My wife and I have recommended Dr Anderson to many people including her father

April 17, 2015

Would have been nice had the Doctor would have at least gave him a quick exam. He came in and sat at the computer.

April 14, 2015

Dr. Anderson is fantastic.

April 13, 2015

The Dr. prescribed an antibiotic that had several major side effects that he never warned me of. the pharmacist just advised me to not take it with milk or be out in the sun while taking it. when I got home from the pharmacy, there were 2 sheets in the bag warning me of some pretty serious side effects possible while taking this antibiotic. I am not taking it, and wished the dr. would've warned me about the possible side effects; I would've asked for another type of antibiotic.

April 07, 2015

He talks to much, like a teacher in classroom, repeating the same loud speech, with no help conclusions for the patient.He never let the me talk, and make sure my priorities, or my questions wasn't his. I would not recommend he to any one.

April 05, 2015

My doctor seems to be in to much of a hurry and I don't get to tell him everything

April 01, 2015

This was my first visit with Dr. Anderson, I will be changing providers.

March 30, 2015

he speaks very loud and can here what he say to other people.

March 22, 2015

Does not return phone calls after he specifically told me to call. Seen him at least 3 times now and no one has ever bothered to listen to my heart or lungs. He did not even feel the enlarged lymph nodes I was there to see him about and told me it was TMJ. I will find another provider.

March 21, 2015

my doctor is very thorough and explains everything and works with me and my meds very well.

March 16, 2015

As always I was pleased with Dr. Anderson which is why my wife and I suggested that her 95 year old father try and arrange to see him. As expected he was seen within a few days of requesting an appointment and he is extremely pleased with the care that he is receiving. Many thanks for making an elderly man's last days as happy and meaningful as possible.

March 11, 2015

Dr more concerned about what works for him than what helps me!

March 10, 2015

good

March 02, 2015

Dr. Anderson makes it very easy to understand possible conditions associated with symptoms that I describe. He's given me plenty of options in regards to treatments and has outlined the possible effects, good and bad, that might occur in taking certain medications. I have recommended him to others.

February 26, 2015

Such good experience I have referred our nephew to Dr. Anderson and Greenwood Clinic. I will continue to refer others to Dr. Anderson at Greenwood.

February 15, 2015

He was rude and unprofessional. He was judgmental and unconcerned with my issues and I will never return.

February 10, 2015

Takes time to be informed about condition. before visit.

February 09, 2015

This was the second appointment I had with Dr. Anderson ( Dr Gupta and then Dr Pham where my providers before leaving) Changing/finding a new Dr. is always scaring, but Dr. Anderson is just wonderful. Dr Anderson will take the time to explain the problem and ALL treatment options.

February 05, 2015

my conser my medication is not good.he did not do anything

February 03, 2015

I was talked to like a child,and made me cry. what I had come for was not even mentioned on my chart, I got NO relief for what I came for and I was suppose to get a physical he looked in my ears and checked my lungs, I wanted some blood work, but he said I didn't need anything except a few perscriptions, I won't be back.

January 31, 2015

Doctor Anderson is a very knowledgeable and helpful practitioner. I greatly appreciate the fact that he is my physician.

January 24, 2015

Dr Anderson is my primary care physician and he explains things clearly and gives me options to consider.

January 17, 2015

I feel like, at times, Dr. Anderson talks down to me. I understand that as a nurse I know more about what he is talking about than most patients, but he does not adapt his style to each patient.

January 04, 2015

I waited 3 weeks to get an appointment to see this doctor for a problem I was having with my arm. because my arm had improved over the 3 weeks he didn't even look at it

January 02, 2015

DR. Anderson is simply the greatest. I have complete confidence in him.

November 28, 2014

This was the first time I had seen Dr. Anderson (I used to see Dr Gupta and then Dr. Pham at Centerville). I really liked Dr. Anderson, he spent time with me, discussed options and after learning that I had lost my job and only had insurance through the end of the month he was VERY understanding. He went out of his way to get me in for some over due tests the very day I saw him. I will continue to see Dr Anderson as my primary physician insurance or not!!

November 14, 2014

I generally see NP Paula Siciliano but she was not there Monday so I saw a Dr. Anderson. He was really terrific and took a great deal of time explaining the medications he was prescribing so I would have no misunderstanding. He was terrific. If Paula is not there I would ask for him on another visit.

