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.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. O'Toole has great bedside manners!! He always explains everything in such detail, that you walk away with a FULL understanding of what to expect with your surgery of choice. He is kind, soft spoken and extremely knowledgeable! He performed my Tummy Tuck approx. 7 years ago, and I still receive compliments to this day of how AMAZING his job was on my procedure! I refer him to all friends and family! He has my complete trust! Thank you Dr. O'Toole!!!!! See you in September! :)

Revision Rhinoplasty

Answered all my questions. Let me know my recovery time & how the entire procedure would work. Also Sarah the coordinator was extremely nice and helpful.

Breast Reduction

He met me in his office first - I was able to see the pictures of family on his book shelves. We felt like equals talking - seems silly but the other 4 surgeons I met talked to me in the medical room and this made me feel like we were more business partners. He also told me what would happen if something went wrong and how he would fix it (example comprised blood supply), the other surgeons just brushed it off and said it rarely happens. Which is true - but at least Mr. O'Toole seems to have a plan!

Neck Lift

Dr. O'Toole is very warm and interested in providing individualized medical care. He and his entire staff treated me as if I was their most important client. I felt I was a member of the family.

Breast Reduction

Very informative, professional and caring. [Single best thing is...] Very happy with results and PAINLESS!

Total FX Laser

I had an issue with one eye and sent a picture over. Dr. O'Toole personally called me back and told me how to handle it over the phone. He suggested if I still had the problem to come in earlier for him to look at my eye. Lucky for me the issue was gone the next day.

Mommy Makeover

The atmosphere, doctors presentation to my questions were extremely thorough & staff extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable

Tummy Tuck

Dr. O'Toole answered all of my questions. In looking at my trouble areas he was very professional and I felt very at ease with him. Sarah was very nice and made sure I had no more questions before I left.


Dr. Toole, came across very intelligent and warm. He was very straight forward and honest.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. O'Toole took his time with me and was a complete professional. I never felt uncomfortable.


All staff very professional, friendly, and personal. I felt very comfortable with every single member of the office. Staff is on top of everything. From appointment to post surgery everything went super smooth and perfectly scheduled. Staff goes beyond expectations to meet high quality of service. Doctor O'Toole and his staff will remain my to go place at anytime. [Single best thing is...] All my anxiety was taken away. No pain experience post surgery, my recovery was really easy, I followed every instruction given by my doctor. I was positively surprised by the ease of the entire surgical process.
