About

Professional Statement

Dr. Anderson believes in treating the patient and not just treating a diagnosis or imaging study finding. His approach to patient care emphasizes listening to the patient in order to understand why he or she is there and what the patient is looking to achieve through the course of their treatment. After performing his evaluation, Dr. Anderson seeks to educate the patient about his or her condition, explain treatment options, and work with the patient to establish a mutually agreed upon treatment plan so as to empower the patient to be an active agent in their own care. In addition to managing the acute problem, Dr. Anderson also recognizes the importance of lifestyle and risk factor modification in order to promote overall health and reduce the risk of future injury and loss of function.
