Reviews from Dr. Andersen's patients

Penny F.

Dr. Anderson is the kindest most skilled excellent surgeon that I have ever had the pleasure of operating on me!  On several occasions he has taken my case because I have personally begged him too!  I recommend him to every one I know that needs surgery!!! He should be commended for his expertise and excellence! There simply just could not be a kinder hearted more skilled surgeon! You are very lucky to have him and so am I!!!

I found Dr. Andersen to be extremely professional yet very caring about my situation. He explained everything that I wanted to know completely.

Dr. Craig Anderson has a quality, disposition, and trait in him that no other surgeon that I've dealt with here has. And that is, that HE CARES! And it shows in his professional attitude, and skills. When it comes to professional Healthcare, he'll always be number one in my book.

I very much appreciate Dr. Andersen, who performed my hernia surgery recently.. A great surgeon with great bedside manner... Surgery went well and recuperation was much easier than expected.... A relief... thanks to him, his staff and surgical team.

Excellent care, very efficient. Also very happy with all the help I got doing the paperwork involved so my time off from work was paid properly and there were no delays. Everyone was always very friendly and understanding.

Donna F.

I was seen promptly at my appointment time and was treated professionally with kindness.  The office staff were courteous and efficient. Dr. Andersen was, as always, patient in listening to my concerns and questions. I know I am getting the best possible care by this doctor.

Dr. Andersen has performed 2 surgeries on me. I have a great appreciation for Dr. Andersen, he is very thorough and his attention to detail is unmatched! His bedside manner is impressive! What my daughters and I have appreciated most is the calm demeanor he maintains. As dramatic as this may sound, in my eyes, he is almost Godlike - in that he truly saves lives. I could go on and on about what a great person/surgeon Dr. Andersen is. Could not recommend more!
