I severed my achilles...badly, and was referred to Dr. Anderson. He was great from the beginning to the end of my injury and surgical procedure, leading up to a full recovery. He will always be my go to doctor for anything orthopedic, and beyond... Thank you Dr. Anderson for the great level of care and caring.

These days it wonderful to find such a caring Doctor. Dr. Anderson took the time to listen and care about me. Then walked me through what the MRI found and my options of treatment. Had the surgery now no pain in my knee. Enjoyed playing on the beach with my grandchildren four months after surgery. Thanks again, Dr. Anderson. April

Great Doctor and very nice man.
in Smyrna, TN |
He is a wonderful doctor with a great bedside manner. He talks to you and not at you. He is very knowledgeable and tries to help recovery go smooth and easy. He is very encouraging. I was a long time smoker until I had to have major knee surgery. He told me the only way he would do the surgery was to quit smoking and lose weight but of the not smoking. I quit smoking 2 weeks after I saw him for a knee scope.

I was so pleased with Dr. Anderson during my first surgical experience that I didn't think of seeing anyone else. His care and concern made are why I came back to him.

Dr. Anderson operated on my knee in February 2017 to repair an unusual sports/fall injury. The result is excellent. He carefully explained the procedure to me beforehand, saw me several times afterwards to check the results, and asked me to contact him at any time if I have any questions or concerns. Without this unusual operation, I would not be hiking and doing yoga, so I am very thankful for Dr. Anderson.

Dr. Anderson was very clear in his explanation of my shoulder problem, advised of options, and supported my decisions. He spent time ensuring that I understood what procedures was required for repair and answered every question using layman's terminology. 90 days after the surgery I am almost 100% and my recovery time was virtually pain-free. I could not be more pleased with Dr. Anderson.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
Dr. Anderson provided an excellent experience with arthroscopic hip surgery from the first visit through surgery, post-op appointments, and release. We highly recommend him for anyone seeking a caring and kind physician.

This guy is just the kind of guy you want working with and on you or your family member in a time of need. He is an outstanding surgeon! The only downside is that the private practice model and TOA leave a lot to be desired. Long waits, disorganized staff, and impatient nurses. Feels like a fast food restaurant. However, he is someone that does care greatly about people and knows his stuff for sure. A guy you can count on....

I was referred to Dr Christian Anderson for rotator cuff injury via Workman's Comp that had been operated on twice before. I was impressed with Dr Anderson's knowledge, compassion and surgical skills. He is what you would hope all MD's would be like with a repeat injury and going through WC is usually a nightmare, not at TOA! I never had to wait for reports to be filed, bills sent to me in error or claims processed. Brittany Pittman is his RN as she is fabulous- I would recommend them highly
