Dr. Tolia treated my father 10 plus years. My father experienced an emergency in November 2015 and called Dr. Tolia immediately seeking assistance. Dr. Tolia did not call my father back and only spoke to my mother 4 days later after my mother reached out to him. My father was admitted to the hospital for 4 months and not once did Dr. Tolia reach out to find out his condition (a patient of his for 10 plus years). Our experience is one of disappointment and would not recommend him.

Good doctor, however, they overbook appts and you wind up wating up to 2 hours before he sees you. Excessive wating time to be seen.
