Dr. Toma performed total hip replacement on my right hip and I am happy to provide my 5-star rating. The administrative aspects of setting up the surgery through John Muir was occasionally bumpy, but, once I arrived for the actual surgery, the process went very smoothly. Dr. Toma did his artistry in about 65 minutes and 12 weeks later I am swimming, biking and running as I did before my hip started hurting me. Now, I don't have hip pain and instead I fuss with my shoulder, knee . . . :)

Dr. Toma is absolutely incredible! From start to finish, his professionalism, care and expertise made what was a stressful situation for me, very easy. I had so much pain prior to getting my hip done by him and after I feel like a new man. My hip was very bad, but Dr. Toma cleaned it up and did the procedure flawlessly. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a hip replacement.

He has an excellent bed side manor. Always positive and readily available to answer questions he made my mom feel comfortable with both hips being replaced.
