Barbara K Murphy.

I have been an RN for 37 years, and have certainly seen many physicians, in my nursing practice as well as for my personal needs. My first visit to Dr. Toman was for a second opinion on a total knee replacement that was performed by an orthopdedic surgeon in Port Charlotte. Dr. Toman was straight forward on my options, and stated that he could perform a procedure to help with the limited range of motion that I was still having. He also let me kmow that I might not have as much flexion as I currently had. I opted to not have any surgery. As Murphy’s Law would have it, I was having difficulty sleeping, with an intense pain in my left armpit. I saw Dr. Toman, again, and the MRI showed a torn rotator cuff. This was not my first rodeo with this shoulder. I had had the cuff repaired 7 years ago. The procedure was performed on 10/24/12. To date I am 12 weeks post op, have not had any pain for almost 4 weeks and am returning back to work, with no limitations, on 1/21/13. Dr. Toman and his staff are the most professional and caring people that I have had the pleasure of working with. I would not hesitate to have him perform any and all procedures on me in the future, if the need arises. Thank you, Dr. Toman, for giving me back a pain free shoulder!!!
