However, they also want to know their doctor is someone other parents trust and recommend, someone who listens to their concerns, explains things thoroughly and helps them feel comfortable.
Personal recommendations play a significant part in choosing a doctor.
That is why every year New Jersey Family magazine asks its readers to recommend the best pediatric doctors and specialists in the New Jersey area. For 2016, these parents have chosen Dr. Richard Anderson as one of their “Favorite Kids’ Docs.”
Dr. Anderson is an Associate Professor of Neurological Surgery at Columbia University Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He is also the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at The Valley Hospital and St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, and an attending pediatric neurosurgeon at Hackensack University Medical Center and St. Barnabas Medical Center.
He specializes in pediatric brain and spinal tumors, complex spinal disorders and general pediatric neurosurgery. He is consistently named by Castle Connolly as one of America’s Top Doctors, year after year.
While these credentials are impressive, they are only part of the reason local parents chose Dr. Anderson as one of their favorite pediatric doctors. New Jersey Family asked parents to give their personal recommendations for the doctors they have had the best overall experience with, the doctors who were the most caring and compassionate on top of their technical expertise. Dr. Anderson was a top choice by parents on all fronts.
The best way to experience Dr. Anderson’s enthusiasm and compassion for working with children is to watch the videos on his bio page. Here you’ll get to know the doctor in his own words and see why New Jersey Family magazine’s parents chose him.
Congratulations to Dr. Anderson for being named one of New Jersey’s Favorite Kids’ Docs!
