Dr. Dale J Anderson has the following 2 specialties
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

First of all, expect to wait over an hour in their waiting area after your scheduled appointment time. Expect to awkwardly sit in a room with this man while he spends the majority of the time writing, reading and typing on the computer. If you forget to fill out the questionnaire, expect him to belittle you (even though he makes you wait over an hour past your appointment time!). When telling him of the side effects of any medications he's prescribed to you, expect him to act as if you were lying. Expect to be bait and switched if you are paying cash. Expect to be given a handout on breathing exercises that one surely has already tried numerous times before consulting the help of a professional. Now, this was my first experience with this type of speciality so I thought maybe this was supposed to be typical? After I obtained health insurance, I changed doctors. Upon visiting the new doctor, I found the experience completely different. I walked out confident that she understood my problem and it was being addressed. I only waited 10 minutes to get in, was talked to and respected as a person and the appointment went a lot quicker with more being done.
I WOULD RANK HIM 3.5 BUT THAT'S NOT AN OPTION. Yes, you will wait at your appointment time - be prepared. No, won't like your parking options. Yes, you'll fill out paperwork at each visit for assessment purposes (Ask him about it! I did and appreciated the quantitative analysis involved...) But overall, you'll be treated by a great guy, concerned, involved physician that knows his stuff....not much gets by him. And he will spend as much time with you as needed when it's YOUR turn. Also, he's NOT a "pill pusher:" I found the opposite to be true.. He's so into CBT for depression/anxiety, I nearly wanted to gag him every time he mentioned it! Other treatments/therapy modes are necessary for different folk. That's the one thing I'd want him to really and truly know... After seeing him for a few months, it just became apparent he wasn't "the one" for me. But that's fine. This isn't my first rodeo and like a music teacher, personal trainer, or beautician/barber so it is with doctors or counselors -- we gel with some better than others; there is no "one size fits all." Especially in psychiatry. But I was impressed by Anderson's follow up and how easy appointments were to schedule. He didn't prescribe and send me off for a visit three months down the line. He knew I was in crisis and saw me every month. I appreciated this as I was a new patient - how could he know how I was doing if he didn't see me? Also, he gave me words that helped me believe and know the onslaught of "allthatish" (my word, not his!) I was experiencing wasn't normal; my depression and anxiety colored my worldview and could be changed. Yessss! But ultimately, he wasn't the one to see that through.
One of the most thorough doctors I've encountered in the diagnosing process. He spent plenty of time carefully examining my issues to reach a clear course of treatment, which has already immensely improved my quality of life. He listens to concerns and feedback on follow up visits and works with you accordingly. These are all the things I expect in a good doctor and I am very grateful I've found them in Dr. A.
