Dr Anson was amazing! He did surgery on my neck & fixed my problems instead of throwing medication at the problem! My quality of life is 100% better because of Dr Anson & I would recommend him to anyone with a spine issue

Incredible Neurosurgeon

Dr. Anson saved my 85 year old mother's life. My Mom became flushed and confused with high blood pressure. We called an ambulance and was sent to Sunrise Emergency Room, Stroke Center. She was given a very grave prognosis in the ER due to the vast amount of blood in her brain that pushed it to one side. Dr. Anson met us in the ER, read the MRI and calmly told us he can operate to remove the blood but she is high risk because of her age and COPD. To our amazement, he removed the blood, stabalized her blood pressure and personally had her up and walking the next day. Dr. Anson is truly a gifted neurosurgeon and a very compassionate man. I wholeheartedly recommend this doctor.
