Verified Patient Reviews
Appointment was scheduled for 12. Showed up 10min early and then waited in a freezing cold room for over an hour and a half before the doctor even bothered to show. I even asked him staff twice what the delay was and they just walked off muttering something about seeing what was taking so long. I'll never go back to this doctors office again.
Dr Toig is very kind and knowledgeable. My only complaint is how he and his staff discuss contraception as if its an obvious or simple choice. Every time it comes up that I do not use contraception I get raised eyebrows, which is pretty uncomfortable.
Very kind, very interested. Perfect service!
I was in the office for something very small and generic and didn't appreciate that I had to wait 40 minutes even though I was the first appointment of the day.
Very helpful and sincere doctor.
He's just fantastic!!
Super smart and helpful doctor. He takes the time to explain the details about my conditions and the impact of medications. He goes beyond basic standard medical guidelines and has a very wide breadth of knowledge. I'm hooked with having him as my primary physician :)
You always have his full 100% attention when you see him !!
Dr Toig is excellent, highly recommend for primary care.
He's the best!
Long wait was due to forms since I was a new patient. Nurse came to see me before him and did the physical very competently. Not sure why I had to fill out forms birth online for the pre check in and in the office, seemed inefficient.
Doctor Toig was very friendly and professional. I was also very pleased with his staff.
Very fortunate to have such caring, knowledgeable doctor !!
Love how much he cares... Makes me feel welcome! Love my Dr. Gary Toig... ??
Fantastic Dr. !!!
Very thorough and friendly. He is now my primary care physician.
Dr. Toig was great to see! The entire experience was awesome, from check in to when I left. This was one of the best doctor visits I've ever had. The whole thing was very smooth and painless and I felt great after. Highly recommended!
He is a great Dr! From now on he will be my prefered ob/gyn.. And will reccomend him to my friends too..
Dr. Toig has a calming influence and guides his patients through his utmost care while ensuring all the necessary parts of checkup is properly handled. He is an ace.
Dr. Toig is the best M.D. that I have seen in a very long time. He is very thorough, professional, and he cares about my health. I'm very happy that I met him and was treated in his office. He is now my primary care physician. I have been looking for a physician that I like and trust with my healthcare needs. I rate Dr. Toig at 5 stars plus!
I was not feeling good for a long time and he listened to me without interruptions and gave the right medicine and I start feeling better right away! I was pleased by interaction and results. :)
Good visit, gave me several prescriptions for my illness. Easy to talk to.
Appointment was quick and efficient. The checkin didn't work though so I had to fill in the form twice.
Dr. Toig is terrific! His assistant Marjorie is also wonderful. This was my first visit and I came in for an illness that required immediate attention (I'm new to the area and Dr. Toig's pedigree as a gynocologist as well as a general practitioner immediately appealed to me.) The doctor has a very warm bedside manner. He is patient and took time with me to discuss a multitude of medical questions I had related to fertility and pregnancy while he treated me (for something unrelated to pregnancy). He is very knowledgeable and he earned my trust.
Dr. Toig took time to completely understand my issues, and addressed each one with a kind bedside manner. He and his staff provide a wonderful experience, even when patients aren't feeling well. I would highly recommend Dr. Toig and staff to others.
I was so happy with my visit to Dr. Toig's office! Everyone from the receptionist to the nurse to the doctor was friendly and professional. I came there with several completely different issues to discuss (from a skin issue to vaccinations for a trip abroad), and they handled each one. I would definitely recommend their practice and see this doctor again.
Asked a lot of questions that were helpful. Took the time needed to get all my questions answered.
Dr. Toig is the best OB/GYN and primary care provider I have ever had. He is very thorough and understanding of my personal health issues. I would highly recommend him and his attentive staff.
I came to the doctor's office because I was coughing and coughing. Dr. Toig took care of my cough, but then, after speaking with me further, checked to make sure all my medication was up-to-date and I was taking it properly and at the right time of the day. Gave me a piece of mind. P.s. Great office staff too!
