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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
