Britt A. Anderson, MD

Primary Care Physician
Languages: English
Professional Statement
Information about health and illness comes at patients all the time and from everywhere. Sometimes the information is based on sound medical evidence, sometimes it is not. Sometimes it matters, sometimes it doesnt. And sometimes doctors and patients have different opinions about whats best. I enjoy advocating for my patients by learning about their lives, providing information, and working together with them to manage illness and improve health.

I was pleased that Dr. Anderson listened to my concerns about her referral to an orthopedic surgeon. I did not have a good experience with the surgeon.

My annual physical does not feel comprehensive. Little physical examination and the verbal conversation seems to only touch on the most recent issues, rather than on a comprehensive view.

Dr. Anderson is an excellent health provider, always answers my questions, listens to me, and follows through if necessary. Don't know what I would do without her!

This was no big deal to the provider -- apparently a common condition -- but a big deal to me, not only had it never happened to me before but it was painful, bleeding, and had appeared to stop but had not gone away. I needed more context and explanation to understand why, what the consequences of its happening at all, at my age, whether what she was prescribing would be enough to ensure it was over and wouldn't recur, and how would we know. I didn't have the chance to settle any of those concerns. The doctor took as little time as possible -- which I can understand -- but by engaging with me only minimally, which did not satisfy my questions or concerns, only the immediate question: "You have x, it's common, take y." was about it.

Care provider did not adequately take into account my asthmatic condition when assessing what could be done to assist with alleviating the impact of the virus. I had also forgotten that I needed steroids to alleviate the coughing condition in my chest, due to the asthma. She should have been able to access that history when diagnosing and prescribing for my condition at the time.

Dr. Britt Anderson is rude and cold to me. I see her because I'm too busy to find a new doctor. She is callous, judgemental and generally rude.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Britt Anderson. I recently changed jobs and my health insurance changed that did not include my original doctor that I have been seeing for over 10 years. So it was very important to me to find a primary care that I felt comfortable with, took my medical needs seriously, and also was warm and personable. Dr. Britt was all those things! She made me feel instantly at ease and it was a positive experience. I am pleased she is my new Primary Care Physician.

Great experience as always with Dr. Anderson. She is very attentive, listens very well, and takes the time to do a good job. I appreciate her professionalism but also her warm regard for concerns that I might have. Now if she could just lose this weight for me! :)

I have been a patient of Dr Anderson for several years. I would highly recommend her. She is very personable, professional and caring. She take all the time needed. Never has she seemed to be in a hurry. Makes you feel comfortable and makes sure you understand every thing.

always positive visits with Dr.Anderson! I feel strongly that she listens and understands my concerns when presented and that they will be addressed with respectful, knowledgable and thoughtfull care;, so much so that I've recommended a close friend who is now one of her current patients!

I like Dr. Anderson. I wouldn't be driving to see her from Olympia if I didn't like her and have confidence in her.

Dr Britt Anderson went beyond the call and got me to a specialist to ultrasound my leg within a few hours. After that procedure and understanding the urgent nature of the situation, both the specialist and Dr Britt consulted and Dr. Britt called me personally to ensure I was walking toward the ER for treatment. Definite empathy and concern for my situation and boy and I glad I followed her advice.

I felt like because the office was running late the appointment was rushed. I did appreciate a phone call in the afternoon about my lab work - she was very concerned and let me know what she wanted me to do.

The visit was for something that needed attention right away so it was a last minute scheduling which I was appreciative of. Dr Anderson seemed rushed so I am not sure if it's because I was squeezed in or not. Great care otherwise!

I left the apt with a few concerns 1) she said I needed to do a stool test vs blood test to check for [...]. I asked if there way any way to do a blood test instead. She said "I don't know" and didn't check. Then I called to get the GI apt she referred me to - they said it would be 2 months. I went back to the office to ask her about this, and waited for over two hours. I finally spoke with an assistant that told me (out of the blue) I needed a CT scan. No where in the paper work did it say this and the doctor hadn't said this. I asked repeatedly to speak with the doctor to clarify. I waited, it didn't happen. I left [...] after 4 hours at the clinic and being treated with disrespect.
