About Dr. Patrick S Anderson MD
Dr. Patrick S Anderson has the following 2 specialties
- Gynecologic Oncology
Gynecologic oncologists specialize in cancers that occur in the female reproductive system. This includes ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and endometrial cancer, as well as the less commonly talked about female reproductive cancers like vulvar cancer, vaginal cancer and fallopian tube cancer.
In addition to diagnosing the stage of your cancer and recommending treatment options, they’ll provide care throughout your treatment and help you manage your symptoms. They’ll often work closely with a pathologist and a radiologist to properly diagnose you and determine if your cancer is shrinking or spreading throughout treatment. They’re even trained to administer chemotherapy and to perform surgery to remove cancer when necessary.
- Obstetrics and Gynecology
An obstetrician & gynecologist, or OB/GYN, is a physician who cares for women throughout their pregnancies, straight through to the delivery of their baby (obstetrician). They also specialize in annual care, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the female reproductive system (gynecologist). Many physicians specialize in both of these fields in order to provide complete overall health services to women at every stage of life.

I've been going to Dr. P Anderson for years and I'm glad God lead me to him. I was dealing with Endometriosis. He has always been very patient, professional and I always feel comfortable in asking questions and expressing my concerns. Yes, the wait is worth it. Just realize that you are important and it is good to make your health care a vital part of your life. The atmosphere is always welcoming. AP-W

Self-verified patient of Dr. Patrick S Anderson - Posted on April 4th, 2016
ZERO stars! I had a TOTALLY TERRIBLE experience with his office! I did not make it to see the doctor due to his HORRIBLE receptionist, Edma (sp?)!!! I called twice to get information after my file was transferred there from my retired GYN of 25 years! This receptionist was RUDE and could not even respond to a friendly question of, "How are you"? She kept saying how can I help you, you need to make an appointment. I only wanted to know the procedure for my transfer from the other doctor...and/or what to expect on a visit...My first call was a month ago. I called today as my annual is nearing. I asked what time the office closes. Again, "do you have an appointment"? I said I wanted to talk to the doctor for about 5 minutes ( to see if he is the doctor for me). I then went to the office. I spoke with some patients leaving. The woman told me she had to curse them out when she first tried to call. The desk receptionist was not helpful or friendly. I was told I could not see the doctor as I needed to make an appointment for 5minutes. I then asked for my file. Another person came from the back and said I had to pay for my file! I refused! She was unhelpful and unfriendly as well. I explained to them that this is a vulnerable change for me and I'm use to a very friendly and open environment for my GYN needs. NO apologies. I saw them talking to the doctor. He did NOT come out to intervene! The person, "Emna" came out to say she was going to copy my file and give it to me. I then mentioned to the receptionist, "Is your staff so stubborn that they would rather copy 25 years of notes then for the doctor to talk to me for a few minutes". She said nothing! Emna, came out with my file. As I reviewed it, she asked did I have any questions. I asked if there was more to my file and did they have contact info for my previous doctor. She said no. I stood there and continued to look through my file before I left. She then said that I was TRESPASSING!!!! I told her to call the police, but I had the right to stand there and look through my file. I then said, it must be very hard to work with your or for you because you are so unfriendly and nasty. She said you get what you give, I hope you don't get too wet out there (as it is raining)! I looked at her in total disbelief and said again, "you are sooo very nasty"!!! And I left! I will be reporting this story to every and any review site I can find! This treatment from a doctor's office is UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!! GYN services are very intimate and their response was disgusting and deplorable!!!
