Ken L. Anderson
"In September of 2010, I suffered a cardiac arrest while playing tennis. This has changed my approach toward preventative care in general and especially prevention of cardiac disease. The knowledge that I gained from my personal experience is passed along to my patients in the daily treatment and discussions about risk factors for cardiac disease. As a sports medicine physician, I have always encouraged my patients to be active. I believe that we have the best approach to keeping you active and getting you back to activity as quickly as possible when you are injured. It is our goal to provide the highest level of care for all of your medical needs. When you do need further care we are here to guide the way and get you to the right specialist."
Dr. Anderson went to medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Following graduation in 1984, he did an internship in Pinellas Park, FL. After serving 4 years as an Army physician, he moved to San Diego and completed a sports medicine fellowship at San Diego Sports Medicine & Family Health Center. He is board certified in family practice with a subspecialty in sports medicine.
Dr. Anderson has provided primary care in Pacific Beach since 1989. He is currently the Medical Director for SeaWorld San Diego. He is also the team physician for the University of San Diego and Mission Bay High School, as well as the tournament physician for the BNP Paribas Open Tennis Tournament in Indian Wells and the La Costa Women's Professional tennis tournament. Dr. Anderson also serves on the faculty of several medical schools and provides training for medical students at our medical center. He has been the team physician for the San Diego Gulls, the Buick Open golf tournament, and various other sporting events such as the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon.
