35 years ago yesterdau Dr. O'toole performed my forst heart procedure. I was one of the first patients to have what was called " Ballon Dilitation " performed here in Pittsburgh. During the procedure the ballon broke and Dr. O'toole had to start the all over again. Although I had two major heart attacks after that, the artery that he opened still is open untill this very day.Just wanted to say thank you to Dr. O'toole and his staff.

This doctor has a good reputation. He gets very defensive when asked a question about his treatment plan, or tests he wants to run on a patient. That, in my experience, is a red flag! If a doctor is that insecure that he feels he has to get defensive, when a patient or family member is just trying to have a polite, educated discussion of the plan he intends for that patient... I quickly get another doctor. A really excellent doctor should be technically excellent but also able to have this discussion with the patient or family member, to help them understand and feel confident in his care.

This man is a donkey's rear. His arrogance is unacceptable. He is rude. I would never recommend him to any human.
