Blah. No explanations of options. Discounted my pain; compared it to others who are much worse. Gave me a shot (did not explain what it was or why it was given) and said I could see him in a year. Really?

I have been to Dr. To twice now and I found him to be very pleasant and engaging. He listened to my complaint and was very helpful in relieving my symptoms and pain. I will go back to him as needed as I found him to be a very personable and open Doctor. 5 Stars from me.

I would give a zero if I could. I fell and fractured my elbow. See To he tells me to wear sling, use arm stop if hurts, wear sling in public. After 3 days of 11 pain raising my arm. Go back, short, flailing arms at me say you tell me. I can cast you, get MRI what do you want? I said MRI something is not right. Never went back got a competent Dr. now. Needed surgery or very least immobilized for 6 weeks. Dr. To's man pride is strong and he does Not Listen. GO somewhere else. He is the worst!

I am a seasoned RN of 34 years in critical care. Dr. To's office staff is professional. Appointment times are within 15 minutes of scheduled time. He provides detailed information for you and discusses options in plan of care. Proficient and detail oriented.

I would highly recommend Dr To. He courteously and efficiently corrected my elbow problem. He is an expert in his field. Made me feel quite relaxed and very informed about my problem.

I am reading through these negative reviews and have no idea what these other people are talking about. Dr.To is easily the most friendly and professional mannered surgeon I have met. His staff was very kind and knowledgeable. I broke my wrist and have had seen other surgeons trying to sell me on surgery. Dr. To gave me the option of surgery or casting. I felt comfortable with him and decided on surgery. My wrist is fixed, I am pain free and can use it again! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! A+++

Most arrogant surgeon I’ve ever met in my life. I asked simple questions and was completely ignored. Spent no time with me, initially and appeared annoyed when I asked his assistant to have him come back in because I had more questions (that weren’t answered).

Visited Dr. To on an emergency room referral after smashing my hand in an accident. My wait time was less than 15 minutes before I was taken back to the exam room. Attitude of staff was indifferent. Dr. To visited with me for about 3 minutes. His attitude was condescending and arrogant. While I don’t mind a condescending physician, I do expect to have my questions answered. Dr. To was clearly in the room only to collect a paycheck, as he had no interest whatsoever in answering any questions.

Dr. To is an excellent orthopedic hand surgeon. I have been having pain and numbness in both my hands for years. I have seen multiple specialists and have had no significant results. Dr. To was very friendly and professional. He explained to me my diagnosis and gave me the option for for non operative or operative treatment. We ended up proceeding with surgery and I am very happy with the results! I have already recommended family and friends to see him!

Dr. To is an amazing physician. He’s smart, well educated, with an excellent bedside manner. Dr. To instilled confidence in me that he had the ability to get to the source of the sudden extreme pain in my right hand and resolve the problem. I am an artist and I was really frightened! Dr. To ordered X-rays and blood work so he could make the proper diagnosis on the first appointment. No medication is prescribed before the proper diagnosis is made!
