Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

Dr. Anderson is wonderful, kind, patient, caring, etc... I could go on and on about how great he is as well. My kids love Dr. Anderson.

Dr. Anderson is always so caring and comforting, and professional and trustworthy.

Dr. Anderson is one of the best pediatrics physician I've ever met and that has treated my child.


Dr. Anderson is a superb doctor and Providence should be very grateful he is with them. He absolutely cares about us and shows us his care in taking the time needed for us and finding out what is going on and talking to us about our personal care.

We absolutely LOVE Dr. Anderson! When we moved to the South Bay from OC many years ago, I was sad to leave our previous ped dr., but Dr. A has been above and beyond the best pediatrician we could ask for. He ALWAYS treats us so kindly, and makes my daughter feel so special. He is definitely knowledgeable and is so patient with all my questions and concerns. He recently gave my daughter extra time when he saw she was in tears over teenage stress, and he was so gentle and sweet with her. His advice as a father and dr was just so amazing. He is so special and we are definitely blessed he is our pediatrician. We LOVE him!

excellent doctor very knowledgeable.. he called next day to check about baby's health.
