Patient reviews for Dr. James Tozzi
This was a return visit for a condition that returned two years after Dr.Tozzi peformed surgery on me for that same condition on the other side. He was very honest and thoughtful and provided me with a good explanation of potential underlying causes and treatments. He also took the time to dig up an old MRI and compare with the current one to discuss the trends and future prospects.
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 on one 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.
Pamela,Lima,Maria,Blair and Dr.Tozzi were all excellent......
We had many questions about pending surgery; all were answered. Dr. Tozzi is great to deal with.
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 repeat back 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. He made me second guess myself and my symptoms. Overall, I left feeling worse than when I came in.
He doesn't beat around the bush. Knows his stuff, gives you the options, and let's you make the decision that's best for you, where you are in your stage of pain or ailment.
Dr. Tozzi is a true expert. I value his opinion and the outcome was excellent.
Dr. Tozzi is a very qualified and capable Orthopaedic Surgeon. He endeavors to make sure that his patient is informed about their condition. In addition he listens to the patient's concerns.
Tozzi takes time and remembers things from previous years. He's relaxed but professional. Most importantly, he does good work.

Dr. Tozzi has always review findings and preferred methods of treatments for my diagnosis. As a results of this discussion. I am motivated to maintain my independence in the future.
Dr. Tozzi was extremely helpful about my concerns. The other staff members were polite and helpful.
Very professional and helpful
Dr. Tozzi does not do ankle surgery so this was a waste of time.
My visit was wonderful and always respectable, knowledgeable about the issues I am experiencing and the best bedside manners. The doctor is always concerned about my wellbeing. I appreciate everything he does for me.
As always I had a great appointment with Dr. Tozzi. He did surgery on my back and I feel better than I have in a very long time! Been having problems with my knee and he took very good care of me thru that....such a great doctor! He is my mom's doctor and always asks hown she's doing.
Very thorough. He was not rushed and took time to answer questions and provide options and the reasons behind them. Explained the procedures and answered my questions.
Very nice and knowledgeable doctor, would recommend him to everyone I know.
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.
Dr. Tozzi was very professional, his bedside manner was great, he was very patient with answering questions every question that I asked and there were many. I will differently see him again.
Dr. Tozzi is straight forward and cares about the quality of care he delivers to his patients.
