When we can't see Dr. ..., Dr. Andersen is my next choice. He never seems to be in a rush even though we know appointment times are short.

I've been bringing my kids to Dr. Andersen for over 20 years. I was shocked to see how irritated and short he was with us during this visit. We were exactly 10 minutes late to our appointment, due to a long freight train. He walked in irritated that we were late and rushed the whole appointment. His tone was rude. He said he had a busy clinic day and now he'a "20 minutes behind."Therefore he started the check up immediately without even greeting us. He then asked me about how my daughter's health has been, when I started answering him and voicing my concerns, using his same irritated tone, he told me that this is a Wellness visit and that he doesn't have time to address my concerns, that I should make another appointment if I want him to look into her health issues. I don't mind making another appointment, it was all in the delivery of his sentence. In 20 years, I think I may have been late only once before. I feel that we deserved a better treatment and respect. And even though we were late, we were still within our grace period. I'm very disappointed and frankly decided not to continue care at Elmhurst clinic due to my experience on Saturday. I will be finding a different practice.

We received excellent care from Dr. Andersen and staff. He related well to my teen daughter, listened to her with care and concern and gave her reassurance when needed. He was in tune to her concerns about returning to sports and talked her through a protocol to help get her back to playing condition.
