Patient Testimonials

August 5, 2019


Dr. Anderson has a minimally invasive approach that has encouraged surgical intervention as a last resort. He is very thorough in treatment plans that are results based. I have referred close family and friends to him who have been overly satisfied with his level of care, bedside manners and follow up care. Due to the reputation Dr. Anderson has made for himself in the level of care he provides, knowledge, and approach he feels is in his patients best interest, I feel confident and comfortable making the decision to have my 96 year old grandmother become a new patient of his.

I had my initial consult with Dr. Anderson and was so pleased! He has the bedside manner that you can’t find anymore! He took the time to visit with me, explain things to me, and helped me work through my choices! I would recommend Dr. Anderson to anyone looking for a surgeon who actually listens to his patients. I will be working with Dr. Anderson through my knee injury recovery.

Dr. David Anderson is simply the “BEST “. With his expertise in surgery and his guidance throughout the whole procedure, I have been given a new lease on life. I limped and struggled for many years with extreme pain located in my right knee. Dr. Anderson performed such accuracy that I have the strength and confidence to do enjoy life – PAIN FREE. Thank you Dr. Anderson for having the super ability to not only change my life but also you are a GREAT communicator.  THANKS AGAIN!

“I have had a most positive experience with Twin Cities Orthopedics. From walking into the very warm looking facility to the very professional staff people, I feel I am in great hands,” said Bill F., a patient of David Anderson, MD. Dr. Anderson “takes the time to both listen and articulate in a way that shows he really cares,” he said.The atmosphere at TCO Edina is very relaxed and professional, providing “the best environment for healing,” he said. As a 29 year survivor of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Bill explains that he has seen many doctors but has “never received such professional care” as what he has experienced at Twin Cities Orthopedics.
