Dr. Andersen is great! I\'ve been going to him for 12years now, since he was at North Garland & I don\'t plan on ever changing my PCP. I\'ve moved out of Dallas County & he is worth the drive, always courteous & respectful. Involves me in the decision making & listens to my concerns & any issues that I might have. Great Doctor!

I am alive today thanks to the excellent care provided by Dr Andersen over the past 18 years. He is very cool, calm, and collected. Not an alarmist, but a doctor who carefully analyzes test results and elevates genuine concerns. Due to his intervention in 2008 I was referred for additional prostate testing due to gradually rising PSA levels (although still in the "safe" range). Ended up having surgery for cancer that was close to getting beyond the prostate. I have complete confidence in Dr Andersen and would highly recommend him as a truly outstanding PCP!

This was a new patient visit for routine care/physical. Dr. Andersen spent 1.5 hours with me going over my health history, current medications, health concerns and answered all questions. He was friendly, kind, showed interest in my concerns, was empathetic to my fears, did not rush me, and talked with me as a friend. He even shared some of his own personal experiences which put me at ease and made me feel more accepted. The whole experience from the welcoming I received at the front desk, through the visit with the doctor and the medical assistant, was very good. If future visits are as good, I will feel like I have found a home.
