What Our Patients Say

I love the ease and simplicity of a video consult. I have really enjoyed having the option to meet with my provider from my home. It saves me a lot of time not having to travel to her office.

Jodi W

After a recent accident, going into the clinic was difficult. Being able to use a video consult to meet with my doctor was so convenient. Thank you!

Will T

I meet with my eye doctor on my lunch breaks while at work. Online visits have allowed greater flexibility with scheduling visits! I tell everyone to switch to online appointments!

Steve W

I can’t believe how easy it was to meet with my provider. I’m not very technically savvy and the video link was extremely easy to use. It’s amazing to meet with my provider at home.

Hilda S

Dr. Anderson did a fantastic job with my LASIK procedure. I was very pleased with the results. He was thorough, and took time to answer all of my questions to ensure I was well informed on what to expect pre, post and during the procedure. I felt very comfortable with him and trusted that the health of my eyes was his highest priority. I highly recommend, Dr. Anderson, he does great work and is a caring ophthalmologist!

Rachel Woodside

Dr. Anderson performed my LASIK surgery in June and I only have positive things to say about the experience. Dr. Anderson was not only professional but also very personable ophthalmologist. The consultation was informative where he went over the procedure and addressed all my questions/concerns.

Quynh Nguyen

Dr. Anderson vastly improved my quality of life! It is so wonderful to open my eyes in the morning and be able to see clearly! At my first appointment, he took the time to explain the procedure to me and answer all of my questions. Surgery itself was a snap and his follow-up care was excellent. It is obvious that Dr. Anderson truly cares about his patients and their well-being.

Anna Roberge

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr Anderson and staff. My eyes have been bothering me for quite a while and Dr. Anderson had some great ideas on how to improve my dry eyes, which has been my biggest issue with the Colorado climate.

Sharon Whit

Laser cataract surgery has been quite successful. Dr Anderson seems very knowledgeable as does his office manager, Justin. One eye corrected so far with multifocal toric IOL, and vision is substantially improved. I definitely recommend Dr Anderson.

Linda Cowan

I was extremely pleased with both my cataract surgery and the service I received afterwards. I am seeing great and want to thank Dr. Anderson for his excellent patient care and follow-up concern after each surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Anderson!!
