About

Dr. Sean Anderson is board-certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R). He has been treating patients at the EIRMC Rehabilitation Center for four years and is also the medical director of the rehab unit. Dr. Anderson graduated medical school from Des Moines University and completed a one-year internship in Internal Medicine at the University of Nevada-Reno. He then trained at the prestigious University of Texas Southwestern for three years in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency program.

He was born and raised in Layton, Utah and earned a Bachelor degree in Exercise Science with minors in Biology and Chemistry from Utah State University.

Dr. Anderson's desire to dedicate his life to healthcare started at a young age when he suddenly lost his hearing. He visited multiple specialists and underwent every test available to find a cause. Thankfully, his hearing was restored and the seed was planted to become a physician armed with empathy from his experience.

Choosing to specialize in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation seemed a perfect match for his personality and skill set. His love for people, sports, physical activity and experience with impairment all seemed to intersect with PM&R. It has not disappointed! In a field of medicine where patients sometimes feel there is no hope, Dr. Anderson finds it thrilling to explore _with_ them a way to help.

Outside of healthcare most of Dr. Anderson's time is spent with his wife and three daughters. In order to maintain his "man card" he can be found on the hardwood 2-3 times a week playing pick-up basketball for exercise. He also enjoys reading, any outdoor activities, cheering on his favorite sports teams and finding new "authentic" restaurants.
