Breast Implant Revision

Everyone very professional and very nice. Very clean office and felt very comfortable. [Single best thing is...] The doctor and nurses.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. O’Toole is analytical, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. Friendly and professional staff. The Doctors, nurses & staff are professional and very thorough.


Everyone was very nice and explained the procedure and recovery step by step. I never felt uncomfortable about calling and asking a question. Doctor knew exactly what I wanted out of my surgery.


I am a previously satisfied patient of Dr. O'Toole x2 surgeries. I was satisfied with my experience this time (a consultation) because Dr. O'Toole and his staff are always welcoming, kind and informative. Dr. O'Toole sits down and takes his time during the consultation. Always a good experience with Dr. O'Toole and his staff.

Neck Lift

The process ran smoothly and was thoughtfully explained. Everything occurred in a timely and punctual manner. The surgeon, his anesthesiologist, and his support staff were kind and professional. Although it may be an illusion, I do believe that I look better and that sentiment has picked up my spirits, even in this unsettling period of COVID-19 and social upheaval.

Tummy Tuck

My experience with Dr. O’Toole and his staff have been great. They are very professional and informative. They walked me through the process before the surgery. I have had several follow ups after the surgery and they have been fine. I really like the way my body looks since the surgery. I feel more confident in my own skin now.

Breast Augmentation

Outcome was great. Friendly staff. I’ve received so many compliments. I am now more confident in the clothes I wear and my body.


Dr. O'Toole is highly knowledgeable. He was very specific on what needed to be done. He recommended only things that need to be done and not over do any procedure for the sake of money. Everyone is very welcoming.

Eyelid Surgery

Doctor and staff were very thorough about explaining procedure. Clean office, safe private environment.

Breast Lift

Dr. O’Toole didn’t make me feel pressured. He let me make my own decisions while giving his professional advice. He didn’t suggest other surgeries, not like other surgeons do. They tend to sell you for more surgery. I felt very comfortable.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. O’Toole took time to explain procedures in detail. He answered all of my questions and made feel comfortable. I’m confident in his skills and experience. I’ve had several consults and this is the one that made me feel like the doctor cared about my health and well being and not just collecting my money.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. O’Toole and his staff are amazingly warm and comforting. I felt comfortable asking as many questions as I wanted and left feeling completely confident in my treatment. Dr. O’Toole was my implant surgeon and after 20 years, I wouldn’t go to anyone else for future body beautification needs. In fact, I love his work so much, that I have referred my mom and she has happily booked her appointment already. He is truly the best plastic surgeon! Love you all!


Experience was as anticipated, generic. Pricing was a bit high and above alignment of other consultations.

Tummy Tuck

From beginning to end they prepared me. He didn’t over promise anything yet I was amazed at his good work.


Since the first day I stepped into the office, Dr. O’Toole and his staff treated me with respect and provided excellent customer service. After my surgery I received multiple follow up calls to see how I was doing and answered any concerns I had.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. O’Toole took his time explaining procedure in depth before surgery. After surgery he & staff went above & beyond to ensure my happiness and satisfaction. I feel like a brand new woman.


My consultation was successful to answer my inquiries.

Tummy Tuck
