“Dr. Andersen is a very special doctor. He is very caring and takes time to explain things.” -Jayden M.
“Dr. Andersen is a polished professional. I was warmly greeted and put at my ease. I was of course anxious about my visit. The thing that really endeared me to the doctor was his listening ability and his attention to detail of my history of ADLs. It helped him to understand how I used my shoulder and arm and that I had brought 2 problems to the table. He gave me time to talk and did not dismiss me. He was a professional that had heart. And that was the start of our trust.” -Jeannette G.
