I have been treated by Dr. Toder for the past 35 years. Some treatments have worked while others haven't. But he is always very attentive and willing to try new approaches. At one point, after developing cancer, he sent me to another specialist in Boston for his opinion. The new treatment has been working well for several years now. I have the utmost respect and trust Dr. Toder. I would recommend him to anyone. His office staff are always friendly and go out of their way to assist you.
Dr. Todor is your typical alfa male who does not take time with his patients, you always feel rushed. There's always at least 1/2 hour wait. Appoints are rushed and he does not take the time to answer questions thoroughly. He is not compassionate and has terrible bedside manners. Would not recommend.

Not open to alternative (read: non-toxic) treatments proven to be successful for some (ex. antibiotics and UCII - Harvard studies; which worked for me through Beth Israel), and prescribed a med that was contraindicated for another autoimmune disease I have which I found out by researching before taking it, thank God (listed here as experienced in autoimmune diseases?!). Went to him in 1998 - NOT impressed.

I have been a patient of Dr. Toder's for about 15 years. i have no qualms in recommending him to anyone who needs to see a rheumatologist. One trait that I especially admire about Dr. Toder is his effort to contain costs. He will always consult with my other doctors to share the results of medical tests (i.e. blood tests,) before ordering them, thereby containing the cost of my insurances both medicare and private insurance. I would recommend him without hesitation.