October 20, 2014

Dr. Anderson was his usual caring self

October 12, 2014

Dr. Anderson addressed in detail every concern I had and discussed all of my medications. He was excellent.

October 05, 2014

Dr. Anderson is very clearly "bolted together" properly. He instilled our trust in him to listen to us and to meet our healthcare needs

September 30, 2014

I really like Dr. Anderson and he always seems to go the extra mile. I appreciate that.

September 20, 2014

Dr Anderson was REALLY helpful. This was my first visit with him and he had obviously spent a great deal of time looking over my records before he even came into the room. We'll done!

September 19, 2014

Dr. Anderson was great as he has always been.

September 07, 2014

The only negative things was that he did not call in my prescription refills as he said he would and I will have to call the clinic on Monday to have them phoned in.

August 17, 2014

New doctor for me and I was very pleased.

August 03, 2014

Dr Anderson provided excellent care and counseling and I came away with a confidence that he will be a good primary care doctor for me.

So far so good.

April 11, 2014

April 10, 2014

Dr Anderson is not only the coolest doctor I have ever met, but he is a true Professional. As a retired Police Officer I have met many doctors, and Dr Anderson is by far the finest doctor I have ever had contact with. HE GOES BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY FOR HIS PATIENTS

April 06, 2014

dr Anderson is a great doctor. a true hero. Chris. Katie and Melanee are great employees. with true dedication

March 15, 2014

I was really impressed with, Dr. Anderson. He spent more time with me in one visit than my old PA has in a year.

March 09, 2014

MD Anderson is the BEST medical provider I have ever been to in my life! VERY informative, thorough, ATTENTIVE, professional as well a caring. I have felt like I was actually LISTENED to as well as understood and cared about (not just another clipboard). I also feel that he is very competent and qualifyed. Absolutely satisfied and plan on staying in his care for as long as possible! THANK YOU Dr. Anderson!!! :-)

February 16, 2014

dr anderson i svery caring and helpful

February 15, 2014

The doctor put me at ease I hate doctor's appointment. He is calm when I had so many concerns and very thankful for him.

February 15, 2014

This was the first time I have met with Dr. Anderson. I usually have Dr.Shikari for my doctor and she is terrific! Dr. Anderson outdid himself. He must have spent about 10 minutes explaining the reasons for my breathing difficulties, how the medicines would work and what my options were. He was terrific!

February 14, 2014

Dr Anderson is terrific he tells it like it is and in a way that doesn't make you feel uncomfortable. I am very confident with his care

February 07, 2014

Already told my co workers he's a good doc

February 03, 2014

Dr. Anderson is the very best!

January 31, 2014

Have not had a PCP in years, my husband see this provider I was with him during that visit is when I decided that I wanted this provider to be my PCP.

January 23, 2014

Saw new Dr for first time and very impressed

January 16, 2014

He understood I didn't want to take pills that made it hard to function in my normal life and quickly changed medications when it made me loopy at work. Also when I first got symptoms he stopped all medication for fear of it being a side effect. He reassured me that when I felt there was no other option that is when we would start medication regime and he did

January 12, 2014

Dr. Anderson was his usual upbeat, caring and professional self. I've been to many doctors in my life (way too many actually) and he is far and away the most caring and knowledgeable. He has a true ability to translate "doctorese" into understandable English while not talking down to you

December 16, 2013

as I said before. Dr Anderson is the best Dr. I have ever worked with! I would recommend him to anyone!

December 14, 2013

U of U health care has the best staff in the country.

December 12, 2013

Very good!

November 30, 2013

I've interacted with many, many physicians over the years, from pediatricians to brain surgeons, and Dr. Anderson is outstanding. He is knowledgeable - from lots of technical training and life experience, interacted in a respectful way with me, cautious about "fads," straightforward, and humorous. I definitely liked his style and will come back.

November 25, 2013

Dr. Anderson is one of only 2 doctors that I have ever met in my life who in not only knowledgeable and caring but is also able to explain what is happening in a way that is understandable to a lay person without talking down to them. He is the best!

November 25, 2013

Dr Anderson was like a 'breath of fresh air', took time to explain what would be the best treatment for me. His suggestions to change my medicine has had a dramatic change to my pain level, feeling much better. My previous Doctor had me on the exact same medicine for years.

November 04, 2013

I was impressed with Dr. Anderson's concern and communication skills

October 14, 2013

He was able to provide me another Rx after loosing my original antibiotics on the trax. He's very professional and has great bedside manner.
