Arrived at 8:30 for a 9 AM appointment. Was taken instantly through the sign in process, and then for X-Rays. I was taken to Dr. Tolin’s office before 9 and he was extremely friendly, informative and thorough. He looked at my knee in a variety of positions and went over the MRI. To told me what he would do to get me healthy. I then met with his assistant Ms. Emily who was very helpful and both of them put me at easeo

Dr. Tolin was thorough in his assessment of my knee, and in answering my questions. A treatment was agreed upon. I am appreciative of a doctor who listens.

I made an appt. Checked in and when I called to see him I was told he would not see me. I wasted my time and was treated badly. Worst experience ever with a doctor and his staff.

Arrived @ 2:50 for a 3:10 appointment. At 4:05 I left without being seen.An hour and 15 mins.is waiting long enough. So i called to make another appointment and was told 1st open time was 9:15. ( First appointment was @ 8:00) I asked how many were in front of me and was told 8. 75 mins divided by 9 is 8.3 mins. per patient. To me that"s not talking the time to really get to know that person.Since they are above average cost,you would think you could get more than 8-9 mins with him!!

Dr. Tolin was very thorough. He wasn't just interested in what was hurting me at the time of my visit he was interested in getting to the root cause. We live in a society today where everybody's rushed it's good to know that there are still doctors like Dr. Tolin who take their time and listen to their patients.

He is my savoir. I am only 53 and have hereditary Degenerative arthritis in both knees. To be so young and have to undergo a complete new knee replacement was extremely scary. Dr. Tolin took on my case and it has been the most amazing doctor that really cares about my situation. 5 star care and professionalism.

Dr. Tolin performed surgery on both of my shoulders (two different conditions). He is one of the kindest and most knowledgeable doctors you could ever ask for. I hope I never have any other ortho issues but if I do he his the first person I will call.

Seeing Dr. Tolin to determine next steps for rotator cuff tear. Arthroscopic surgery is more becoming the choice of care. I meet with Dr. Tolin in three weeks following injections to move forward. I have trust in Dr. Tolin and confidence in his decisions and ability.

From the first time I meet with Dr. Tolin(August 1,2018) up to my last visit (November 21,2018) outstanding care. I had a knee scope on August 23,2018. Dr. Tolin and I discussed all options and I’m so glad I had the procedure. I’ve got my life back! Excellent care, 5 star service, PT staff excellent. Without reservation, I highly recommend Dr. Tolin and TSAOG.

This highly skilled guy has replaced both of my knees, over a five year period. The lost one was done in September of 2018 and I am so very satisfied. Even though I am 76, I felt that my 'new knee' was normal with in 5 weeks. Range of motion was good and no pain.

Dr. Tolin was awesome. He reconstructed my ACL and I think it’s better than my “good” knee. His staff was very helpful and friendly and his PA, Mike, was fantastic, too.

Dr. Tolin is a very experienced Orthopedic doctor. He provides very understandable information and ask if you have any questions or concerns. I brought a list of questions but he answered all of them before I asked them. He provided what to expect and the risks associated with the surgery.
