in Napa, CA |
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.
