I have been a patient of Dr Tokaz for about 4 years. He has been very kind and patient every visit. Dr Tokaz takes time to explain all issues concerning my health. I have great confidence in him. I trust he is looking out for me and will do everything necessary to keep me healthy.

Presently Dr. Tokaz is determining why my Hemoglobin level has dropped and difficult to stabilize such to an acceptable level. Appreciate his caring nature. He is working hard to find the solution. Today ( 7 Oct 2021 ) improvement in my energy has been great and rating of Hemoglobin has risen sufficiently. Good work, Dr. Tokaz

Dr. Tokaz is simply the best. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. He is patient, helpful, explains things about my condition and goes the second mile in seeing that my needs are met. I could not ask for more.

During my annual visit with Dr. Tokaz, I found the same professionalism, skill, and concern that I have consistently experienced in my thirty years as his patient. I feel fortunate that I had Dr. Tokaz to rely on for his honesty, skill, and caring during cancer surgery and the subsequent months of chemo. I would absolutely recommend him to my family and friends without reservation.

He successfully planned a treatment to cure my breast cancer and it worked! I'm cancer free for a year now. It was hard and he always listened to my complaints, adjusted my treatment to alleviate discomfort when he could, assured me and reassured me when it. He gives you the impression he'd do just about anything for you but he knows just what you need to get well. I think you can trust him. I'm glad I did.

Dr. Tokaz and Dr. Tierney have provided consistently excellent service to me and my family since 2017, when my cancerous tumor was first discovered. I still see them, either personally or by telemedicine, every six months and have been consistently amazed by my doctors' knowledge and attention. Also, I must commend the extremely efficient service rendered by all of the Texas oncology staff. Being 76 years of age, I've had some experience with doctors, but have NEVER seen a medical organization that is as efficient as those employees of Texas Oncology. Great team and staff.

Dr. Tokaz has the ability to make me feel relaxed and ready to talk about my situation with cancer in my past. I feel confident that my treatment and the care I am receiving is just what is needed to keep me cancer free. After genetic testing I was his first patient to test positive for BRAC 1 and I was given all the information I needed to make the decision to have my ovaries removed. He also made sure that my two daughters would be able to get care if they needed it. I would definitely recommend Dr. Tokaz to others for their cancer care.
