Dr. Annest is a skillful and sought after surgeon! He's very intelligent and thorough and has a ton of experience with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS). His clinical appointments are limited to a day a week which can make things difficult sometimes. His staff is very busy so prompt responses are not always the norm. He can be preoccupied at times so you have to be direct with your line of questions, and don't be afraid to ask him repeat his thoughts/prognosis.
