Patient Testimonials

Dr. Cook recently replaced my right hip. He did the left 3 years ago. Love this doc! He is so professional and had an easy going bedside manner. He explains everything in understandable language. He even called me with MRI results when he was on vacation. The staff, from the front desk, nurses/assistants, appt dest and PT crew are helpful and caring. Dr. Eby worked me in a day Dr. Cook was not in the office and was equally as caring and professional.

When our daughter broke her arm I was amazed at the level of compassion from the moment we checked in to the day we got the cast removed! Thanks AOS!!

-Todd K.
Brentwood, TN

I am very well pleased with this group. I have visited four of their doctors for different things. Dr. Patel operated on my neck several years ago. Dr. Eby takes care of my back/leg pain. Dr. LaDouceur just operated on my hand. Great job, can't tell it was operated on. Dr. Passmore fixed my foot fracture. Finally physical therapy group was amazing. You can't go wrong with AOS.

-Carol A.
Mt. Juliet, TN

I absolutely love this place. They are always courteous and professional. You actually get a live person when you call in; and they get me in quick, no matter what my issue is. Dr. LaDouceur knew exactly what was wrong with my shoulder at my very first appointment. After struggling for 3 months I finally found a place that fixed my shoulder. The surgery was quick and they've been wonderful in following up with my progress. My son is also a patient here, and I wouldn't go anywhere else. The entire staff are warm and friendly at every visit.

-Dana S.

Dr. Passmore and the physical therapy staff are great. They've taken great care of me over the past few years and some of my other family members as well. I'd recommend them to anyone! Very smart, encouraging, hard-working group of doctors and therapists!

-Jesse T.
Old Hickory, TN

I have been treated always in a sweet and professional manner each time I have entered the office. The ladies are always friendly and willing to help in any way. Dr. Patel always takes time to explain any questions you may have. I will definitely return if I have another need.

-Sharon T.
Tennessee Ridge, TN

Dr. Cook is a wonderful doctor. His bedside manner is fantastic. he makes you feel like you are his only patient. My mother has had total hip replacement under his care. We couldn't be happier with our doctor.

-Michelle M.
Hermitage, TN

Every single staff member always treats me with kindness and compassion. The doctors are awesome! Would (and already have) recommend this facility to anyone. You will NOT regret it!

-Robin T.

The doctors, PAs, and staff here are great. I have been a patient here for 20 years and the staff hasn't changed. This practice offers the same great care even as it merged and grew.

-Patty L.

Dr. Eby and his staff are great!!! Dr. Eby is always cheerful and helps me with my back and sciatica issues! I highly recommend him!
