Dr. Tovey and physician's assistant John Jacobi have treated me for a pylon fracture of the ankle. They have explained things clearly, been friendly and helpful at all stages and available when I have needed reassurance. I highly recommend them and their pleasant office staff.

Their system hiccuped and they immediately sent me to collections. I had to chase them down in order to pay. They do not ever answer the phone in the office, it's impossible to get a hold of anyone there. Regarding the problem that I had, I made all of the decisions and told them what to do. they xrayed and said OK.

Dr. Tovey is a kind, compassionate, Harvard educated down to earth professional. He has my complete trust. Both myself and my 80 something Mom are patients of his. He is patient with my Mother. Dr. Tovey also operated on my son who is a Nurse. When my son was deciding who to have knee surgery with he was transporting post operative patients as an EMT. He noticed that Dr. Tovey's patients were consistently doing better than those operated on by others. So glad he chose him.

It was horrible, he only wanted to try physical therapy, did not go beyond an x-ray done at the hospital even though we asked for an mri, or to drain and give a cortisone shot. After at least a month he finally ordered the mri, which showed nothing, then began talking about knee replacement. Once I mentioned seeking a second opinion, he got loud in the office, refused to treat in the future, and was basically acting like a child. Seek a second opinion!
