Awesome! Doctor! I've not had much luck with any kinds of surgery, but Dr. Toivonen is 3 for 3 with me! 3 different surgeries, all with Great Results! He listens & takes into consideration your wishes if he feels they are safe. Such as holding off on any surgery as long as it doesn't put you at risk, to try therapy, etc. He's not one of those "Fast with the Knife" doctors. He explains things so you understand and treats you with respect. When surgery is the only logical option, he is the Best!
