Karl Anderson
   Doctor Karl Anderson attended U.C. Davis as an undergraduate, and subsequently worked in hazardous waste remediation in the field of large oil-contaminated land remediation.

    Dr. Anderson's interests include surgery, internal medicine, and more recently alternative therapies to address pain control. When off work, he enjoys the company of his wife, Lori, their three Peruvian Paso horses, and their two dogs Bella and Conan. His outside interests include golf and he is an avid automobile enthusiast.
