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!

My wife and are both Dr. Andersen's patients. We have both been extremely pleased with her, and the Legacy team at the Bridgeport office. I had complex questions stacked up for this visit and she listens, in way that is refreshing in the current era (I also receive some VA care, and my GP in that realm is her exact opposite). By the end of the visit, I had a much better understanding of my areas of concern as well as a solid near term action plan, with definite follow up criteria.She, and her MA are terrific to work with, and we are delighted to have had them as our providers these past years.

  Jun 20, 2023

  May 16, 2023
I had no bad experiences.

  May 15, 2023
I was able to discuss a number of emotional issues with Dr. A. as a result I was referred to a therapist in the office. Subsequently I did have a meaningful follow up controllable with the therapist and this was very beneficial.

  May 12, 2023
I do not believe that internal medicine doctors are as thorough as primary care physicians as they have been in the past. They have abandoned any sort of bodily inspection and depend almost entirely on the results of blood work. In the past you were checked out from head to toe for any sort of abnormality that could be felt or noticed visually. It's a pity doctors don't do that anymore. If you had a suspicious looking mole on your back you would not be able to see it, but a visual inspection by your doctor would see it. Doctors need to be a little more diligent about more than just blood tests.

  May 10, 2023
Absolute superlatives all around! Both my wife and I have serious age-related conditions and she has made specialist referrals and coordinated our care excellently. Best PCP we could wish for!
