I always enjoy visiting Dr. Anderson. He remembers you, in a genuine way, every single time. I feel safe to share my concerns and let him know my “silly” questions. He’s always open to hear you out, and I don’t everfeel “judged”. When I first met with him, I believe he asked me my health goals, and as a natural planner, I could appreciate that. It gave me guidance. I highly recommend Dr. Anderson!

Dr. Anderson was great. The appointment did not seem hurried like many are, and he took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns. While Dr. Anderson took me right away, I waited for over an hour to haveblood drawn at the lab - hence the lower rating in that category.

He is a doctor that discusses details, explains with knowledge, listens patiently, doesn't leave you with any questions undiscussed about your health. After looking for a primary care and internal doctor all last year and even visiting twodoctors, my husband and I started visiting him currently and we believe that we will stay with him as long as he'd practice in DC area.

Overall good, but I wasn't able to get my blood work done during the visit. I felt there was a lag time between seeing the doctor and getting the blood work done. There was time after I saw Dr. Ryan whenthe tech gave me a tetanus shot where the blood work and urine sample could have been taken (or before when tech took my blood pressure). I was sent to the lobby to wait and when the scheduler came out to call another patient she saw me and I asked how much longer because I had to leave for another appointment

Though it wasn't the most pleasant visit--a physical exam a newly 50 year old isn't fun--I was very pleased with Dr Anderson, especially since I had been forced to get a new primary physician by my insurance and wasnt happy aboutthat. He gave me time, spoke at my level, explained options and why he recommended one over others, and looked forward instead of criticizing past mistakes.
