in Bowie, TX |
Everyone at the Texas Back Institute in Denton are wonderful. Dr. Tolhurst is a wonderful and very professional doctor. He was very thorough on the exams and in explaining every thing to me. He has a wonderful bed side manner and very courteous to my family. If every I am in need again I will return to this doctor.
in Prosper, TX |
Dr. Tolhurst and his staff have consistently provided excellent care. Sometimes as a professional I have to reschedule my appointment several times. His staff is always accommodating. Also, I ask a lot of questions. Dr. Tolhurst takes the time to answer my questions and to make sure that I truly understand his answers. Lastly, as a privacy professional I can tell that his staff takes very good care of private information. (The only thing overall that could be better is if he were a Buckeye!)
