Efficient, effective and pleasant
in Brentwood, TN |
Dr. Coogan is the best of the best and I trust him implicitly. He has successfully repaired two hand issues for me. He is always concerned, professional, and very focused. I appreciate his calm demeanor and great sense of humor. They don't come any better or more highly skilled than Dr. Coogan.
This is the worst doctor I have ever been to. Waited over an hour to see him and he spent 3-4 minutes with me. Rude, no bedside manner, not thorough at all. He bluntly asked me what I wanted to do instead of giving me a complete evaluation and providing expertise himself. It was so confusing and left me feeling very disappointed and helpless with my medical problem. I would never recommend someone going to him.

Staff was great. Friendly and professional. Dr.Coogan is very knowledgeable and came highly recommended by several physicians.
in Cross Plains, TN |
5 years ago Dr. Coogan pinned my right hand when it was broken in an auto accident -- WONDERFUL! Then, Oct. 2016, I fell and broke my left hand -- of course I went back to Dr. Coogan. He pinned my left hand -- WONDERFUL! I have and will recommend him to ANYONE and EVERYONE!!!

Dr. Coogan, his staff, especially Melody, and the therapists Jessica and Scott were all incredible in helping to mend a severe wtist break. It took almost a year and two surgeries but now it is returning to normal. I could not ask for a more competent and caring team of caregivers.
in Nashville, TN |
Severely broke my wrist in an accident on a Sunday. I called Dr. Coogan's office on Monday morning and was able to see him that same day; surgery was on Wednesday. Dr. Coogan did an excellent job on the procedure. The PT/OT staff with TOA were top notch, and I had almost full use of the wrist after less than two months. If you are in need of his services, I am sorry for the pain you are currently going through, but you can trust Dr. Coogan to take very good care of you.
in Gallatin, Tn |
My experience with Dr. Coogan and his staff was very positive. My injury was addressed in a very professional manner and I was given accurate and positive advice on how to enhance my recovery. I got timely treatment and my outcome has been excellent. I am very pleased and would recommend Dr. Coogan without reservation.

Completely satisfied with Dr. Coogan and all staff at TOA. Excellent care and beautiful new clean facility. Very short wait times; best I have ever experienced. Highly recommend.

He was a very kind, patient and knowledgeable doctor and I will refer all my friends and family with hand issues.
in Brentwood, TN |
Dr. Coogan was the most condescending man I have EVER met. He has NO bedside manner. The injections he did in my elbow did not help and I am still paying for the large bill. Can not stand him.
in Thompsons Station, TN |
Post op pain was minimal. My thumb will never be as strong as it was years ago (but I'm not either). The surgery allows me to do everything I want and need to do without the pain that pushed me to seek help. Plus the scar is rapidly fading. Dr. Coogan's surgical skills must be excellent because the results certainly are. Post surgery instructions stressed patience and not overdoing. Five months out and I'm thankful that I had the surgery and that it was done by Dr. Coogan.
in Nashville, TN |
I have been an R.N. for 22 years, a lot of which has been in orthopedics. He is the first doctor I recommend when it comes to hands, although there are a lot of good ones in town. My take on it is that if he can't fix it, no one can. He has a dry sense of humor, which I like. He explains things well.
in Winchester, TN |
Dr Coogan did a great job on my hand. It is good as it was before I hurt it.
in Madison, TN |
Dr. Coogan was extremely thorough in explaining my ruptured bicep, the surgery, and the entire recovery plan. He gave me great confidence that he could successfully correct my conditon. He followed through with a successful surgery and great results. He also seemed to listen to my concerns and made me feel welcome to ask any questions. I'm very thankful for Dr. Coogan and would highly recommend him to others.
in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Coogan was forthright in his explanation of the projected results of my thumb surgery. I have had NO issues and the pain post surgery has been non-existent. I can do things with my hand now that I could not do before the surgery. Subsequent to my surgery, and the excellent results I have experienced, I have recommended Dr. Coogan to several people who seem to have a similar issue to the one I had.
in Paducah, KY |
Dr Coogan is friendly, professional and very compassionate. He took his time with me and explain to me my condition. He put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him. He is the Best! Thank you Dr Coogan!!
