19/05/14 1 1 1 5 In my many years of dealing with professional doctors, both as clients and on the services side of the fence, this was the worst experience ever. The doctor was 2 hours late for my appointment. He is extremely arrogant, and does not seem interested in anything but the proceedure itself......He made me feel I was lucky to be in his presence. We elected to go elsewhere......I sympathize with his partners. As good of a surgeon as he may be........he is not for me!  Respond

19/05/14 1 1 1 2 This doctor not only doesn't have a bedside manner -- he seems to avoid looking patients in the eye. He did not seem open to answering any questions at all. The instant he realized that I didn't need surgery, he very obviously lost interest.

24/04/14 1 1 1 4 Dr Toomey had a fight with my insurance company after refusing to submit the appropriate paperwork for a procedure that was needed. As a result, I wound up suffering with agonizing foot and ankle pain for months until I was able to find a new doctor. I wasted MONTHS of my life trying to dicker with his office. VERY unprofessional.

29/01/11 5 5 5 5 I broke my ankle in three places & shattered most of those bones. It was pinned & plated. It's been almost 2 years and my ankle feels great. He did my other ankle when I tore a tendon & I wouldn't go to anyone else other than him.  Respond

18/10/10 5 4 5 5 Very friendly staff, very easy going, explained everything in detail. I ended up not having surgery at this point but would go with Dr. Toomey. Offices were clean --which is important to me and easy to get to.

26/08/09 5 5 5 5 I am a 43 y o female. Dr Toomey performed surgery on both of my feet about two years ago and they are in better condition than I could ever have hoped for. He explained the procedures thoroughly and followed up post surgery. His office staff was very pleasant and efficient. I would highly recommend Dr. Toomey. You can rest assured you will be in the best care.  Respond
