Dr. Michael Tolwin was my psychiatrist for over 14 years, until I had to move from Cali to Oklahoma. He is a very good listener, extremely intelligent, understood my personal problems, gave me excellent advice, prescribed an anti-depressant that turned my life around for the better, and his staff was always pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Tolwin.

do not give this office your social security number and make sure your nursing home does not give your number to this office. i have been reporting medicare fraud for several years and this office continues to bill for services to a nursing home patient who receives no services. Medicare pays no attention nor does Anthem Blue Cross...they just pay the bills even though they are told REPEATEDLY NO SERVICES ARE PROVIDED.
