Join us in welcoming Alex Anderson, D.O. to Valley View Health Centers!
Dr. Anderson joined us in the Fall after completing his Family Practice Residency at Adena Health. Prior to this, Alex graduated from Ohio University with a B.S. in Biology, and a Doctorate degree from Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.
We asked Dr. Anderson to tell us a little about himself -
I was born and raised in southern Ohio. I currently live on my family’s farm in Ross County, with my wife, two children, and our dog, Buster. I think it’s really cool that my kids are the fifth generation to live on our farm. I also completed my Family Medicine Residency Training in Chillicothe, OH, so for three years prior to joining VVHC, I have been practicing in the area.
I came to Valley View Health Centers because the location is very important to me. Being from southern Ohio, I am passionate about helping take care of my neighbors and friends and Valley View offers a great opportunity to provide total care for patients – both wellness and chronic care.
When it comes to what I like most about my practice is that I enjoy the variety that Family Medicine offers, from prevention, to acute care, to on-going chronic conditions. I am passionate about caring for the whole patient, not only the body, but the mind and spirit as well. My favorite aspect of healthcare is getting to know people and developing great relationships. I believe that great relationships foster real life change and healing.
I’m working at our Waverly Location and in addition to office visits, I can provide Osteopathic Manipulation Treatment (OMT) and some office procedures. I’ll also offer telehealth and I am accepting new patients.
When I’m not at the office, I enjoy playing acoustic guitar, hiking, camping, spending time with my family, and working on the farm with my dad and brothers. I am actively involved in my church. I played many sports growing up and I’m a fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Ohio Bobcats, and the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals.
