What People Say About Dr. James Totoro, MD
He was to the point. He was confident. I was recommended to him because he was the surgeon on call/duty at the ER. The surgery went great. He talked to my daughter after surgery. Everything was great over all.

Two months after Dr. Totoro performed my inguinal hernia repair, I can turn back and say he did a good job. His staff was very helpful in the scheduling, pre-surgery instructions, follow up visit and follow up questions, especially nurse Joy. Thank you.
