My father had colon surgery performed by doctor Tooley and we couldn't have been more pleased to have him as our surgeon. I had the privilege to meet with Dr. Tooley in person for a pre-surgery consult. I have personally met several surgeons in my time and none have come close to Dr. Tooley's pleasant demeanor, professionalism and unwavering confidence in performing this type of operation. His expertise in this area of the body is vast. He's very personable and is overall an outstanding human being. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Tooley to anyone seeking an accomplished colorectal surgeon. We were blessed indeed!

I unfortunately had the pleasure of meeting Dr Tooley(and Dr Elizabeth Hayes) when I was admitted thru ER for Gall Bladder surgery. Has a wonderful bedside manner and I would definitely refer, if someone needed a good surgeon. My following office visit was also very easy and quick. Thank you Dr Tooley and Staff.
