Best Breasts

I saw 6 plastic surgeons in Newport and picked Dr. Toohey for my breast implants because he seemed honest and stressed safety. My breasts now look amazing. Now it seems so many people I know had surgery with Dr. Toohey and they look amazing. Christine in the front office was so nice-thankyou :)

I am dr. thoohey's patient a few years ago. I am first time visiting this web site. When I read the review titled " Bed side manner is just as important" , I could not help myself wanting to write this review. I have had very similar experiences with dr. Toohey. he did two major procedures on me more than three years ago. After initial consutation with dr. thoohey, I definitly felt he was the doctor I would choose. I would say the surgery went ok. the results are fair. the post surgery visiting experiences are disasters. he can not accept any questionable opinions. he walked out on me not once, but twice. once, on the day of a small revision procedure was scheduled. I asked two weeks off form my work am all ready for it. He walked out on me just like that! Also he seemed to me he never write or read his notes from previous visit. Sometimes I was shocked he totally forgot what he promised to do this this visit. IMO, he may be a qulified plastic sergeon, with his arrogant attitute and bed side manner, he would never be a great plastic sergeon.

Honest

After meeting with 4 doctors I decided to go with Dr. Toohey and I am so glad I did. Many of the other doctors and staff seemed like they were trying to sell a used car. Dr Toohey was honest and his primary concern was to perform a safe surgery with a great result. Being a mom of two if I was choosing to do an elective procedure I need to know I was going to be in the safest hands possible. I am so happy with my results. There were no surprises or unexpected events because he explained the surgery and recovery in an honest manner. Dr. Toohey was there each step of my recovery becasue HE saw me on each post surgery visit. Thank you to Dr Toohey and staff

Bed side manner is just as important

I've been a patient of Dr. Toohey's for almost 2 years. He has performed a breast implant exchange as well as a lift and tummy tuck. I have obviously spent a good deal of money as well as put a great amount of trust in him. Therefore, when I walked into his office to have a few moles and a skin tag removed I felt I was in great hands. When Dr. Toohey greeted we joked around and talked about funny kid stories and the trials and tribulations of raising children. I felt I had a good relationship with him as I have entrusted him more than a couple of times. We started my procedure and he informed me that the Novocain cream that he was putting on my moles would do the trick of completely numbing the area prior to the needle injection and the actual removal. Admittedly, I have a very low pain threshold so when the needle was injected in the side of my nose I was in definite pain. I let him know that it was extremely painful. Instead of comforting me and giving me another option he yelled in front of all staff and other clients in the waiting room, his words were Im done with Wendy, Im not doing her procedure and walked out of the room. Believe it or not I thought he was joking. I truly thought he was waiting for the Novocain from the shot to kick in so I waited another 30 minutes while he saw other patients. Oddly enough, he walked by my room again and yelled out the same thing. At this point I was laughing because he had been joking around with from the moment I walked into the room. What doctor would do that? A professional would take the time to tell me that he was serious and that another appointment would need to take place with other options. At this point, I was in the office for 1 1/2 hours; areas on my face and neck were completely numb and marked up. I was then turned over to his office manager who was not completely sure if Dr. Toohey was joking either. She had to confirm whether he was serious. Upon her return she told me that he said I could go into the operating room or we could reschedule the appointment. I asked her if she was serious and she was just as shocked as I was by the look on her face. She was very nice and explained that it would be better for me to come back so that I could take an anxiety pill prior to the appointment which would entail me setting up a driver. I must say I was completely shocked walking out of the office, spending almost 2 hours of my day getting a simple procedure that should've been a walk in the park. I'm not really one to complain or take time to write letters as I'm a mother of 3 young children with very little spare time. I feel it's my responsibility to let other people know it's not only how great the surgeon is but it's the bed side manner which is just as important. I feel completely disappointed in Dr. Toohey's actions and will not return to his office. There are plenty of great surgeons out there who are incredibly talented as well as treat their patients with utmost care and respect.
