Dr.Tholen excels at what he does. You can tell that giving people the body they dreamed of gives him extreme pleasure. I was very impressed after my consultation by everyone's friendly and professional manner, and the office is literally lined with his awards and achievements.He met and exceeded every one of the criteria I had. I had such a positive experience through my procedure, and would highly recommend him. I had very little wait time, and he answered all my questions.So happy!

His office staff delayed appointments by MONTHS in order to give the appearance of demand. Arrived for my appointment and was waiting FOUR HOURS for a 2-minute meeting with the doctor, which was utterly useless. He performed no exam whatsoever. Unbelievable.

Dr. Tholen is an amazing man that listens to his patients. His work is amazing and beautiful. I had a rhinoplasty with him and came out with what to me is a perfect nose. His staff is friendly and accomodating. I would highly recommend this surgeon.

I had my tummy tuck and breast reduction in 2001 and it was the best thing I ever did for myself..Dr. Tholen and his team are fabulous. After 15+ years the results are still amazing. I'm now 62 and I highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Tholen for my long lasting results.
in Saint Louis Park, MN |
Dr. Tholen was fantastic from the minute he walked in for the consult to the last checkup I had. He was very welcoming and had a fatherly feel to him - even taking a moment to speak to my friend about quitting smoking. It was a quick and very pain free surgery for my breast augmentation. After I was discharged, I received a phone call from him and his wife checking in that night as well as they opened the office on a Saturday to ensure I had a 24 hour post op checkup. I couldn't be happier!
