    Dr. Willis is a smart, experienced doc. My time with him has been quite good but TOA is a factory. You wait forever, have to go through multiple "gate keepers" in an effort to minimize your time with him. God forbid you have unexpected or urgent issue you can forget speaking to him. Couldn't get anyone on the phone when there was an issue. And now, condition for which I had the surgery is returning which cd have been avoided had they made any effort to ck out other pain I was describing.
    We are very sorry you had this experience at our office. Our goal is to always provide the highest level of care in the most efficient way possible. We will use your constructive comments to try to improve the patient experience at TOA. Thank you for the feedback!
