outstanding care but the provider


As I have stated before, this whole office and staff are excellent, courteous and kind. Very friendly!


Dr. Touhy always takes his time to explain everything.


My condition will eventually require a replacement. He left it in my care...His nurses # to call when I was ready to commit to the point that the pain was not bearable. He could get me in within a week.. Thank you Dr Tuohy


I would highly recommend Dr Tuohy and staff to anyone.


Extremely please with Dr. Tuohy. Couldn't ask for a better provider


do not think he believes me about my arm pain, does not really want to talk about it."it should not hurt" feel like his ears are closed about it


Dr Touy was excellent in his care, skill and description of what to expect and how to manage my recovery. Highly recommend him to others.


very professional


excellent doctor and staff


awesome doctor and nurse


Dr Tuohy is kind and gentle (well as gentle as an orthopaedic can be pushing and pulling). Dr Tuohy was very sensitive to Nancy's need and her progress after shoulder surgery. He was a great help in a long range plan to help Nancy continue therapy to strengthen her overall health condition.


I have been a patient of Dr. Tuohy's with several issues over the last 5 years, and I believe I have received the best of care as he is an excellent, and very caring Orthopedic Surgeon.


Dr. Tuohy was recommended to me when I wanted to a second opinion for an elbow injury, so grateful I did as he said no surgery and suggested rehab my elbow.


Dr. Tuohy is one of the most knowledgeable & pragmatic doctors I have encountered.


excellent care provider


Dr Tuohy walked us through the entire operation. Concerning what he showed us, it was an absolute miracle. Plus Nancy experienced difficulties after the operation and we ended up back at WFU in Ardmore 10 and Dr Tuohy got my call and showed up in the room to see Nancy - totally unexpected. In the hall of our church, Dr Tuohy's name is spoken with great reverence because of all the successful shoulder operations performed on our friends at Reynolda.


Went over all options with me.


Dr. Tuohy is an excellent Dr. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!Kind and Caring! Excellent bedside manner! Which most Dr's don't have!Genuinely interested in his patients well being! I would give him an excellent recommendation!


Dr. Touhy is outstanding physician, person & man. He is blessed to have excellent skills & knowledge. Treat him well.


Dr. Tuohy is an excellent surgeon, and has always taken good care of me. He really seems to care about me, my issues, and concerns.


*Dr. Tuohy has helped me so much.




In my eyes, there is nobody better than Dr. Tuohy. I trust him to be honest with me, and I know that whatever care he suggests for me is what I need. He definitely is not a one-treatment-fits-all kind of doctor. He listens to me and responds with what we decide is best for me. I have recommended him to multiple folks.


Dr Touhy was extremely sensitive to Nancy's need. He was aware of all her challenges with surgery. H e was concerned about her pain, her range of motion, her quality of life. Dr Touhy was our second and final opinion and he was more on top of the options to repair Nancy's shoulder than the other orthopaedic, who had seen Nancy 4 times. Dr Touhy is head and shoulders (pum) above other orthopedics in NC.


I have recommended Dr Tuohy to not only my husband but a friend as well. Both are very pleased with him


Could not have been better!


I highly like and respect Dr. Touhy. I would highly recommend him to a friend in need of care.


Dr. Tuohy is a very good doctor. Would recommend him to others!
