Great Doctor!

My son and I have been looking for a doctor to give us answers on his medical issues and to help us understand the results of his multiple MRI exams and Dr. Anderson was excellent!!. He took his time and helped us understand the issues. He answered all our questions and made the visit a pleasant one. We are both extremely happy with his service.

Amazing pediatric neurosurgeon specialized in Chiari

Dr. Anderson was the 2nd neurosurgeon we saw after our 7 yr old son was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation. He had had nausea, vomiting, numbness in arms and legs, headaches, and neck pain for over a year. Dr Anderson assured us that although surgery might not alleviate all of his symptoms it should at least lessen them. His secretary Brenda is wonderful. She went out of her way to work with the insurance and schedule surgery. Dr Anderson called us throughout the surgery with updates and spoke to us after surgery letting us know that everything went well. My son was out of the hospital within 2 days, incision is barely noticeable after only 1 month and he is a completely different kid. Every symptom he had disappeared the day after surgery. Dr. Anderson is an amazing neurosurgeon, great with the kids and families. Although I hope nobody will have to go through neurosurgery with their child, if they do Dr Anderson is the absolute best. He gave us our happy healthy child back!
