It was at age 15 while reading Arrowsmith by Sinclair Lewis that Dr. Anderson realized he wanted to become a doctor. He remembers this deeply profound moment as the beginning of his path to help and serve others and play a critical role in their lives.
Dr. Anderson is very appreciative of the responsibility he has been afforded to provide medical care for patients, enabling them to improve their health. As he states it best, “I feel extremely fulfilled to be able to help people change their lives for the better. Health care decisions are some of the most difficult decisions a person makes and I am happy to serve in this role.”
After receiving his medical degree from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago, IL (his hometown), Dr. Anderson completed a surgical internship at San Francisco General Hospital and a year of surgical residency at Loyola University Medical Center where he assisted on the open-heart surgery team. Additionally, he served for two years as a U. S. Naval Flight Surgeon at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station.
A Laguna Beach resident through and through, Dr. Anderson is proud to serve his local community for the past 36 years and provide exceptional health care for patients of all ages. Outside of the office, he enjoys surfing and swimming in the ocean as well as reading and writing.
