Dr. O'Toole and his Physician Assistant are wonderful. They gave me new options for my acne that no one has ever done and it is working wonderfully. They were both patient and explained everything and were very compassionate.

Thank God I found Dr O'Toole! After interviewing 3 plastic surgeons I chose him to perform my implant reconstruction immediately following a bilateral mastectomy. He is the only one that suggested saving my nipples. His expertise and knowledge are immense and he is a perfectionist! He is always caring. His office staff is amazing and so comforting. I am so grateful to be a breast cancer survivor - Dr O'Toole and his team made the journey easier and the results amazing.

Dr. O’Toole is amazing. I’ve been wanting to get breast implants since I was a little girl. I’ve always been very flat with barely any breasts at all. When I met Dr. O’Toole he was very refreshing and honest. It was so nice meeting a plastic surgeon that is down to earth and not just wanting to take your money. We had several appointments leading up to the augmentation and the results are amazing. I am so grateful I found him!!! Highly recommend!

Dr O’toole performed my direct to implant reconstruction following a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy. I couldn’t be happier with the results. My recovery was much better than expected, and I look better than I did before surgery! Dr O’toole is a gifted surgeon that truly cares about his patients. He is a genius, an artist, and a perfectionist. He spends time with you at every visit. His PA, Kadie, is amazing as well, as are all of the ladies in his office. They are the BEST!

Dr. O’Toole is an awesome doctor. He changed my daughter’s life. I am forever grateful for his talent & surgical skills. He is enthusiastic, friendly, and open to any question you ask; neither he nor his PA seemed to tire of explaining my daughter’s surgery and what to expect at all points along the way and in the recovery process. He took as much time as we needed with him; he never made us feel like he was in a rush to move on to the next patient. He is caring & honest, and I recommend him.

Trust me! Medical Professional who's been in this field 25 years and worked with many Physicians in our City. Dr. O'toole has a keen eye (a gift if you will). I could tell by talking to him just a few minutes. Any Surgeon can cut, but he knows exactly how and reshapes your troubled area with ease and expertise. I'm so confident now and would tell any person to do this for you. Ive interviewed about 10 Plastics in Pgh...Hands down, the Best-Be good to yourself and trust his Care!

This doctor and his PA feel very threatened if you are actively involved in wanting to understand the details of what they're going to do to you. The PA couldn't answer any of the questions I had. She referred me to ask them to O'Toole. He came in and was very put off with my questions and didn't answer them. When I called back to try and get the answers I never received I was basically told to go elsewhere.

Dr. O'Toole and his team of amazing staff have improved my self image in a manner that I didn't believe was possible. Choosing Dr. O'Toole was without a doubt one of my best decisions in life. As a working mother of three, Dr. O'Toole understood my concerns and needs, and gave me results that exceeded my highest expectations. Thanks to him, I LOVE my body again. I'm a patient for life.

My experience with this practice has been with the Physican's assistant, Kadie Fritz for injections and Botox. She is very knowledgeable and professional. I always take her suggestions as the results are excellent - not too much or too little. The front desk personnel is friendly and efficient. I have met Dr O'Toole and will not hesitate to consult with him concerning my future surgical needs.
