…save your game away from the location, then fast travel back and forth to reset the encounter.

Triggering the Random Encounter

When you fast travel to the Mass Fusion Containment Shed, turn right to find a door. You’ll also see a campfire, which will trigger a random event each time you visit.

Once you’ve found Doc Anderson, you may encounter some bugs, such as the inability to recruit her. If you can’t recruit her, try trading or talking to her. A future patch may fix these issues. For now, you can still find her location and attempt to recruit her using the steps outlined above.

Possible Workarounds for PC Users

PC users have the option of using console commands to try and work around these bugs. By using commands such as “disable” and “enable” you may be able to manipulate the random encounter and recruit Doc Anderson.

Note: that this method does not guarantee success and is not available for console users.

In conclusion, locating and recruiting Doc Anderson, the Level 4 Clinic Specialist, can be a bit challenging due to the bugs present in the game. However, by following the steps provided, you can still find her location and attempt to recruit her for your settlement.
