    I would absolutely recommend Dr. Toriumi to anyone who is having a rhino/septoplastic surgery. Dr.Toriumi actually did my revision as my first surgery by another physician was unsuccessful. I will say that my experience and outcome has been even better than I had hoped. Dr. Toriumi's level of skill and vast experience is why I chose him, and I could not be more satisfied.I can truly say that if I had the opportunity to do it again, I would, and I would not change a thing.Thank you, Dr. Toriumi!
