I feel fortunate to have learned dermatology from Dr. Anderson, he was a wonderful role model for compassionate care. To this day, I hear myself counseling patients with the same examples and phrases that he used. My thoughts are with you in this time of sorrow.

Sincerely,

I was so fortunate to have Dr. Tom Anderson as a teacher starting as a fellow in 1986, and he continued to support me as a mentor, colleague, and friend throughout a long career. We shared many patients and experiences at St. Joe's and the VA Hospital in addition to the U-M clinics. Tom always had a kind and thoughtful word for me and all my fellow learners and colleagues, whether it be in clinical matters or just being friends. He was a great teacher. I will always remember and appreciate his compassionate care for our patients and his sincere interest in advancing our education. He also made his views known in our collective meetings, to everyone's benefit. My thoughts and prayers go out to Noni and the family at this very difficult time. His was a life, and a career, well lived. I will miss Tom very much.

So sorry to hear about Tom. He was a true friend, one of the nicest, kind hearted docs with whom I had the pleasure of working. Loyal almost to a fault, he was a stable, calm, positive person comfortable with his position among some big personalities. He will be missed, and remembered fondly.

Noni, Melissa, and Tommy,
Tom was such an integral part of our Ann Arbor and residency lives that we will always think of those wonderful years as so much nicer because of his presence. He was very kind, knowledgeable, and always quick with a smile and a laugh. His contributions to the department were immeasurable and he helped to pave the way for those who followed in his footsteps. He will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts are with you and your family,
John & Ellen Love
