My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

After practicing medicine for 30 years, I feel fortunate to be part of the MDVIP personalized healthcare model. It has enabled me to care for my patients more proactively and to focus on prevention and wellness. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am able to get to know you as a whole person and understand all the issues in your life that impact your health. My patients and I have time to talk and I have time to listen. I am able to see you quickly in the office or at home when the need arises and support you and your family in times of illness. I partner with my patients to help them achieve their personal goals and enjoy happier, healthier lives.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Anderson

from Patricia in TN March 21, 2023 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

My first visit to Dr. Anderson I was seventeen years old and I'm 56 now. He has always spent as much time with me as needed never feeling like I was rushed. If I call the office he always responds in a timely manner. He has helped me deal with and get through many anxiety and panic attacks. My most recent struggle was with my cholesterol. With help from Dr. Anderson all my numbers are now… See more

I want to tell you about my Doctor , Edwin Anderson! I’ve had two strokes in the past few years one in 2012 and another in 2019.

from Mike in TN March 11, 2020 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

Dr. Anderson has been a God-send to my wife and I, though he probably does not realize it. We are blessed; we have a wonderful and healthy family with few issues. However, we have had a number of issues over the years - many of which were handled less than optimally prior to meeting Dr. Anderson. Some of those challenges remain today but the bigger issue for us is that the worry and… See more

from Cynthia in TN March 10, 2020 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

When I became a patient of Dr. Anderson way back when, I was having allergic reaction to medicines and my blood pressure stayed in the danger zone. Dr. Anderson had to really work hard to get my allergies and blood pressure to a normal state. Back in 2008, I had to have emergency surgery because of stomach blockage and I went to Skyline. The only reason why I went to Skyline was because it… See more

from Randy in TN February 28, 2020 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

Dr. Ed is a kind, considerate human being who also happens to be a doctor. He always can make me take care of myself when I think I don’t need taking care of. And he’s a good friend. What a combination — great doctor and great friend.
