Patient Testimonials

Gayle W.

I had surgery on my shoulder in early January at Twin Cities Orthopedics and have had ongoing physical therapy. I am very impressed with TCO. My surgery was done by Dr. John Anderson and I am very confident that I have received the best of care. He takes time to explain the process from injury to healing.

I have received Physical Therapy at TCO at the Southdale Medical Center. The staff has been wonderful, from the front desk people to my two physical therapists; Nate Hammond, PTA and Leslie Luna, DEPT. I have appreciated the superb service and the excellent customer service. 

My arm is almost back to normal thanks to the excellent service and care that I have received at TCO. A huge thank-you to all of you.

I was at 130 degree bend in 28 days, playing golf in 35. If you follow rehab directions and work hard it is to your benefit. It has been 16 months since surgery and I hardly know it’s there. I play pickleball and walk the golf course 4 days a week.

*Larry had a Total Knee Replacement with Dr. John Anderson and was a participant in TCO’s Excel Program
