Dr. Tolan was a very personable person to meet with. She did an inguinal hernia surgery (inserted a mess) on me in June of 2019, about 18 months ago. I had problems after the surgery and she was not around. No follow up at all. My problems have continued and I am now going to another surgeon to correct her work. I would not recommend anyone use her. Even though meeting with her seemed very nice she showed no dedication toward following up her work.
