Dr. Tozzi is one of my favorite doctors. He is always straight-forward, honest and takes time to explain everything to my satisfaction. He has done outstanding surgical work and I would highly recommend him to my friends and acquaintances.

Awful experience. Unprofessional and disrespectful. I waited for more than 2 hours. Then, the doctor only took 3 minutes to discuss my results and completely dismissed one of my problem for which he had no interest to treat. He focused onone area he was interested to treat through surgery. He never talked or referred me to another doctor for my other concern and pain. Shocked. i will never ever go back to him and will not recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Tozzi was very pleasant and an excellent bedside manner. He was very thorough, took his time to explain everything in depth and was very understanding. He made sure I understood what he was talking about and had me to repeatback to him a summary of my visit. Not only did he review the MRI report but he actually viewed the disk and also the xray disk. No other physician I've seen other than a chiropractor has ever looked at the images. I would highly recommend Dr. Tozzi. He was definitely worth the 100 mile drive for another opinion.

To be frank, James Tozzi made my visit very uncomfortable. I found that he did not listen to me as a patient and instead judged me based on his own opinions and preconceived notions of who he thought I was. Hemade me second guess myself and my symptoms. Overall, I left feeling worse than when I came in.

Dr. Tozzi provides thorough, easy to understand explanations of the condition that is affecting the patient. He is willing to take the time the patient needs to comprehend what s/he is supposed to do following the diagnosis. You don't feel rushed,or that you have asked a "stupid question" when you are with Dr. Tozzi. I would trust him to perform surgery for me or any member of my family.
