    Dr. Allen Anderson performed my acl reconstruction and medial menisectomy. He did an amazing job. He is very experienced and highly respected around the country. He is a man of few words, but his work speaks for itself. I highly recommend him.

    If you believe in what is said as his "guiding philosophy", you will NOT find it at TOA or from him. I suggest looking up an image of a cattle feed lot where the individuals are being led to slaughter as a more accurate portrayal of his "enduring philosophy"...... you'll have unnecessary x-rays, long waits, nurses who don't return phone calls, or when they do, they are very disorganized. After it all, and you'll be lucky if you're not worse off than you were before coming. Great privatized care.
