Dr. Anders is a pulmonologist, a doctor who specializes in treating the lungs. He is board certified - in Pulmonary Medicine, Critical Care Medicine and Internal Medicine.
In the office, we take care of people with asthma, pneumonia, valley fever, persistent cough, sleep disorders, emphysema, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Alpha 1 Antitrypsin deficiency and other conditions that affect the lungs. Our goal is to help our patients gain control of their health. We partner with the individual to help achieve their optimal state of wellbeing. We offer state of the art pulmonary function testing and exercise stress testing as well as the individualized attention that a traditional doctor’s office is valued for.
In the hospital, Dr. Anders manages multiple acute illnesses, including those requiring critical care and life support. Continuity of care as the individual transitions back to the home setting is very important.  We assist in facilitating a seamless transition.
