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.

I think he goes at your speed so in my case I'm in and out before I know it, mostly about prescriptions, not a lot of chitchat.I would go over a prepared list for the technician, otherwise you will forget, I did.

Dr. Anderson was honestly the best doctor I've been to in DC (and I've been to quite a few great ones). He has a great bedside manner, is very prompt, and will talk through all questions you might have. I wasimpressed by the entire experience, and as someone who gets anxious going to the doctor, he made me feel very comfortable. He will definitely be my primary care practitioner from this point forward!

I would try Friday, come in early, from my office and back in an hour. As I would have guessed, he's getting more popular and improved desk staff, lab staff on 6th floor much nicer than on 1st floor. I willgo back again because when he says you're better, lot of that is him.

Dr. Anderson was very friendly, and carefully listened to all my concerns. He made sure I understood everything I was supposed to do, and stayed later to answer questions and present all the options available. Very knowledgeable. Like a typicalMedStar facility, it was clean and efficient, with clear visit summaries and objectives discussed with the physician.

So torn with wanting to keep him all to myself. Long story short: I hate going to see a doctor. Have avoided for years. Did my research, found Dr. Anderson, never looking back. For other individuals who struggle with anxiety finding the "right" doc, look no further.

I recently had my first appointment with Dr. Anderson. He walked into the examining room exuding vitality and niceness, which put me at ease right away. He listened carefully to my concern and then took a few moments to familiarize himselfwith my medical history. After examining me, he explained very clearly what might be happening, ordered some tests, and then asked if I had any questions. I feel very fortunate to be a patient of such a very nice and highly knowledgeable medical practitioner as Dr. Anderson.
