Would recommend Dr. Tooth without reservation! She correctly revised another physician’s unsuccessful shoulder surgery for me. Stellar results! This was done with empathy, patience, and understanding. She also made sure I had access to exceptional physical therapy.

Very positive experience. After having rotator cuff infection after an injection in SC, and subsequent arthroscopic surgery there to clean it out was unsuccessful, Dr Toth re-performed the arthroscopic surgery properly and with very little pain. I have been extremely pleased wit the process and the results for more than a year.

Stay away. My biggest regret is that I ever let Dr. Toth perform surgery on me. Not only is she incompetent, causing severe damage that I will suffer with for life, but she was never willing to meet with me after causing this damage. I would give less than one star if possible.

I can only say that Dr. Toth walks on water!! She did my rotator cuff surgery several years ago and the recovery was quick and not as painful as I was led to believe by "others" having the surgery done by various surgeons elsewhere. I am living out of state and need surgery on the other shoulder but I won't let any surgeon but Dr. Toth touch me!!

Dr. Toth performed 2 surgeries on my left knee in 2013. Hands down a fantastic experience (well as fantastic as surgery can be!) and I would recommend her highly.

The care we have received from Dr. Toth and staff has been excellent. Our 14 yo daughter had several knee issues from birth and the surgery and follow up have been life changing. Dr. Toth was patient, listened, and did not ever seemed rushed during any of our meetings. A+ Highly recommended.
