Little patience from both the PA and Surgeon

PA was unable to answer any of my questions on follow-up visit. When oToole finally comes in he starts right off lecturing me. I don't know what the PA had said. She had spent most of the time going over the documents and admit forms. oToole minimized the few questions I was able to re-ask and he informed me that he had to leave as he had other business to attend to. When I call the PA after my appointment to try and get answers to the questions I had asked at my appointment but hadn't received answers she starts lecturing me that I'm too controlling and want too much information. Then oToole contacts me via email and tells me I've been removed from the surgery schedule. I have a friend who is an anesthesiologist and a cardiac surgeon and both of them told me that this was unacceptable behavior from this office. "Patients should be encouraged to ask questions as it improves their outcome" was their quote.

I highly recommend Dr. O'Toole for breast cancer patients who are looking for alternatives to traditional (two-stage) reconstructive surgery. He is very knowledgeable re: single stage reconstruction and is very compassionate towards his patients.

Extremely Happy Patient

Dr. O'Toole performed immediate reconstruction following bilateral mastectomy. I am completely happy with my reconstruction. Dr. O'Toole fit me into his when I had some minor complications. He was never distracted or rushed. I felt like I had 100% of his attention at each and every visit. He is extremely compassionate and truly cares for his patients.
