Dr. Tokaz is the best oncologist anywhere!
Dr. Tokaz has seen me successfully through two different kinds of cancer, beginning in 1998, I believe. I would trust him with any cancer at all. He is kind, warm, and compassionate. I still see him twice a year for follow-ups, and I look forward to our visits. Highly recommended!!

Dr Tokaz is alway professional and caring. He listens to all questions and concerns. I appreciated the concern shown when sharing with family history and further genetic testing. He has my Oncologist over 14 years and appreciate his care.

Dr. Tokaz, Oncology provider.
Dr. Tokaz is a skilled, knowledgeable, and compassionate medical provider. I have been his patient for almost 12 years and have always admired his 'bed-side manner'. He also has time to briefly discuss non-medical topics to break the ice of a visit with him. Addressing all my concerns with each visit is reassuring to me. What a great doctor!

Active patient since 1998.
I have been Dr Tokaz’s patient for over 20 years. In all phases of my journey with breast cancer, he has been attentive, timely, focused, informative and reassuring in very frightening times. I cannot imagine being with any other oncologist.

Great Doctor
I have been VERY pleased with the care I've received from Dr. Tokaz. Most often I'm seen on time, but occasionally he might be running a little late. But that's okay with me, because on the times when I've needed extra time with him I didn't feel at all rushed. I've been a patient of Dr. Tokaz since 2007.
