    Dr Anderson is a knowledgeable and efficient cancer specialist. He truly is the best. Due to his specialty he is busy and his staff makes sure his patients know what procedures are going to happen and when. His sense of humour is unique and maybe not everyone gets it but we do. 

    We are thankful for the expert care from his practice.
