Meet Dr. Anderson & Surgical Patient

Video Transcript: Doctors of Osteopathic medicine are trained to pay attention to the patient as a whole, not to just treat the symptoms. We are trained to actually find the root cause and see if we can address that. This practice has two philosophies; one is to treat everybody as a person, not a disease. Two, to have customer care and customer service better than anyone has experienced anywhere. Whether you are having a big cancer removed off of your forehead, whether you are having botox injected to get the wrinkles off the sides of your face, it doesn’t matter. Everybody is treated the same, everybody is given a relaxed, peaceful environment, everybody is treated like a person, and everybody is going to receive unbelievable, unsurpassed customer care from us.
“I found out that I had Basal Cell carcinoma, finding out that I had skin cancer at 25. I am pretty sure I cried in the office, actually, especially when I found out how big it really was and how much of my forehead was going to have to be removed. It seems like every time I come in, Dr. Anderson remembers. He remembers the little things too, like where I work, and where I am from, so it’s the personalization of it. If you are going to be cutting into my forehead, I’d like to feel like I am more than just your next paycheck. That made a big difference. I am extremely pleased, honestly. Now, people can’t even tell that I’ve had anything done. He did an amazing job blending it into my forehead. I made the right decision in coming here. Now I tell everybody about Colorado Dermatology Institute, even people who aren’t looking for a dermatologist. Most people knew that I had something there, and then even still, everyone says ‘Oh wow, they did a great job!’ and I am the first one to say ‘yes.’ I am very pleased, really and truly. I worry about being vain, but at the same time, there is a difference between being vain and wanting to feel comfortable in your own skin. Having this huge thing on my forehead wasn’t helping with that. So, I tell everyone. Everyone.” – Christina, Patient
If people notice something that’s changing, something that is not healing, something that just doesn’t look right, they need to seek care because it is so much easier to take care of things when they’re small then when they’re big. Sunscreen is vitally important, staying out of the sun from 10-2, at least, is vitally important. Be smart about sun protection. The other thing that’s really important is, all women are supposed to do monthly breast exams, all men are supposed to do monthly testicular exams. Spend an extra 30 to 60 seconds a month just looking at their bodies. I would like to help my patients get to that point where nothing is hindering them with their skin, hair, and nails from being all that they can be. That is so very, very, important in medicine to be able to help somebody to feel their best; help someone to feel cared for, help someone to be comfortable in their skin.   AOCD1 MOHSlogo1 aad
