TOA Testimonials

"I will recommend TOA and Dr. McGehee to anyone"

I recently had knee surgery to remove a floating body which was causing severe pain. Dr. McGehee saw me quickly, explained the procedure in detail, was kind ,courteous, and has wonderful bedside manner. It turned out perfectly. TOA physical therapy also did a great job as well. All the staff deserves recognition for the great work that they do. The Franklin surgery center also is to be commended. Dr. McGehee also did a shoulder rotator cuff surgery for me in 2017, with outstanding result. I will use and recommend TOA and Dr. McGehee to anyone needing and looking for specialized care.

Everybody at TOA are excellent!

I met with Dr. Bowman and we discussed my lower back situation. He did the first Nerve Block procedure and I felt much better. The second round was completed a few weeks later. I have felt such a relief. Before this procedure I was having a very hard time walking. Thanks to Dr. Bowman and the great staff that work with him, I am feeling great! Everybody at TOA are excellent!

"Dr. Garside is a caring person and an excellent doctor"

TOA is a wonderful facility. I saw Dr. Garside in 2016 for torn rotator cuff and he performed a very successful surgery. It is a long recovery time. I saw Dr. Garside again March 28, 2022 as I had fallen and broken my fibula. On March 31, he performed surgery at Baptist Ambulatory Surgery Center. He put in a plate and six screws. I’m still healing, but I know it was a success. Baptist Ambulatory Surgery Center is also a wonderful facility. Everyone is kind and caring. Dr. Garside’s nurse Brittany is also very good at promptly returning calls with answers and is always so nice. I recommend Dr. Garside for any orthopedic situation. He is a caring person and an excellent doctor.

Dr. Anderson is "absolutely the best!"

Absolutely the best!!! I had hip surgery to repair a torn labrum and a hip impingement and I couldn’t have asked for better. Dr. Anderson was so kind, understanding and very knowledgeable. He took the time to explain everything so I could understand. Taylor, his nurse, was hands down the best nurse I have ever worked with! She is so fast when responding to emails, no matter what you are requesting, she gets it done and she does it fast. I can not say enough about these two!!! I felt 100% at ease on the day of surgery and had complete faith that he would do amazing work! Super pleased!!!!

"Dr. Tompkins is a excellent surgeon"

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.

Successful Hip Surgery with Dr. Shell

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.

Robotic Total Knee Replacement with Dr. Steinagle

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.

"Dr. Snowden was wonderful!"

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.
