    How was your appointment with Dr. Anker?

    Aug 04, 2022
    Awesome Doctor. Primary specialty is doing brain and spine surgeries on babies/neonates at C.H.O.C. (Children's Hospital of Orange County), and St. Joseph Children's Hospital. He also performs Spine and Brain surgeries on adults at St. Jude in Fullerton. Both my Wife and I had spine surgery performed by Dr. Anker. We couldn't say enough awesome things about him taking his time prior to and after surgery to explain and answer any questions we had. His attention to detail and his being very nice and not rushed were also very much appreciated. 10 STARS IN OUR OPINION.
