This is the worst health practitioner I have ever seen. No ethic, no values. There is no compassion about patient's feelings or pain. Doctor's oath has been disrespected. I would not recommend him to anybody. I am still suffering consequences of his bad judgement. Please do not go through everything I went through. There are better physicians with vocation. Appointments are not accurate in time and location.

Very good!! I saw Dr. Tolchin for the first time back in 2015 . He was very thorough with my records. I loved that I did not have to go and schedule xrays at another location as those were done in office. He explained was wrong thoroughly. I then saw him again in 2016 in which as a follow up was also very thorough and explained changes in my back. I recently saw him and my back has gotten worse and I was very surprised to receive a call from his office letting me the results of a couple of xrays and MRIs. I also was explained my options. The only bad experience is getting a call back for more explanation on my situation. I did start with some injections and the doctor from the practice that this this procedure was very helpful and eased some of my anxiety explaining what was going to happen and how I may feel afterwards. I called to schedule follow up and let the doc know I was in pain and the office staff was very helpful and did get back to me quickly.

I would never let anyone go to this docotor. The rudest phone staff in his office I have ever dealt with in my life. Truly amazing how a disabled veteran is dealt with.

Dr Tolchin is a caring and excellent Doctor. He takes his time with patients. My only problem is connecting with someone in the office. I've called 15x in the last two days to ask about my medicine and cannot talk to anyone. It just rings and rings.

The doctor is great, knowledgeable, & has great bedside manner. This review is 4 the office staff &my experience 4 the last year or so. First, it's very hard to get a hold of someone & then when u do you're left on hold for a very long time. Then, u leave countless voicemails & they don't call back. Finally, when u do speak w/ someone they seem clueless. U have to repeat things numerous times 4 them 2 understand which can b very stressful 4 the patient, they have nasty attitudes & aren't helpful
