- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

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.
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.
