IN THE NEWS
I like the fact that Dr. Tolin gave me options for the care of my knee and he didn't try to force me one way or the other. I asked his personal opinion and he was honest enough to give it. I agreed with him. You don't see that very often.- TSAOG Patient Survey
My physician is Dr. Tolin. He is great. He is outside of my health insurance but I don't care.- TSAOG Patient Survey
Dr Tolin is a great asset to the Ortho Group. Expert at his craft and cares about his patients.- TSAOG Patient Survey
Dr. Tolin has given me a new life. My total knee replacement went extremely smoothly. Dr. Tolin prepared me, answered all my questions, explained the procedure, reviewed the x-rays with us and made me comfortable and ready to have the surgery. His entire staff is a pleasure to deal with. His Associate M. Soulas is also so knowledgeable and caring it is a pleasure to visit their office. I have already recommended friends to see Dr. Tolin. Thanks go to Dr. Tolin for enabling me to live life with a new knee and no pain.- Iris Lieberman, Vitals
I had my other knee replaced 2 years ago by Dr. Tolin. He is an excellent surgeon, careful and thorough. The most important thing to do is to follow all post-op instructions so the surgery heals properly and you have a very functional knee. This has to be a commitment on the part of the patient. I highly recommend Dr. Tolin.- Angie's List
