My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
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
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
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!
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
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
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
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.
I told Dr. Anders during my last visit, which was a review of my annual physical results, that this is how a patient/Doctor relationship should be. He's the first doctor ever to ask me about my diet. I trust him to advise on my wellness, not just treat illnesses that arise.
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
