2 Royal Queen – Jul 05, 2020


It has taken me many yrs to find the right surgeon. I’ve had cosmetic consultations with 3 other surgeons over the yrs until I found Dr. Gary Tuma. Dr. Tuma is very professional and made me feel like I was the only patient in the world. I didn’t feel like just a number on the books. He and his...Read More

I am very self conscience about my body and was very nervous going to see Dr. Tuma. Well, when he came in, I felt 100% at ease. He did not make me feel bad about my body, just the opposite. He really cares about his patients. He kept in constant contact with me before my surgery and even more,...Read More

Dr. Tuma was extremely caring and took the time to understand and answer my questions about the procedure. The results were incredible. His follow-up care was comprehensive.

From my very first visit with Dr Tuma, I felt confident in trusting him to perform my surgery. Happily I was right

I would recommend Dr. Tuma to anyone who needs Hernia Surgery. Dr. Tuma talks to you in words you can understand, he is friendly and interested in making you better, the best way he can.

Dr. Gary Tuma is an extremely gifted surgeon who performed Abdominal Wall Reconstruction with Component Separation Hernia surgery on me in March, 2018. I was extremely apprehensive regarding this extensive surgery. Dr. Tuma addressed all my concerns and calmed my anxieties. He is a very caring,...Read More

I had a breast reduction done with Dr. Tuma. I was skeptical at first - he seemed a bit robotic during my first appointment, mostly reciting a spiel and not that interested in what I had to say about my own body. He turned out to be a very attentive and respectful doctor. My surgery turned out...Read More

Just had my 2nd breast reconstruction surgery with Dr. Tuma. Both surgeries went very well. After being diagnosed with cancer Dr. Tuma & the breast surgeon gave me all my options, he explained them all in detail, including written information. I felt much better after talking to him, he took plenty...Read More

I cannot say enough what a wonderful doctor and practice to work with. Dr. Tuma's approach and "bedside" manner made me feel comfortable. Questions I had about the procedure both before and after my surgery were answered confidently by Dr. Tuma and his staff. I would definitely recommend to...Read More

Dr. Tuma is an amazing surgeon. From start to finish. Not only did he make me feel extremely comfortable going into the procedure, but he was very hands on and thorough during my recovery. I would highly recommend all family and friends.

My chest reconstruction is still in progress but the work that Dr. Tuma has put in so far is wonderful. He is a very skilled surgeon. He takes time to explain things and is always very pleasant, and respectful. Always nicely and sharply dressed too! His office staff are efficient, respectful and...Read More

I had a very large abdominal hernia. When I went to see Dr. Tuma he explained that the hernia needed to be repaired using mesh to reinforce my stomach muscles. I was concerned about the use of mesh. Dr. Tuma explained in detail the different types of mesh that are available and why he would...Read More

I started treating with Dr. Tuma last November for reconstruction after a 2MX and he has made a stressful situation much more manageable. He speaks TO you and not AT you and explains all the steps and expectations along the way.

Thomas Ledwith in Lawrenceville, NJ – Jul 18, 2017


I have nothing but the highest regard for Dr. Tuma and his Physicians Assistant Dana Keddie. They have treated me with compassion, care and concern throughout my entire process. I cannot sing their praises highly enough. The entire staff treats one with such an air of respect, kindness and...Read More

Patricia Davis – Mar 14, 2017


I recommend Dr. Tuma without reservation. He has performed two reconstructive surgeries on me in the last two years. The surgery on my face last year as a result of MOHs procedure has healed without even a scar. My current problem is active and I do not know the final outcome but I am hopeful that...Read More

When you're faced with an undesired disease, it's almost impossible to think of all the next steps & choices involved. When my world was shaken up, Dr. Tuma & his staff made me feel as if I was their #1 priority. I was not alone in my journey & Dr.Tuma was solid at providing unconditional support,...Read More

Diane E. in Metuchen, NJ – Jul 02, 2016


Dr. Tuma is at the top of my recommendations to anyone. I previously had breast cancer and went to Dr. Tuma to create symmetry. After the reconstruction, it was found out that I had to have more surgery. I have not been the easiest pt. because of past treatment. I wouldn't have wanted to go through...Read More
