My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Connecting with patients on any level and speaking in a clear, straightforward yet empathetic way, is my communication style. Being entirely fluent in Spanish has enabled me to connect with more patients than I ever imagined. One of the best compliments I ever received from a patient was "you're really a regular guy who happens to be a doctor". This compliment means so much to me because I believe as a physician, communication is paramount. I also feel that earning your trust and respect starts with "walking the talk" in living a healthy lifestyle. I am an avid exercise enthusiast with a strong interest in sports medicine, which helps not only athletes but patients with any type of pain. 

As a family medicine physician, with almost 20 years of experience in handling all types of chronic illnesses and doing numerous office procedures, I feel very confident in being your "quarterback" - the doctor who can handle multiple complex issues and coordinate care with the entire healthcare team. In partnering with MDVIP, my family medicine practice allows me to have the time to focus on wellness and prevention. I believe preventing problems long before they come to fruition makes sense for everyone. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medicine practice, also offers conveniences like same- or next-day appointments.

My practice is located in Rockville, MD adjacent to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, where I have privileges. I look forward to working together with you to accomplish all of your healthcare goals.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Anders

from Jacqueline in MD March 20, 2020 for Alec Anders, MD

Dr. Anders is a true marvel -- always up on the latest medical research, totally aware of your history, able to consult and handle medical issues whether I am teaching in Italy, consulting in Uganda, or falling on my basement stairs in Potomac. How many primary care doctors call you frequently when you are in the hospital and come and visit you? How many go the extra mile to research your… See more

I experienced a minor burn on my finger while cooking from an old stainless steel saute pan. It was only slightly sore and filled up with fluid. A few days later the finger started swelling and turned red. I waited a few more days to see if it was going to get better. The Wednesday morning before Thanksgiving I realized it might be infected and called up the office of Dr. Alec Anders. As… See more

from Doug in MD March 14, 2020 for Alec Anders, MD

I was not feeling well and went to see Dr Anders and after a checkup he immediately sent me for an X-ray that his office set up. The x-ray unfortunately showed a significant buildup of liquid around my left lung. Dr Anders immediately set up an appointment with one of the best Pulminoligist in the area. The diagnosis was that I have stage 4 lung cancer. Not a good day! Dr Anders followed up… See more

Sign up with Dr. Anders! The ANSWER! I dropped my former GP and my former cardiologist. Thrilled with Dr. Anders on EVERY level. I now finally feel like someone really cares about my health! There is no one better! Galactic Thanks, Dr. Anders! You are THE BEST!

from Jafar in MD March 12, 2020 for Alec Anders, MD

Apprehension about the model quickly dissipated. Both my wife and I, have had exceptionally caring and professional experiences with Dr. Anders. She forgot her medicine once, while driving south from Maryland, and Dr. Anders immediately called a prescription and told us where to go while on the highway. We both consider him a member of our family, always going beyond the expected thorough… See more

from Alexi in MD March 11, 2020 for Alec Anders, MD

I used to dread going to the but with Dr Alec Anders it's different. He is a kind, caring and compassionate doctor who really cares about you and your health. When you make an appointment with him, you get his full attention. He works with you to resolve health issues from helping make appointment with specialists, to a follow up call just to see how you are doing. You never feel like… See more

from Jim in MD March 10, 2020 for Alec Anders, MD

I’ve been seeing Dr. Anders since March of 2013. He is awesome! He spends whatever time is needed to address present and potential future health issues, and he is candid and thorough in his diagnosis of any health issues he sees. He’s a great communicator and is super responsive via the portal and phone when needed. Dr. Anders is as professional as any person I’ve met in any business. He’s a… See more

from Janet in MD March 21, 2018 for Alec Anders, MD

My husband was a patient for a few years, so when Dr. Anders changed over to MDVP I met him at the orientation I was very impressed and also joined. I have never regretted it. He is so understanding and through with his explanations. His advise on how to improve health with yoga and the correct exercises has improved my pain intensely.

from Steve in MD March 8, 2018 for Alec Anders, MD

Over my entire life I have never experienced the level of care, professionalism, empathy, responsiveness and attention to detail that I have with Dr. Anders with any other health care provider. I only wish I had met him years ago. Just recently I experienced back to back severe colds in my upper chest that knocked my down for nearly 6 weeks. Dr. Anders saw me within 2 hours of calling him on… See more
