I chose a career in medicine for many reasons, but one moment in which a
physician treated me with simple human kindness when I was at a low point
definitely influenced my decision. I chose Family Medicine because I think it’s
ideally situated as a “non-specialty” to have an impact on the community.
Family Medicine doctors take care of the whole family and the community.
I am an advisor. My job is to explain the science and medicine of illness and
health in terms that make sense and then provide advice and options for how to
treat illness and maintain health. I am here to help people align their health
care with their beliefs and values.
Anderson grew up in Austin, from elementary school through high school.
When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with friends and family,
listening to a small but growing collection of vinyl, “making excellent
cocktails,” renovating his 180-year-old home, and staying active to be able to
continue enjoying life for as long as possible. Among Dr. Anderson’s
favorite locales are Enchanted Rock, Hamilton Pool, “anywhere along the
Colorado,” Store House Market, Astro Records – and others!
