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.

from Jim & Ellie April 2, 2017 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

We have been a patient of Dr. Anderson since he began his career. He is a very good doctor. You can contact him at any time and he responds immediately. He is very kind and very knowledgeable and a friend. We have been blessed to have him as our doctor all these years.

from Tlima March 23, 2017 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

Dr Anderson is the most exceptional and educated doctor I have ever met, and I am a nurse. He is kind, understanding, and takes the time to listen to you. Anyone would have the best there is if he were their doctor!

from Terry in TN February 5, 2015 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

My doctor treated my mother until she recently died. He treats both my sister and me, as well. He was unfailingly accessible throughout my mother's illness and battle with dementia. He was able to stay involved with her care when Alive Hospice was called in and was always available to us for questions and consultation. His kind and supportive nature has been invaluable to my family and me… See more

It is such a privilege and a pleasure to have Ed Anderson as my doctor. He is coridal, efficient, very caring and always available. I don't know if there is any finer doctor in Nashville. I often recommend him to my friends.

Dr. Anderson SAVED MY LIFE back in 2008. I am able to type this because Dr. Anderson SAVED MY LIFE!!!

from Terry in TN October 7, 2014 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

Dr. Anderson treats both my sister and me, and he treated my 100 year old mom until her death last month. No one could hope for a better or kinder physician. He is top-notch clinically and has the bedside manner that everyone hopes to have in their physician. We have been extremely pleased with him and happy to be in his care.

from Barbara in TN October 8, 2014 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

Dr. Anderson was my Doctor over 25 years ago and when I found him again a few years back, I felt so relieved and grateful. He reminds one of the way medicine should be practiced!

from Saea in TN October 8, 2014 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

I am privileged to be a continuing patient of Dr. Anderson and I may live to be 100 as a result of my excellent choice! He has kept me healthy and active past most of my peers and I am eternally grateful. I also signed my daughter up as his MDVIP patient and will recommend him as the very best of physicians. He listens!

from Rodney in TN February 23, 2014 for Edwin Anderson Jr, MD, FACP

As I joined Dr Anderson's practice 3 years ago, I was an overweight, never exercise, eat too much of the wrong food patient. With Dr Anderson's support, and guidance, today I enjoy a regular workout regime at the Y, eat fish at least 3 times each week, and basically follow the Mediterranean diet . While I've not lost as much weight as needed, there is no question but that I… See more
