10/17/2017

awesome doctor and nurse

10/10/2017

Dr Tuohy is kind and gentle (well as gentle as an orthopaedic can be pushing and pulling). Dr Tuohy was very sensitive to Nancy's need and her progress after shoulder surgery. He was a great help in a long range plan to help Nancy continue therapy to strengthen her overall health condition.

9/25/2017

I have been a patient of Dr. Tuohy's with several issues over the last 5 years, and I believe I have received the best of care as he is an excellent, and very caring Orthopedic Surgeon.

Dr. Tuohy was recommended to me when I wanted to a second opinion for an elbow injury, so grateful I did as he said no surgery and suggested rehab my elbow.

9/12/2017

Dr. Tuohy is one of the most knowledgeable & pragmatic doctors I have encountered.

9/3/2017

excellent care provider

8/25/2017

Dr Tuohy walked us through the entire operation. Concerning what he showed us, it was an absolute miracle. Plus Nancy experienced difficulties after the operation and we ended up back at WFU in Ardmore 10 and Dr Tuohy got my call and showed up in the room to see Nancy - totally unexpected. In the hall of our church, Dr Tuohy's name is spoken with great reverence because of all the successful shoulder operations performed on our friends at Reynolda.

8/22/2017

Went over all options with me.

8/22/2017

Dr. Tuohy is an excellent Dr. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!Kind and Caring! Excellent bedside manner! Which most Dr's don't have!Genuinely interested in his patients well being! I would give him an excellent recommendation!
