Great doc

Dr. Andersen takes the time to really identify my problems, not just slap me with expensive tests because my symptoms justify them. He saves me and my insurance company money by spending the time required to figure things out. Made me feel comfortable and that my opinion mattered too.

A very happy patient !

I always get an immediate appointment from the nurse (usually within a couple hours ) and Matt sees me as soon as I arrive. He takes as much time as needed, listens attentively, discusses options to my woes and WE agree to the the right treatment. A good man and a good physician. I had to go to and fire 4 doctors to find one without GREED as his primary goal and treadmill method of seeing patients. In Phoenix it is difficult to find a non greedy doctor with his patients welfare foremost in his mind but Matt is the one. Sometimes I call him St. Matthew.

Best doctor in Utah!

Dr Matt Andersen is & warm, open & engaging. He acts like my family & I are his only patients & most important ones. He is a genius doctor & understands medical nuances & is able to quickly help me & my family. He spent an entire night researching a difficult precedent for medication to cure a very rare & usually fatal condition. It saved my son's life, I am told. He worked with a renowned rheumatologist to make an accurate & savvy choice, bringing to the table the necessary proof that the course of treatment was appropriate, & not deadly. It was a calculated & confident attempt to save my son's life. Dr Andersen did this without pay, to help when the treatment was initially unknown by the hospital ICU staff.
