Martin O'Toole, MD Reviews (493)


The staff was very professional and Dr. O'Toole was very professional and answered all my questions. Parking was just confusing especially for first time clients.

Breast Implant Revision

He is a great plastic surgeon, very professional and his staff. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Eyelid Surgery

My experience with the Doctor and staff was so warm and welcoming they were very informative and friendly and the prices were surprisingly affordable. The office was so beautiful and accommodating. I ended up walking away from my visit satisfied and confident.

Breast Augmentation

He does wonderful work, nice and professional and his staff is very nice.

Breast Implant Revision

My doctor spent lots of time explaining the surgery to me.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr. and staff are very pleasant.

Breast Reduction

The staff in the office are kind and respectful. The doctor is honest and realistic. The information was clearly and completely presented.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. O'Toole and his great staff were amazing! Thank you Dr. O'Toole for the amazing work you’ve done on my breast aug. surgery and helped with the best advice before and after surgery.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. O’Toole is very honest & helps & guides you with your decisions, but doesn’t push you in ways you may not be comfortable with.

Eyelid Surgery

The doctor explained the procedure thoroughly, explained any risks involved, and explained what to expect post-operation. My procedure went very well as did my post-op appointments. I am very happy with the procedure and results. The best thing about this procedure is the outcome - looking into the mirror and being able to see my eyes!

Tummy Tuck

The entire staff is very friendly and very professional. Dr. O'Toole answered all of my questions without making me feel uneasy.

Breast Implant Revision

Patient coordinator couldn’t have been more welcoming and polite. Dr. O'Toole was very efficient and answered all my questions for me.

Breast Reduction

Dr. O’Toole knows what he’s doing. His confidence does not come off as arrogance, like so many doctors. He answers your questions honestly. The procedure was painless, thanks to great anesthesiologist. Everything is well-planned out and organized. After-care was good, too.

Arm Lift

My arms are no longer bat wings and my legs are in proportional with my body. I can now buy clothing that fit correctly and my legs don't get tired as much.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. O’Toole took so much time explaining things and really took an interest in my concerns.

Laser Liposuction

Dr. and staff made me feel very comfortable and Dr. was thorough.


Appearance is disappointing.

Breast Reduction

My breasts felt too big for my petite size, now that I’ve gotten them reduced they feel way lighter, it’s amazing. Clothing fits well around my breasts now and exercising is easier without my breasts coming out my bra all the time. Thanks so much Dr. O’Toole!

Mommy Makeover

I expected to only be there for a total of 30 minutes speaking with the Dr. and coordinator but it was actually an hour, which is a good thing. For the consultation to be free, he spent a lot of time discussing every detail with me and to make sure my questions are answered. I'm positive the details and explanations are a daily routine for him, but the fact that is he willing to take that time to explain makes a huge impact. The time he took in the exam room with me was brief but still right to the point which is what is needed anyways. I heard some Dr.s try to suggest additional procedures or implants, but he didn't. Great Dr. and great staff.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. O’Toole was very attentive and thorough. I felt like he answered all of my concerns and questions very honestly. He didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear but what my results would actually be.
