I feel that Dr. Anstead is an excellent surgeon, and her bedside manner is straightforward, although a bit blunt and sometimes scary. BUT...I would much prefer a good surgeon with a not so great bedside manner, than a mediocre surgeon with a great bedside manner, so I am very happy overall.
Dr Anstead is a rockstar! VM is fortunate to have a physician of her caliber on the medical staff. She earns the highest marks across the board from me.
So very competent.

Things were fairly rushed. She was so kind schedule and I could feel that rush and was trying not to ask as many questions as I would have liked.
Dr. Anstead and PA Katie Barbee are truly exceptional. This is my second surgery with them, and I have the utmost confidence in their abilities to provide a successful outcome for me.
I feel blessed to have been referred to Dr. Anstead. She is impressive but down to Earth when talking to me. She is the best.
Dr. was very good but I felt hurried through the office, especially since she was recommending surgery - She asked for questions but how could I thank about all she said in a few minutes & come up with questions.

I have had a variety of care providers spanning sports injuries to sinusitis. Dr. Anstead is one of the best. This includes physicians in Pittsburgh, PA; Oakland, CA and Atlanta, GA. She is 5/5!
I have recommend Dr. Anstead to everybody I know that have sinus concerns for themselves.
Dr Anstead is amazing. I sincerely hope she doesn´t have to put up with any survey nonsense that many other people in other sectors of business do. She is a major asset for your hospital and with the degree of sinus problems I have and will continue to have as long as I walk this earth, I will go wherever she is providing she doesn´t leave Washington state.
