    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've been seeing Dr. Andersen for the last 4-5 years and she is familiar with my medical history and provides the best care as a result.

    I love my *Dr. Andersen. She is down-to-earth, listens carefully & explains things clearly. She does not rush through the appointments.

    I think Dr. Andersen is one of the best doctor's I've ever had- including specialists and pediatricians. I've recommended her many times to friends and family.
