Las Vegas, NV |
I went to Dr Tolan for thyroid cancer.after reviewing my lab tests and scans, he tried to whisk me off to other doctors, he said he wasn't sure what to do. I had visited other ENTs who said my case was quite simple. I am not a doctor, and want one with confidence, none of that here
Las Vegas, NV |
This guy does not know his stuff. I came here for a second opinion. There was a very long wait. After that, the doctor hemmed and hawed, and in the end just seemed under confident about my condition. Two other doctors offered definitive surgery, but Dr. tolan just seems wishy-washy. When he sai I might have to go out of town for care, that was the icing on the flaky cake. Never going back.
Las Vegas, NV |
Very dismissive, did not listen to my concerns, actually told me " I'm done answering your questions" and that was after literally 4 minutes of meeting with him in the exam room. Shame on you Dr. Tolan!
Henderson, CO |
It took weeks to get in to see him, and he was very dismissive of my issues. I had to go back repeatedly asking for help before I was sent to get blood work, and MRI and hearing tests. Even then, there was no follow up and took months to get back in to finally get a diagnosis for a rare disease (risking even more hearing loss). He is dry and took notes on a dictator in front of me (a little weird). I did like the office staff, though. They were very nice and helpful.
in Las Vegas, NV |
very surprised at other reviews.. first...I found all his staff very helpful. my experience with Dr. Tolan was exceptional.... he was running a little late, and apologized, unlike most doctors He took his time with me and explained everything in detail, numerous times... and then when done, he made sure I did not have any more questions very patient and kind. HE called me the following day, not his staff...to see how I was doing.
Las Vegas, Nevada |
I would never recommend seeing Tolan. His bedside manner is terrible and his skill is extremely questionable. His medical assistant Sonia was the rudest person in the medical field I have ever had to deal with. They were always too busy to speak with me about my care. Asked to have Tolan call me at his convenience and Sonia basically said he would never have the time. She gave me major false information about my care. Lucky for me, she was so incredibly rude that I did not take her seriously.
in Henderson, NV |
He has repeatedly missed the diagnosis on my ear that an experienced ENT in New York diagnosed. I get that it's a rare disease, but even upon suggesting it to him, Dr. Tolan was completely dismissive and blamed it on minor issues. That delayed me getting treatment and risked more hearing loss. He may be fine for a minor issue, but for anything big I would not recommend him at all.
Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Tolan spends very little time listening to the patient's concerns, and a lot of time dictating notes in his recorder. He's very dry - not personable at all.
Las Vegas |
I am not impressed. I waited almost 4 weeks and $30 to be seen for less than 4 minutes. My issues were dismissed almost instantly, with the second half of those 4 minutes spent sitting there while he did dictation on a recorder. Bedside manner was non-existent while I was made to feel like I was making stuff up.
