ensure I was doing OK. I've never experienced a doctor catch that much

November 16, 2014

I like David Anisman very much, and am extremely pleased that I have been able to secure him as my care provider.

November 16, 2014


November 13, 2014

I have been seeing Dr.Anisman for years and he has taken very good care of me.

November 06, 2014

I came to Dr. Anisman after Dr. Pham left. He was very attentive and helpful. So glad I connected with this new provider.

October 23, 2014

I recommend the UofU clinic in Centerville to anyone with whom I speak about medical care if they live in the area.

October 09, 2014

This was my first visit with Dr. Anisman since Dr. Pham left. I was very happy with my choice in a new doctor. He was great.

October 06, 2014

Due to Dr. Anisman's thoroughness and professionalism, I am pleased, most specially on my case, I feel that he has a great compassion and care. I have recommended him to four of our relatives and continue to see him and are pleased.

October 03, 2014

Dr. Anisman was very thorough, patient and kind as always in answering my questions and providing suggestions for improving my health.

October 02, 2014

I can say that I was pleasantly surprised how much in tune with my needs Dr. Anisman was. He gave me very good advise even though I haven't done the follow -up yet. I've been involved with recent expense for oral surgery.

September 20, 2014

The care that the staff provided was very good.

September 16, 2014

he was nice, but he was rushed and he seemed stressed. it made me feel like I shouldn't go into much detail. it must have been a very busy day.

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


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

Dr Anisman and Dr Morril are wonderful!

December 29, 2013

The doctor was very informative about my condition

December 28, 2013

Dr Anisman is exemplary. Truly. I feel he understands me. I feel he is invested in helping me attain better health. I really feel he cares. He is highly intelligent n he has the most caring way in explaining everything. I have confidence in him and he treats me with such respect. I am so grateful for his expertise n his caring nature because I will surely follow up with my appointments.

December 24, 2013

November 28, 2013

Dr. Anisman is a good guy and a great doctor.

November 05, 2013

I came here because two friend recommended Dr. Anisman and I will do the same.

November 01, 2013

The physician spent more time lecturing me about getting a flu shot than about the purpose of my visit (ear infection).

October 23, 2013

Dr. Anisman is great.

October 14, 2013

Dr. Anisman is quite informative but seems to always be in a hurry.

October 02, 2013

a doctor who listens and gives feedback and orders all the right tests, I would and do recommend him.

September 30, 2013

Will recommend this practice to family and friends

Dr. Anisman is invariably polite and provides explanations for medical issues

July 05, 2013

I've already recommended Dr. Anisman to people. He was absolutely the best doctor I've ever been to. His whole staff was awesome.

June 16, 2013

The information that I received concerning my medications was far more than I have ever received previously.

June 14, 2013

Dr. Anisman is a great doctor. Thanks.

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 30, 2013

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

April 23, 2013

it was fine

April 21, 2013

Best Dr. I ever met

April 09, 2013

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

Excellent care overall.

March 08, 2013

very good experience

March 07, 2013

Dr. Anisman does an excellant job. He is one of your best assets

February 26, 2013

Ive already recommeded Dr. Anisman to a friend.

February 25, 2013

Dr. Anisman has always been kind and very efficent

February 25, 2013

Dr. Anisman did an excellent job. He is very good at his job and I was very very pleased to be able to see him on such short notice.

February 25, 2013


February 20, 2013

I had an awesome experience, and look forward to making this provider my primary provider.

February 18, 2013

Dr. Anisman was very good - nice manner, and seemed very knowledgeable.

January 24, 2013

he seemed to be in a hurry and not interested in my concerns

January 22, 2013

He was very kind and helped me understand everything I needed to. He did a thorough exam and it made me feel like he really wanted to make sure everything was going well with the kids.

January 22, 2013

Dr. Anisman was very professional, friendly and compatent. He took exceptional care of my urgent need.

January 11, 2013


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

Dr. Anisman is excellent

August 28, 2012

I would recommend this care provider and clinic to anyone.

August 13, 2012

I am concerned about recommending him based solely on how long I've had to wait at our last three appointments.

July 17, 2012

Dr. Anisman was open and explained possible causes for my condition.

July 12, 2012

Dr. Anisman is alway very kind and professional. He explains things to me without making me feel dumb.

June 11, 2012

Dr Anisman is a great Dr I wish I would have had him in St George. He listens and we together come up with a solution.

June 05, 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.
