“The voice is a representation of our selves to the world. Voices convey depth, intention, meaning, and flavor to our words. Even mild hoarseness can rob us of our ability to communicate in the way we intend. A strong healthy voice is a vital part of teaching or doing business. It contributes to entertainment, service, and communication with loved ones. My purpose every day is to help you to achieve the best possible voice so that you may live your life to the fullest. My promise is that I will work my hardest to help you express yourself the best. For over 15 years my subspecialty focus has been voice, throat, and swallowing disorders. I am honored to be able to provide this service and to be a part of improving lives.”

I rarely make reviews, but (Dr Anderson) deserves one (because) she was excellent. She patiently answered all my questions, so I felt 100% prepared when it was time for her to do my tonsillectomy. By far one of the kindest doctors I've ever met. If I ever need to go to an ENT specialist again it will be her. -Casey
