This award honors an outstanding woman physician with a distinguished career in areas of exceptional patient care, medical education, or research.

In practice, Dr. Anderson receives high praise from her patients, such as “I have complete confidence in my caregiver” and “Dr. Misty is a wonderful doctor.” It goes without saying that Dr. Anderson’s philosophy in patient care resonates within her daily practice of medicine by assuring patients are comfortable with their overall plan of care.
