Dr. Tolbert was the most informative doctor I visited in decades. I learned things about Diabetes during my appointment I was never told and never learned from my own research. He was responsive and proactive, developing a starting point to improve my health. I left the appointment knowing why with all my previous efforts I wasn't seeing the level of improvement I expected. I also fully understood Dr. Tolbert's recommendation.

Very negligent physician! Prescribed Lovaza for my triglycerides, a medication which has to be preauthorized with my insurance. 2 months and 4 requests later, he had still not taken care of it, so I switched doctors. He also recommended that I go off glimipiride, despite the fact that the last time I did so my A1C went from 6.5 to 7.7. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone!
