After graduating from Rampart High School in Colorado Springs, Dr. Anderson moved to Vancouver, British Columbia where he attained his Bachelor of Science and Biology from the University of British Columbia and a Master of Christian Studies degree from Regent College.

Dr. Anderson states, “Over the five years I spent in the U.S. Navy, it was my distinct honor to serve the medical needs of the military men and women of our great country. This experience, particularly my tours in Iraq where I treated U.S. and coalition military members as well as Iraqi civilians, gave me extensive experience in recognizing and treating the underlying causes of dermatologic conditions.”
Dr. Anderson left the military in order to pursue Dermatology. During his three year dermatology residency at the Michigan State University Consortium/Oakwood Southshore Medical Center, he was actively involved in academic pursuits which included national and international lecturing as well as publishing several dermatologic articles.

Dr. Anderson is on staff at Memorial and Penrose/St. Francis hospitals and is a member of the El Paso County Medical Society and the Colorado Springs Osteopathic Foundation. Dr. Anderson was the President of the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology from 2020-2021. He was also an assistant professor at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Parker, CO.
Upon completing medical school, Dr. Anderson was commissioned in the United States Navy where he served two combat tours in Fallujah, Iraq as the USMC First Reconnaissance Battalion Surgeon.
“Over the five years I spent in the U.S. Navy, it was my distinct honor to serve the medical needs of the military men and women of our great country,” said Dr. Anderson. “This experience, particularly my tours in Iraq where I treated U.S. and coalition military members as well as Iraqi civilians, gave me extensive experience in recognizing and treating the underlying causes of dermatologic conditions.”

Dr. Anderson’s passion for Dermatology is expressed in his personal statement:
“Dermatology is a vast field which has captured my interest and is teaching me more than just the medical side of our largest and most visible organ. Our skin incorporates the kaleidoscope of our genetics, environment, and psyche into the dynamic processes for which you find yourself seeking medical intervention. The interplay between all of these factors makes the field of dermatology endlessly enjoyable and rewarding.
I am sincerely grateful to so many people who have paved the way for me to be a Doctor in this great country: family, friends, wonderful patients whom I am privileged to serve, my Dermatology Program Director Dr. Grekin who taught me how to “SHOW others you care,” Tony Robbins for teaching me how to live with passion, and my beautiful wife who I am so blessed to know. Thank you for allowing me to be part of the team which is privileged to ‘help you become comfortable in your skin.®’”
