Great credentials, highly trained (Duke Cardiologist). immediately sat down to talk to me instead of standing over me. Didn't bring a computer in to room! Listened to me without interrupting while i described my concerns. I ended up needing a new heart valve. He talked to all of my family about procedure as well (i'm not a young man) and make sure they understood and were comfortable with plan. He was able to replace my worn-out aortic valve with a new one without open heart surgery using TAVR, where they take a new valve up through your artery in your leg to your heart and replace the old one without opening your chest! I was out of the hospital the next day!! I could not be more pleased with my care from Dr. Tolleson and his staff at UT Health Tyler. They are AMAZING!

Does not explain anything and has no time to spend with patient. During the two visits I had with him he spent less than a total of 5 minutes and when I asked for alternatives to stent insertion, he had nothing to say. That leads me to believe that he only cares about the lucrative procedure of stent placement and not about what the patient wants.

Dr Tolleson was wonderful. Since moving to Tyler I had to establish a new cardiologist and I made the right choice. He was kind and patient while answering questions. He had familiarized himself with my chart from my previous Doctor and we set up a plan for continuing care. He was confident and calming. The staff was amazing. His nurse and medical assistant were kind and very helpful. I absolutely recommend this Doctor
