    I didn't like the answers Dr. Toolan gave me but he was spot on. He recommended against surgery and gave me a course of treatment that worked.

    Dr. Toolan has been an excellent surgeon. I think my surgery went really well and I'm very happy with the overall outcome. His has a really awesome nurse, Jackie, who is very responsive and super nice. I have had not had any issues getting questions answered or feeling like I wasn't getting enough face time with the doctor.
