I needed emergency surgery late afternoon after an accident. Dr Matthew Anderson performed my surgery early evening, when he could’ve easily said I’ll do it tomorrow. I really appreciate his dedication and compassion. Dr Anderson did such a fantastic job that I am recovering quickly. On the follow up office visit he took the time to talk with my husband and I and was very thorough with x-rays to make sure I was healing properly. I would recommend Dr Anderson to family or friends without hesitation.

Dr Anderson was everything an orthopedic specialist is supposed to be. I was very impressed with the way he treated me and answered all my questions. He made sure I understood what he was saying. He even called me at home with my results! Just an all-around great doctor.
