What the heck just happened?

Wait time was an hour and 15 minutes to have a guy come in and do a 5 minute personality assessment along with a minor physical exam and tells talks to me like he's Dr Phil! So incorrect on judging my personality and life that there's no way he's looking to take care good my pain! I see why there are so many complaints! Don't go to this guy!

Not so accurate / Short on Time

He spends 5-10 minutes max face time and then was not exactly accurate on his diagnosis... said I did not have asthma while two other doctors confirmed before and afterwards that, in fact, I do. It could be a technician error rather than his, but his trivializing my breathing problems was not acceptable.

More about Dr. Charles A Anderson

I grew up and spent most of my life in Southern California, where I practiced medicine for over 20 years. I met my wife of almost 30 years while doing my residency in the San Francisco Bay area. Our daughter is currently working in San Francisco, and our son is attending university in Berlin, Germany. I was originally interested in marine biology in college, but switched to medicine after doing some research in neurobiology, and working at a community hospital. I have served as a medical director for a sleep disorders center in a California hospital, and a medical director for the largest sleep diagnostics and treatment company in the country.
