      Dr Anderson was proactive with my care. He took my complaints about my shoulder and quickly ordered an MRI. I had surgery in October. Just completed therapy and I’m doing more than I thought I would be doing. I will not hesitate to call Dr Anderson in the future.

      Dr Anderson is a perfect physician. He has encouraged me throughout my non-surgical decisions. He values my thoughts and has never pushed me towards a surgery and allowed me to heal though time.

      My visit was very quick with Dr. Anderson and not detail with understanding the treatment plan. It was my first visit with Dr. Anderson and I found appointment not helpful and dismissed quickly. I do not have a medical background and I did not have a chance to ask questions that I had written down.

      Dr. Anderson was very easy to talk to and told me what my options were. He let me know my shoulder was breaking down and the 1st two may or may not help but the third was a large surgery with some risk involved. thank you Dr. Anderson.

      Dr. Anderson explained my injury to me and drew a picture of the knee to help me see where I had hurt myself. He explained all my options in detail to allow me to make an informed decision. Although how I injured myself can’t just be fixed a felt good about knowing what to expect.

      My first appointment with Dr. Anderson was on 9/19/19. I was referred to him within the TOA group after my MRI showed an acl tear that would require surgery. Dr. Anderson was so genuine and knowledgeable. He made sure I understood everything that had happened to my knee as he invited me back to view the MRI with him. He then explained exactly why pre-op PT was necessary to minimize potential complications from the surgery. After he was sure he'd answered my questions, he asked if I lived nearby, and if so, suggested I could do my PT at his St. Thomas location. Confirming that, and sensing I was anxious to get started, he offered to see if I could have my first PT session right then. They were able to have me in there within minutes (the PT, there, was fantastic, too). I cannot recommend Dr. Anderson highly enough. Because of him, I feel a huge sense of relief as I understand exactly what this process will entail and what my role is in getting my knee ready for surgery.
