Dr. Hildreth V Anderson has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

We had heard great things about Dr Anderson but we had an appointment with him after my dad's heart attack and he was very cold, uninterested and just seemed like he did not care. After waiting for over an hour, he did not even want to answer all our questions. He gave us one word answers and was very patronizing. We have a good friend out of town who is a cardiologist and he had given us a list of questions to ask and Dr. Anderson could not even answer all the questions and got really defensive. I feel like he should just stick to being an academician and not see patients if he does not care about them. Later I noticed from his resume that he is well published and does a lot of research so it seems research and attracting grant money is his focus as opposed to clinical skills and providing good care to his patients. I realize that he sees 100 patients with heart attacks weekly but to the patient its still their unique experience. Would highly discourage people from seeing him.
