I really like Dr. Anderson. She's super nice and remembers you. She warms her tools with hot water before she uses them to make you more comfortable. My only issue with her is that I began to complain about severe pain during sex (one more than one visit) and she really gave me no options. At one point she told me I just had to deal with it mentally. She wasn't rude or mean about it, but I really got the impression that there could be no possible medical explanation for it. I have since gone to other doctors and been diagnosed/had surgery. I'm surprised to read another person's comment here that sounds like they had the same problem, except that Dr. Anderson diagnosed/treated them. Not sure why I was not offered and real explanations/treatments. Either way, she's very nice. But with any doctor, always get a 2nd opinion if you are not satisfied.
Honestly, this staff is amazing. So you have to wait a little while to get in as you do any office. The service is only an issue in the absense of value. There is no absense in value from this office. I have waited a year for my insurance to switch over so I could get back to Dr. Anita York and the transition was seemless and I appreciate the little things. So thank you Dr. Anita and staff (Patty) for assisting me. See you soon!!
Dr. Anderson is very caring and knowledgeable. I went through a few gynocologists before seeing her- some were an hour and a half late for the appointment without a "sorry I wasted your time", some were rough, some came in and did their job and got out. Dr. Anderson is nothing like that. She looks at you when you talk, she is responsive and she genuinely cares about the outcome of your issues. I had a growth in my uterus that required a DnC with scope. Before the surgery, when I was nervous and vulnerable,she was very loving and reassuring. Also, I brought my 2 year old to an appointment and she could not have been kinder to her. I can't say enough kind words about Dr. Anderson. (The staff is very friendly but very slow with call backs- I had to call a few times to get a response about apt times/ins issues)
She spent time to thoroughly listen and understand my wife's history. Knowledgeable and very professional; explains exactly what she's doing/going to do to. Personally replied a call on one weekend to calm my wife's fears during early pregnancy.
I went to this doctor based on the reviews. She acted as if she needed to catch a plane and wasn't happy I bothered her with questions. I'm assuming she keeps visits under 15 min for financial gain. Other than that she was very professional and gave me a referral for another specialist, but I felt revolted after the visit and I'm not coming back for my next annual check-up.
Dr. Anderson is awesome. My husband and I had been unable to have sex for years, due to pain on my part. Dr. Anderson made it her mission to make certain that we could have sex, and after a surgery, and some therapy, that goal has been accomplished. She's kind, helpful, and a very caring doctor.
