Been a patient of Dr. Tompkins for over 20 years. He has replaced two hips and two knees and done a revision on one of the hips that lasted almost 24 years. Dr. Tompkins is a excellent surgeon. And as far as I am concerned he is the best.
January 12th, 2022 I fell and hit the floor in my home. The fall broke my hip. I was taken to St. Thomas West. That is the only Hospital that I go to. The doctor that did the operation on my hip did a great job and I'm giving him 5 stars. His name is Dr. William A. Shell Jr. and he is God sent with gifted hands. Thank you, Dr. Shell, for a job well done.
Six weeks ago I had my second total knee replacement. The first replacement was quite a few years ago and was done using the conventional method used by most orthopedic surgeons. This second knee replacement was done robotically and the difference between the two surgeries was absolutely amazing. There was very little pain and the recovery has been fantastic. Several hours after my first knee replacement, the therapist came into my room to get me up to walk to the door. As I swung my legs out of the bed, the knee that had just been replaced went straight to the floor at a 90 degree angle. With the other knee, my leg did not bend, even a little, for 10 days or more. This time, after my second knee replacement, at two weeks my leg was bending at 124 degrees, and I was walking without a walker or a cane and driving my car. I would highly recommend this method of total knee replacement. Some patients are even going home the afternoon after surgery. Now I know why. At the present time Dr. Steinagle and Dr. Greenberg, both with TOA, are the only doctors in Rutherford County using this new procedure. If you are thinking about a total knee replacement and are in pain, don't think about your options any longer, go with the robotic procedure. It is less invasive, little to no pain and quicker recovery. You will not be disappointed!!! Call Drs. Steinagle or Greenberg to schedule your appointment.
Provides good care, is very knowledgeable, and has a pleasant bedside manner.
I can't say enough about all the physicians that I have worked with at TOA. They all have amazing technique and knowledge about their given specialties. Dr. Snowden was wonderful about coming up with a treatment plan, therapy, and eventually surgery when we reached the point where that was necessary. I am a little over a year past my surgery on my back, which required a fusion and disc replacement and I have no pain, no change in movement, and am at the place that I can't tell I even had back surgery. That is an amazing feeling. You can trust the doctors and their team of nurses and office personnel to meet your needs in a friendly and professional way.
Dr. Dyer & his nurse Beverly are the perfect team! They are both the best in their career fields & their knowledge, medical skills, communication skills, genuine caring of patient care, along with treating me, the patient, like a friend/family rather than simply a "file/case" set their practice above/beyond all other doctors/nurse in their field. I refer any/all friends to Dr. Dyer as I've been their patient & they've been "my medical team" for years from knee issues to recent foot/heel issues. I would never go to any other doctor. Beverly, Dr. Dyer's nurse, does the greatest job of communicating information/following up & working with patients which is perfectly aligned with Dr. Dyer! Both Dr. Dyer & Beverly always have a smile to greet you & always add humor to patient care which goes a long way in relaxing me, the patient. Greatest orthopedic doctor, nurse, & practice in Tennessee! No doubt!!!
I have been a patient of Dr. Phillips off and on for the last five years. I continue to be impressed by his professionalism and admire his patience with his patients...including me. I have always had excellent results from his treatments. I would unequivocally recommend Dr. Phillips for your orthopedic physician.
Excellent service and friendly office. I was not kept waiting very long. Dr. Snowden explained what was happening and how it can be helped. Answered my questions and offered his office services if ever needed again. It was refreshing in this day and time.
Dr. Glenn did a shoulder replacement for me in 2016. I haven't had a moments problem with it. It isn't a easy surgery by any means! However, it was effective with a great surgeon like Dr. Glenn! If I had to do this again, I'd go back to Dr. Glenn and pray for as great of results as before.
My first visit with Dr. Brown was amazing. She was extremely professional and one of the most kind physicians I’ve ever seen. She explained everything in detail, giving me time to address all of my questions. She started my treatment immediately and walked me through each step so that I had no anxiety at all. I feel so fortunate to have found her and will definitely return, as well as recommend others. The clinic checked me in quickly and I spent less than an hour total time there.
I'm a 45 year old man who has lived with rheumatoid arthritis since I was 27. I fell in a rocky driveway in the country and couldn't get up. I would have never thought I broke my hip. I waited seven weeks to see Dr. Routh and he admitted me immediately. I had damaged it further walking on crutches all that time. The next day I was doing things I couldn't have dreamed. This man is a miracle worker, blessed by God! As soon as I heal completely I'm having him do my knee. Thank you Dr. Routh!!
I recently had my second hip replacement with Dr. Langan, who is both a kind gentleman, and conscientious professional. In 2018, after extensive research in three states for my best options for a qualified surgeon and family support, I came to TN, staying with my son, and decided on Dr. Langan. He was honest, clear, and very positive, answering the many questions and concerns I had. The results were excellent, allowing me to resume my teaching career after a strong recovery with TOA’s physical therapy department. On January 3, 2022, once again, I chose Dr. Langan’s proven expertise, and sincere care for his patients, allowing for a very successful second anterior hip replacement. I’m forever grateful and blessed to be given my life and mobility back. As well, Dr. Langan's office staff, and nurse Ashley, have always been very friendly, and conscientious regarding appointments, calls, and patient needs. The physical therapy team are true pro’s and work closely with Dr. Langan and staff, to provide optimum results for the best recovery. In these “uncertain times,” having Dr. Langan as my surgeon, his staff and PT support is a blessing. He supports my ambitious recovery, but is clear on his wisdom to “Listen to Your Body.” I’m proud and grateful to God, for entrusting this “one of a kind doctor” and gentleman, as I return to a full and active life!
