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!


It was a very good experience.


very good visit.


Would absolutely KEEP this provider!Dr. is a "jewel" HE LISTENED and understood my frustrations! All I ask was for him to be HONEST about my condition and he was! He was the 5th Dr. I have been to. 2 in Asheville, 1 in Charlotte 2 at Winston Salem . Dr. Thomas Freehill had seen me, but I had to have some test, by the time I could make my appointment for surgery, he was leaving for Michigan and gave me a great referral to Dr. Tuohy.After 4 1/2 yrs. I hurt no more!


*Dr. Tuohy is an excellent provider. He is very knowledgeable, kind and patient.


Excellent provider.


Came away feeling very good with the information given to me.


excellant doctor


Since my illness is quite severe it is most important that my providers treat me with dignity and respect and above all show a compassionate heart. I felt as though this provider lacked in this area and was a bit abrupt and not really wanting me to talk or to respect the knowledge I have as a critical nurse for over 40 yrs. I am sure he is an excellent surgeon, but since I am not a surgical candidate, he really needs to beef up his bedside manner. Right now, that means more to me than anything else


Dr Tuohy is a wonderful doctor. I have the utmost confidence in him!


*Dr. Tuohy is a great doctor! So glad I am his patient.


dr tuohy is great.


Dr. was very professional, courteousand understanding of my situation. made me feel confident! Felt very much at ease, even tho I have to have surgery! HE LISTENED TO ME!!!HE CARED!!! Do you know how important that is, when in pain and you can't find anyone that will LISTEN???


Dr Tuohy was very precise about what treatment I would need and about post op concerns I had


Care provider was courteous, friendly & extremely knowledgeable.


My husband and I were very impressed in the manner in which *Dr. Tuohy spent so much quality time with me in exploring the xrays of my shoulder and stating that I needed a shoulder replacement. THe was my first visit and we are thankful. He will be my _____.


Dr. Tuohy is an excellent surgeon. In clinic, he takes time to answer my questions, is very respectful, and seems genuinely concerned about my issues and concerns.
