Dr Andersen is the best. I will miss her when she retires

  Jun 24, 2024
I am not see Dr. Andersen every 6 months so that is why we didn't discuss meds in the 3 month window. When I see her, we do discuss my prescriptions and otc supplements.

Of course, I'm disappointed that Dr Andersen is retiring - We have had a nice run together. I appreciate her professionalism and easy-going manner.When I was told of her retirement - she suggested that I start to Identify a new GP asap - I'm thankful for the heads up and have started that search.I found it curious that Legacy was not able to provide a list of perspective Dr's for me to contact in my search for a new provider.

Dr. Colene Andersen is an exceptional Primary Care Physician and my experience at her clinic is ALWAYS excellent. I know she is in demand; I've had friends and neighbors who have wanted Dr. Andersen to be their Primary Care Doctor but she is seeing MANY patients. More help at the front desk where phone calls are handled; there is at times; a longer wait than I would like. But over-all, this is the BEST clinic I've ever had and wouldn't want to change anything!! I feel quite well cared-for! Thank you for letting me share my opinion(s).

Felt very comfortable talking about anything I wanted.

  Feb 27, 2024
I have no complaints!

  Feb 27, 2024
The provider / Dr. & Nurse Assistant are excellent. The blood work dept personnel have zero social skills present. They act like they don't want to be there. Waited 45 min sitting in the waiting room to not get in. When questioned why, personnel replied with "we called your name three times". I disagree as I was sitting in the waiting room the whole time. I was told to check in at the kiosk again and wait some more. At that I left the building as I had no available time left. Very poor experience.

  Feb 23, 2024
I am very thankful to have Dr. Andersen as my doctor. She addressed every concern I had (as always, with much thought and with very clear explanations). Something about the calm but thoughtful way she has about her as well as her seemingly unlimited knowledge of medical things makes me feel like I'm being well taken care of.

This has been my primary physician for nearly 10 years. She is right up there with the best. I have a clinical background and I trust her care and judgement implicitly.

  Sep 28, 2023
Dr Andersen is a very caring, compassionate & thorough practitioner. She's extremely busy I can tell.Her wonderful MA, Miss Shawna, offered me an earlier appointment with a different provider. But my medical history is a bit complicated and I hate having to repeat to a new provider. I survived waiting. I wish my Dr wasn't so popular! Worth the wait.I would like Miss Shawna Supervisor to know she is amazing & caring!

Always a pleasure to see Shawna and Dr Andersen!
