Face Lift

I was very inpressed with the Doctors knowledge and how well he understood my goals. He repeated them every time we me. He staff was so helpful, kind, and respectful. I was paniced the second day after my procedure. They provided all I needed to help me. I could not have been more satisfied with how every thing was handled. I look and feel great.

Neck Lift

The staff was friendly and respectful.Dr. O'toole was able to inspire confidence in me based on the fact that fact that he listened to my questions and answered them to my satisfaction. He treated me as an intelligent woman and was thorough in his explanation of the procedures, recovery time, and realistic expectations.

Breast Lift

I felt comfortable with the Doctor nurse and staff. Everyone seems super nice and helpful.


I've been coming to this dr for 17 years. I've had good experience with the dr. I have recommended him to my girlfriend.

Tummy Tuck

I am happy with the results - the procedure was as the doctor stated and the follow up visits were helpful. I love the way I look and I highly recommend this doctor to anyone that asks! I love the way I look! I love my results! My tummy is flat and my breasts look great! The incision was not as bad as I thought and is healing nicely.

Tummy Tuck

Prior to surgery I met with two doctors, one of whom was Dr. O'Toole. The other practice did not provide the lab work or coordinate the necessary EKG. I chose Dr. O'Toole in part because all aspects of care were covered and he assured me he could get the desired results. I did need care after surgery, and everything was provided at the office. The staff are all pleasant and helpful which goes a long way in preventing anxiety when contemplating surgery.

Tummy Tuck

The results were excellent and surgeon made me feel at ease about correcting cosmetic issues relating to the scar if it did not heal properly

Breast Reduction

I have dealt with Dr. O'Toole previously and found him to be nothing but attentive with a warm bedside manner. He was not feeling well the day of my consult and I could detect he was really not into the consultation. I felt as if he was just going through the motions and not really engaging in my questions/concerns. I left my appointment not feeling satisfied, however, Sarah is always a great pleasure to deal with.

Eyelid Surgery

The consult was very thorough, including photos, description of procedure, downtime and recovery plus a price quote.


Great service and good decision.

I've had other procedures with the doctor and have been highly satisfied with his patient care

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
