I had cancer in my lymph nodes which was found to be non cancerous, which proved to be false.Dr. Anderson did not believe the test results. When he operated he found cancer in the lymph node. Dr. Anderson is an excellent surgeon, my scar is barely visable, I am still seeing him for follow up appointments. His bedside manner is not great but he is a great surgeon.

When I required thyroid surgery I was in shock and very worried. When I went to see him he did not try to sugar coat anything. He told me what would be done and why. A very short appointment but I now knew where i stood. His staff arranged for my surgery in Surrey in a very professional manner. I had my surgery in Surrey (which also impressed me with the caring and efficiency). When the follow up appointment came, his smile was almost as big as mine when he told me the tumor was benign and I could smile my way out of the office and continue with my life. An extremely professional surgeon. Doing what he does for a living, I can fully understand his quick, no nonsense approach to patient visits (There are so many). But when you are there, you know your in the best of hands. Thank you Dr. Anderson

I meant to post this years and years ago but Dr Anderson helped me back in 2007. I had a cyst in my neck that grew to the size of let's say a football. The first surgeon I saw made it sound like I was about to die, I left crying, terrified and even worse with no idea of when this painful lump would be removed from my neck. I told my mom I did not want to go back there, I was referred to dr Anderson after this he was so compassionate and caring. He explained to me exactly what was going on in my neck and that he could fix it no problem. They first recommended IV therapy to see if it would help bring down the swelling at all but nothing helped and by the 5th night at 1am Dr Anderson saw me, saw how much pain I was in and was going to do surgery right then and there to drain the monster. Unfortunately I had had something small to eat on the way to the emergency not knowing surgery would be happening but I came back in the morning and he got rid of it right then and there. He also did my second surgery to remove the cyst completely and my scar was barely visible. He is a wonderful surgeon and I found him to be quite pleasant and caring. 9 years later and I am still great ful! If you are a patient of his feel at ease, you are lucky to have a wonderful surgeon on your side 👍😊

Don's the most skilled ent oncologist surgeon in B.C. and most likely one of the most skilled in Canada. Don't worry about the "bed side manner" thing, it's meaningless compared to that.

Dr. Anderson has performed a maxillectomy ( melanoma mucosa in sinus), and two years later modified neck resection ( removal of lymph glands). I am most grateful for his continuing care and attention, he and his staff are wonderful! Clark W. Miller, Sechelt.

Very knowledgable and competent doctor. Maybe he is not the best regarding the compassion and attitude when treating patients. But definitely he is an excellent and efficient surgeon, from my side, the scar is healing well, the time for surgery is much shorter than other doctors. He answers questions very directly and accurately. Highly recommended because of his profession.

Dr. Anderson may be many things as pointed out in these comments but hands down he's the best doctor I've ever been in the care of.
