This exposure motivated him to pursue plastic surgery as a calling and ultimately attend medical school at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. He followed this up with surgical training in New York for a year and ultimately completed his surgery residency in the Ivy leagues at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. After passing his General Surgery boards he continued his path by completing plastic surgery training at the prestigious University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky. There he was exposed to complex hand surgery, trauma and cancer reconstruction, and cosmetic surgery under the auspices of world-renowned plastic surgeons. He has published and presented at national plastic surgery meetings, taking pride in contributing to the education of residents, fellows, and medical students. Finally, 16 years after leaving California to begin his medical education he is ecstatic to return home to Pasadena and set up practice with his father. He is humbled and honored to be able to accomplish the goal he had set for himself 25 years ago and looks forward to working alongside his own father as a career.
“Dr. O’Toole and his staff are amazingly warm and comforting. I felt comfortable asking as many questions as I wanted and left feeling completely confident in my plastic surgery treatment. Dr. O’Toole was my breast implant surgeon and after 20 years, I wouldn’t go to anyone else for future body beautification needs. In fact, I love his work so much, that I have referred my mom and she has happily booked her appointment already. He is truly the best plastic surgeon! Love you all!”Read All Testimonials
