I went to so many doctors before I went to Dr. Tootla and all I can say is thank god I found him! He diagnosed my problem accurately (something many others were unable to do) and I was feeling better in no time. Highly recommend!!

I recommend Dr. Tootla to ALL patients! It's awkward to have issues "back there." He is an amazing surgeon, made me feel comfortable, and knows what he's doing. I drive almost an hour to see him. =) ~Lauri

From the time I entered the facility to the completion of my testing, everyone beginning with the receptionist was warm, courteous and caring. With such an "intimate" procedure it was reassuring to know I was in a professional environment with a highly qualified team.

Dr. Tootla performed my colon resection surgery for stage III colon cancer (HNPCC) back in February, 2000. I'll never forget his kind bedside manner and comforting words just before surgery as shared some of his own personal history. Having several different surgical experiences since, no surgeon has even come close to Dr. Tootla in showing genuine care and concern for me as a patient.
