    Biography

    Biography

    Philosophy of Care
    I believe that the practice of medicine is collaboration between the patient and the physician, with the physician listening carefully to completely understand the needs and desires of the patient. I feel that the physician and patient should work together to determine a treatment plan that is effective and fits with the patient’s lifestyle.

    Hobbies
    When I am not working with patients, I love to read, paint, create scrapbooks and spend time with my children.

    I have only seen Dr. Andersen on 3 occasions. She is very thorough with providing authorizations and prescriptions. She has a nice attitude and I trust in her advice. I am very happy with her services.

    Dr. Anderson is a very caring and compassionate Physician. Takes time to listen to you and explain the treatment plan.

    Dr. Andersen always takes the time to speak with me about how I am doing. I never feel like she is rushing though our appointment so I appreciate that.

    I had too many problems to discuss and she is too popular to sit and talk for all my issues. I hope to have another visit and some problems solved...soon. I LOVE this wonderful and caring doctor. She is the best doctor in all my 77 years of life. I am sincere with this evaluation.
