What People Say About Dr. Robert Dolan, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I’ve seen Dr. Dolan a few times. He took out my tonsils at 33 years old (which is an extremely painful recovery,) he did a fantastic job as a surgeon and a doctor. This man should be honored. I’m alive today because of his quick actions, his ability to remain calm (thereby keeping me calm) and overall professionalism and bedside manner that is remarkable. If there was such thing as ENT surgeon general, I honestly believe Dr. Dolan would be THE doctor to fill such a position (if it was a real thing, like our surgeon general and IF he wanted the job as he’s been fantastic with me, always.) To me, I will always be indebted to him for his actions and thr quick actions of the nurses who triaged me that day and I also equally credit them and the doctors who assisted me once out of Dr. Dolans care as I was rushed to ED from the office, as I was suffocating and didn’t know it (my oxygen level was so low, I shouldn’t remember any of this, but I distinctly remember Dr. Dolan taking charge.)

What a friendly doctor! He had such an awesome bedside manner. He reviewed my case and was the first doctor (in 55 days) to take immediate action and try to help me. Dr Dolan is a pro and I'm so grateful that I met him and that he worked as quickly as he did.
