Patient Comments (4)
in Boston, MA |
I have been so impressed with Dr. Tolaney—she truly goes above and beyond in ensuring that I receive the highest level of care possible. She gives so much time to each of her patients and I truly believe that her concern for her patients goes beyond a purely professional nature—to her it is personal. I have found Dr. Tolaney to be extremely accessible; even after office hours. Although I’d obviously prefer not to require her services, I feel extremely blessed and privileged to be in her care.
in Camillus, NY |
I was in a clinical trial that Dr. Tolaney recommended. I found her to be caring and attentive. For eight months my cancer remained stable. When it started to progress we discussed new options, each of which she explained in detail. . With a case load of many patients, I never felt rushed. She answered all questions and I was impressed at how quickly an email to her was answered. Nothing ever fell through the cracks and she made me feel she cared about my well being. Highly recommended!
in Taunton, MA |
I have been with Dr. Tolaney for almost 5 years and she has been so good to work with. I trust her judgement, she is always available, she is very qualified and she listens to everything i tell her. She has excellent followup on my care and has referred me out to other specialists without hesitation or doubt.
in Wenham, Mass |
She was far more interested in my signing up for research studies than in my future care. Cold and too busy.