I had such a great experience with Dr Toig. And it was such a relief because I was having an emergency and I know how difficult it can be to find a good doctor. I had been having very sever cramping for several days. I was back on the East Coast for Christmas with my family. But I figured - it's just cramps, what can anyone do? It will go away eventually. The Saturday after Christmas it was getting really bad. I thought I might pass out several times. But I had an early flight back to SFO Sunday morning, so I just dealt with it. Monday night I was up the whole night in pain, nauseous, dizzy, and very close to fainting. I live by myself, so that was a little scary. At this point, something had to be done. I didn't know what a doctor could do for cramps, but I knew I wasn't going to be able to handle much more of this. I went on zocdoc (I love that app) at 3 am and looked for the first available gynecologist appointment in the area. (I had only moved to the West Coast less than a month ago and hadn't been to see any doctors yet or figured out my insurance.) Dr Toig had an appointment available for 9 am. I got to the office and didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes (probably because my appointment was likely one of the first that day). Dr Toig examined me, and determined my situation was bad. He wanted to send me to the ER. I started panicking and so he calmly explained everything to me, which was extremely helpful in calming me down. He was straightforward about it, not overly negative or positive. And he took into account my views and preferences, rather than his own opinions when offering advice, which I highly value in a gynecologist. He explained everything to me in a way that showed he considered me an intelligent adult. He didn't dumb anything down and I am very grateful for that. He also was very thorough in his examination, which I really really appreciate. Of course, maybe he was more careful because I was in visible pain and something was obviously wrong. So this review may not necessarily pertain to a routine examination by Dr Toig. But in this situation, he was great. Especially for someone like me who wants all the details and hates being in the dark when it comes to medical issues. He also called ahead to the ER to let them know I was on my way and explain to them everything he'd found in his examination. I appreciate that level of care-taking in a doctor! Especially being in the state I was in at the time--not completely clear-headed or fully functional. When I called back a few weeks later to follow-up, he even remembered that I had a friend's wedding the day after I came into his office and asked if I was able to make it! (Then again - who knows - maybe I was a very memorable patient - maybe they know me as the girl who waited until her pain was ridiculously unbearable before seeing a doctor) I never thought that in the course of my emergency, I'd actually end up at a decent gynecologist's office! On the first try too! What a blessing.
He is the most perceptive Dr. I've ever had!!
The team was very friendly and Dr. Toig was a great listener. I appreciated his outline of the recommended options and prescription.
Very pleasant office environment, staff and physician. After not seeing a doctor for years after my previous physician retired, this was a very positive experience.
Got right in. Very attentive and knows his stuff!!
I found Dr. Toig a wonderful listener and responded to my current condition. The office was beautiful, quiet, good location and the staff was very personal and kind.
My appointment was right before work so I was glad that it was timely and the staff were friendly. Dr. Gary took time to get to know me, inquired about my health (and family's health, for any genetic concerns) and was thorough with next steps as well. Glad I chose him and glad I used ZocDoc again.
Extremely thorough! And very knowledgable!
Very professional and supportive of my concerns.
He was very clear about his disapproval of me not using birth control and was not very kind.
I was very impressed with Dr. Toig and his staff's kindness, attention to detail, thoroughness and knowledge. I felt he took the time to address all of my concerns and not once did I feel rushed. He also sent me home with the nasal spray and inhaler I needed so I didn't have to make an extra trip to the pharmacy to obtain it. I'd highly recommend this this physician.
The receptionist helped in finding out the Medi. Number as I was not having the same handy with me. Pretty Professional. Doctor asked questions, details and then prescribed the medicines.
Really takes the time to ask questions and diagnose the problem. I never feel rushed.
Dr. Toig was very accommodating and very helpful. I'm very glad I was able to be scheduled so quickly and have so many questions answered.
Excellent visit. Dr. Toig took time to understand and address my concerns. He is knowledgeable, easy to deal with and does not rush the patient.
Nice, clean offices. Friendly reception staff. Dr. Toig took his time talking with me about my concerns and addressed each one. I only waited 5-10 minutes between the nurse and doctor, which was not bad at all. Very satisfied.
I am so glad I went in! I was in pain and Dr. Toig knew it right off by the look in my face. He fixed me right up and I am so much better. The office staff could not have been nicer. I never have to wait. The office is very clean and professional. I highly recommend them.
Absolutely one of the nicest and most thorough physicians I've ever encountered. I was able to get in quickly, and Dr. Toig was compassionate yet efficient. Highly recommended as a primary care physician.
Really appreciated my visit with Dr. Toig. He took all necessary time to explain everything, answered questions in a clear manner, and was compassionate to my concerns - making sure to address them thoughtfully. I will be back!
Great, gave me all the STD testing I wanted. Did not try to dissuade me from getting tested for things simply because it's *unlikely* that I would have contracted the disease.
Dr. Toig was extremely professional and thorough to exam and address my concerns. I am very satisfied that I found my new physician in my new state of residence.
great, very caring and professional.
I'm not from the area but I tried him out so I could have a local doctor and he was Amazing! Answered all my questions I had. And got me feeling a lot better . Very friendly
Reallly excellent doctor, very attentive and very knowledgable.
Dr. Toig was amazing. I've been to two doctors before who seemed like they just wanted me in for the money and rushed me out as fast as I got there. Dr. Toig saw me, asked plenty of questions about why I came in and answered all concerns I had. Definitely going back to him and highly recommend him to anyone. He's an old school doctor.
He was pleasant, but the wait time was atrocious. My appointment was at 8:30, I got there at 8:20 and finished all paperwork by 8:29. I wasn't seen by the doctor until 9:15, and I was the only patient in the office. There was no one else in the waiting room, and there weren't any patients in the rooms. I wasn't sure if the doctor wasn't there or was doing something else, but a 45 minute wait is crazy when I'm the only patient there.
Dr. Tonight was very efficient and easy to talk to. He was quite helpful and I would recommend him to other people.
