Martin O'Toole, MD Reviews (373)


It was a very comfortable and professional environment. The minute I walked in I had a good feeling.

Breast Lift

Everyone was very professional and kept me at ease throughout the process. Always took my calls before and after when needed.Best Dr. and everyone on his staff. Great!

Tummy Tuck

Dr and staff were available every time I had a question and concern. I was able to see the Dr. ASAP. Everyone was always accomdating, and very nice . I had a botched procedure done to my stomach years ago. Dr.O'Toole not only fixed my stomach, I know feel that I have more self confidence.


There were no before and after pictures that look like someone like me. I really didn't get a feel for how much of an improvement that would be in a percentage basis

Scar Revision

I will once again need to have my scars revised

Breast Lift

Nice staff Dr was very calm and professional Answered all my questions in a timely manner and in detail of the procedure as well as different options for what I could do.

Neck Lift

Dr is experienced and friendly. But I failed to raise question about my enlarged external carotid arteries in the neck that cpuld be near the ends of the Z cuts

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. O'Toole was very generous with his time. He listened to me and offered insight and recommendations re: the procedures I would like to have done.

Mommy Makeover

Dr Otooles before after results are in line with what I would like to achieve with my decision to have surgery. Also I really like the fact that he follows the recommendations of the company who's medical device he will be using. In my experience, most surgeons I met with are not following recommendations of the device company when it comes to volume and profile. His tummy tuck method is advanced and I believe it will achieve the best results. I loved his professionalism and he is the doctor I have chosen, with no further questions or doubts, to mold me to my ideal image/self.

Breast Lift

Dr. O'Toole was very helpful, explained all my options clearly, but left all the decisions up to me without making me feel pressured one way or the other.

Tummy Tuck

Dr otoole made me feel comfortable and that's very important for me.

Tummy Tuck

My niece just got her surgery done Tummy Tuck and Lipo and she's very happy I've seen the results and I even recommended Dr O'Toole to my co worker [name] and she already talk to your office

Breast Augmentation Breast Lift

Dr OToole and his staff are wonderful! I have waited years for a breast lift and aug and couldn't be happier with my choice. Everyone was patient and answered all my questions throughly. I've recommended all my friends to him! More confident and way more comfortable.

Eyelid Surgery

Unable to schedule appointment but that was not your fault

Arm Lift

Staff Surgeon took actual intrest in me


Dr O'Toole and entire staff always friendly, informative and willing

Mommy Makeover

Dr. O'Toole exceeded my expectations in every area. He spent so much time with me and never made me feel rushed once. He asked me questions and I felt like you genuinely cared about giving me the best results possible. I loved that he was honest about what he would and wouldn't be able to do, and explained everything to me without ever talking down to me. I could tell he sincerely loves what he does and have never felt more confident about choosing him as my surgeon.

Arm Lift

Dr O'Tool is very knowledgable in his profession and his experience and expertisemake a miracle happen.I will defiantly recommend Dr O'Tool to my friendsAnd he is the only Doctor that I will return when I need.

Tummy Tuck

I was not told most of the side effects that happened to me after the surgery. The scar is significantly longer than I was told it would be. It's been months, and the scar is still rather painful. I was not told that would happen. I wasn't told about scar therapy until 2 months AFTER the surgery, and then it was only when I asked. I spent $70 on silicon, and have been using it every day for almost two months, and the scar has not improved at all. My new belly button looks horrible, not at all like any belly button I've ever seen, so I am still restricted from wearing a bikini. I wouldn't be comfortable anyway, as my butt has become incredibly loose and jiggly. I am experiencing horrible swelling on my stomach, and I look just as fat as I was before the surgery. The weird thing is, when I wake up in the morning, my stomach is almost flat. It's not until I eat something and start moving around that it puffs out. It's gross, and I am very uncomfortable, pretty much all the time. By the end of the day, I'm just as fat as I was before I spent $8000. If I had known that 1) the scar would be HUGE, 2) the scar would hurt and NOT fade, 3) my new belly button would look nothing like a real belly button, and 4) that my butt would get loose and jiggly, I never would have done this.

Breast Implant Revision
