Abbott Labs GREATEST SALEMAN

Sam Anderson will find something wrong with you that requires a pill made by Abbott Labs, no generics , he will not write a script for a generic. Will not answer questions, just walks out of the room. Extremely rude.

Five Stars

I think Dr. Anderson is a really good Endo and have been very pleased with everything about him and the care I have received. He always takes the time to thoroughly review my logs and explains to me exactly what I need to do in order to get tighter control. He answers all of my questions and does a good job with follow up.

A terrible physician and endocrinologist

Sam Anderson MD is the example of what you do NOT want in an endo. He wants you to spend $$ on non-generic levothyroxine, When waiting to get the billing paperwork after a visit, I became unconscious due to insulin shock and Anderson was too busy with his other patients to even assist me (another Dr. in the practice had to attend to me). He struck me as an ideologue. Further he made me hyperthyroidic by prescribing too much levothyroxine, didn't notice my symptoms, and my primary-care physician had to correct his error. I know 3 other diabetics who have seen him, and, after 1 year, ALL went to another physician.