The worst I can say about this doctor is that the appointment took longer than I expected. I think I'd gotten so used to being rushed out that I wasn't sure what to do about a doctor who wanted to take his time and be thorough.
hes a good doctor. He uses time well as his staff. The wait isn't too bad and he listens to what ever I explain to him. He is someone I would recommend and I'm glad I found him.
Dr Toig and staff are exceptional!
Dr. Toig gave me excellent advice on a few things that I was wondering about. I was worried about something and he recommended we try something and it put my mind to ease. Plus, I got a flu shot and I didn't feel a thing!
Took the time to answer all of my questions.
Great doc, lovely bedside manner and spent lots of time with me.
He was nice. Asked me lots of questions to get to know me and tried to make the appointment as comfortable as possible.
it would be great if they used fully electronic EHRs
Always gives you his 100% undivided attention and medical expertise!!
The only negative was being asked to complete forms that I have completed many times over the years as a patient of Dr. Toig. I checked in online, then when I checked in at the desk I was asked to verify that the information on an old paper form that I had completed in the past was still correct, then I was asked to complete the same form again once I got into the exam room. I was also asked to complete a medical history form again. it would have been much more convenient if I had been given a printout of a form I had completed in the past and asked to make any additions or corrections to it. The answers to some questions never change (like what my parents died of...) and shouldn't have to be asked and answered repeatedly.
I was impressed with his ability to listen. I'm a nurse and a talker. My situation was a little complicated and he took his time to assess my situation. I usually choose a woman gyne, but I am happy I chose him. I am new to the area and just found him on zocdoc. Very pleased
Amazing Doc! He was so pleasant to chat with and made me feel extremely comfortable. He is wonderful.
Amazing, attentive doctor.
Very friendly and knowledgable. Impressed by antioxidant scan and BRAC test
great! He is a great doctor to have for sure
Dr. Toig is very attentive and thorough, and there is wifi in the office so while there is often a wait it goes by quickly. His office staff is very kind.
Dr Toig was great. He spent an hour and a half addressing my health problems and doing a thorough exam. He asked a lot of personal questions which is why he only got four stars but in the end I felt really comfortable with him and was impressed by his level of care.
I appreciated Dr. Toig for spending so much time with me during my appointment. He thoroughly reviewed my case and immediately eased my mind. I called for the appointment last minute; his office welcomed me without hesitation. The time spent was over and beyond my experiences with previous doctors.
I have been going to Dr Toig for many years and he is an excellent doctor. He really spends the extra time to make you feel comfortable and has drastically improved on his wait times, I rarely wait at all anymore. I'd highly recommend him to anyone who needs a OB or primary care. If you're having trouble getting pregnant he really can help there too.
Dr. Toig is very much of a gynecologist, and will try to relate most medical problems back to gynecology. He's a fantastic gynecologist, and I would visit again, but I would seek a different doctor for general practice.
From when I first walked in ofai( i hope i spelled that right) was very nice and put me at ease as she got my info. Dr.Toig was great he helped me with my questions and listened to my concerns before telling me what to do next. Would highly recommend this team to everyone I know.. SO happy to have found them.
I ended up waiting a little longer than expected, but Dr. Toig was concise, reassuring, professional, and explained everything very well. His staff were also very friendly and helpful.
Dr. Toig is a great Doctor and his staff is wonderful! So gentle and great bed side manners. My first visit here was very helpful! I came in with bad bodyaches and a terrible sorethroat. Before I left I was able to swallow again. He deffinitely convinced me to switch doctors. Great Staff great Doctor.
It was great. He didn't just ask me questions about my visit but asked questions about me. I found him to be genuine very friendly. I will definitely go back.
He is a wonderful doctor for my whole family. Listens, very attentive and thoughtful...he has taken great care of me for 17 years!
Athought he is usually late and he doesn't always explain fully what he is doing, he is a fantastic Dr that has chased a problem I have had for years and am starting to finally get some resolution to. He really does care and takes the time to work on what you need. I guess that's why he is usually late.
I was sick with a sore throat and a cough. Dr Toig is an OBGN but also is a general Dr. I got WAY too many OBGN questions that were not relevant to my appointment. He also started giving me medicine before explaining his overal plan. In the end though his overall plan of attack and thoughtfulness of the whole situation and my general health was pretty good. He is the kind of Dr. that looks at the whole patient and environment to solve a problem and I am finding that rare these days and I will likely go back to him as my OBGN Dr.
Dr. Toig is very thorough, I was there for over 2.5 hours, but I think the visit could have easily fit into a 30-45 minute window if I was his only focus. I appreciated all the time he spent with me, but he was going between several patients at a time, and I don't have that much time to spend in the middle of my day.
There was a wait and it was worth it, he takes his time listening and explaining.
He answered all my questions - is patient - doesn't rush you off. Great!
I had waited 1 hour and 15 minutes and i complained i was seen by dr Toig... I don't like wait
Very knowledgeable and personable, helpful staff, well ran office
Very informative and helpful
always great worth the wait time.
You will never have a doctor spend more time with you!
Always a really long wait. Don't waist your time.
He is expert in high blood pressure.
Appointment was canceled.
