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
