Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. To "I pride myself on being honest and listening to the patient.  Too often physicians do not listen to their patients. I strive every day to be a better listener and physician.  Also, I treat everyone based on the principle "to do no harm".  I think of my patients as a family members and treat them as I would want my loved ones treated.  Moreover, I believe the patient should be a key player in deciding the treatment plan.  Medicine is a team effort that needs clear communication.  Most importantly, I will always be available for my patients.    "

Dr. To is a wonderful orthopedic hand surgeon. Our daughter fractured her wrist while snowboarding and Dr. To surgically repaired the fracture after explaining her injury and the pro and cons of surgery. He is patient, kind and has excellent bedside manner. We would highly recommend Dr. To!
