Negative, poor, lack of people skills, seemed tired and annoyed. Talked back like he was a guy on top of the world... (No joke) my mom was explaining that I was a dialysis patient for 7 years and I know some of the procedures so we can get things going a little faster ( they were about 45 mins behind) so I thought I could say I'm ready for anything and cooperate a little faster. Cooperate for what? he says. I said, well the procedure,,, he says, what procedure? And at this point I'm cunfused. He says , we are not doing the procedure right now. We have things to do first (sounding all cocky) and I said, okay let's go, he replies, where are we going? This point I'm cunfused and annoyed cause I do nocturnal dialysis (just started, I like it.) But I haven't really had sleep throught 2 outta three runs, and they expect me to fast for fifteen hours and deal with him??? NO!!! Everyone (dialysis nurses and dr's tell me how important this surgery was for removing my parathyroid glands out) he Dr Anderson didn't seem to care one bit... So I asked for a different Dr. That all happened in a matter of 3 mins and he just walked out! Oh and the sleepless night and the 15 hour fasting, he told me to suck it up... I didn't read anyone else's post on here but I'm sure he was a good Dr to you but not me. I experienced no professional I him. #newdr
Dr. Don Anderson is a pro. A very skilled surgeon with top expertise. I had a cancerous laryngeal polyp removed early in 2014 and checked 6 months later ...all gone, thanks to
Dr. Anderson and I am totally impressed with the laser surgery method. He's the king. As
a teaching Doctor there are many learning from him and this bodes well for future patients who will need this assistance. I echo the sentiments of many others who owe their lives and
well-being to this fabulous Doctor! Staff are also very helpful and accommodative, and deserve a great deal of credit for their assistance in a difficult line of work!
Gotta love Don's humor, and totally admire the man! Thanks to all.

After receiving false negative results from another ENT, my husband was referred to Dr. Anderson to have a neck lump removed. He knew right away something was wrong, performed another biopsy on the spot, rushed it down to the lab, and gave us the results two weeks later - cancer. He did an beautiful job with my husband's radical neck dissection (the scar is barely noticeable), and followed my husband throughout his recovery and post-cancer monitoring. Dr. Anderson literally saved my husband's life. We enjoy his offbeat humour and found him to be very kind and compassionate when the chips were down. He is an amazing doctor and surgeon, and we feel very fortunate indeed to have had him on our case.
Dr DW Andersen is one of the best surgeons. I was referred to him for a thyroid nodule and dr Andersen performed thyroid lobectomy surgery. Before the procedure I was nervous however dr Andersens expertise and funny sense of humour kept me at ease. He is a professional and knowledgeable doctor and kept me smiling with his witty jokes and awesome sense of humour during the entire experience. My surgery went well no complications and dr Andersen skillfully removed the benign tumour. DO NOT agree with any of the bad comments people have left, dr Andersen is an awesome doctor and person. I would definitely recommend doctor Andersen to others I actually like the guy more than any other doctor I have seen and I've seen a lot of doctors and surgeons for various things. Thanks again doctor Andersen words cannot explain my thanks and gratitude with the care you have provided for me you are an absolute master at what you do and I was lucky to have you as my surgeon!

Was referred to Dr. Anderson by Dr. Irvine due to a complicated tumor in my Parotid gland. Dr. Anderson was knowledgeable and informative from the first meeting he answered my questions and alleviated my fears with his humor. He performed my surgery skillfully and removed my benign tumor without any complication. My recover was quick. I'd recommend Dr. Anderson highly.
I was in the hands of a master! I could fill this page with superlatives. Suffice to say Dr.Anderson lasered off a growth on my left vocal cord (9/12/13). Immediate return of my voice after braying like a donkey for two months. Extreme hoarseness gone. Zero post-op discomfort. Just a raging appetite. Pathology results on growth...BENIGN! Just as Dr. Anderson called it when he first scoped my throat the month before.Anyone in need of a highly skilled E.N.T. surgeon with a genial, caring demeanor, can thank their lucky stars if your family GP refers you to Dr. Don W. Anderson. HE IS THE VERY BEST! John Foster, White Rock, BC.
