I loved Dr Tomeh. He made me very comfortable for a new patient, didn't have me repeating information that I told him, was very to the point and I enjoyed that most because I was just there for an annualphysical and am relatively in good health. He told me what he recommended and what he didn't want to do unnecessarily and I was in and out. I printed off the paperwork before hand and that's strongly encouraged. It was several pages, but that's life. Overall, changing insurances was terrible but I didn't care for my old PCP anyway. But I thank my new job, my new insurance plan, and ZocDoc for introducing me to Dr. Tomeh!

I've been a patient of Dr. Tomeh for 11+ years and I have say I couldn't have made a better choice in finding the right Physician. He's always professional and willing to spend time explaining diagnoses and is never in arush. The office staff is always professional, courteous, willing to help and always explain tests that they are performing which I think is a portion of the overall experience. I have no plan to explore or finding another physician because I already have one of the best.

Wow. So glad I found Dr. Tomeh. His office is just a mile and a half from my home. Super nice guy. Everyone who poked and prodded me was pleasant to get all my tests done. I’ve found my new GPand couldn’t be happier. He’s a good conversationalist, too.

After not having been to the doctor in a few years, I was a little nervous. However, Dr. Tomeh was incredibly welcoming and friendly. He was very easy to talk to and I immediately felt comfortable discussing my health concerns withhim. He encouraged me to ask any questions I had and addressed my concerns throughly. I definitely recommend him!

I haven't been to a doctor in years, and I am long overdue to receive a physical. Also, I'm having back problems. So, on my first visit, Dr. Tomeh asked me questions in regards to my history and my family's history.Also, he let me explain all of my physical issues. Not only did he listen intensively, he was very thorough and professional. He even took an x-ray to check on my back issue. And at the end of my visit, he explained everything thoroughly that I needed to know. And answered any questions that I had for him. Also, he referred me to other doctors for the things that was outside of his scope. It showed me that Dr. Tomeh cares. I will be going back to Dr. Tomeh for future visits.

I went in to see Dr. Tomeh for routine annual physical and care for my chronic conditions. The staff was friendly and he was pleasant and kind. He ordered a number of additional tests, that were not ordered by any ofthe physicians I have seen before for the annual physical. He also refilled my medications only for 90 days and wanted to back for a second visit, while previous physicians I have seen provided larger refills. I did return to see him 90 days as instructed and the staff came in to draw blood without any orders from him. I asked for a review of the orders, and they removed 3 out of the 5 blood draws, because they were done only 3 months ago. For this reason, I will not be returning to this practice.

I visited Dr. Tomeh, for a routine checkup -- one that I haven't done in years -- and would consider seeing him again. Despite the dated facility and medical equipment there, his thoughtfulness, humor, and charm helped provide a comfortableatmosphere. The forms I had to sign didn't look all too professional and their online website to see medical results doesn't work well, but those things seem trivial.

He was awesome. The staff was very welcoming. Dr. Tomeh asked questions to learn more about me . My wait time was about 10 minutes due to me being a new patient and having to fill out paper work. Overall Iwould highly recommend Dr. Tomeh he’s everything and more than I expect in a doctor.

This doctor and his staff are super nice, efficient, and really caring. Dr. Tomeh really really cares for his patients. He isn't "fake" and listens to your concerns. He addresses your problems immediately. For instance, he ordered radiologytests for me, which I have needed for quite awhile, but my previous doctors did not listen to me; hence, my tests are out of date. Now, Dr. Tomeh and staff and colleagues are all working together to fufill and address all of my issues in a timely manner. In fact, Dr. Tomeh is helping me to gain the strength and the "want-to" to beat my diseases. I thank him and staff from the bottom of my heart, and so does my husband.

Everyone at the office was friendly and patient. I would recommend coming here. I had forgotten my insurance card and they acted like it was there fault. I really appreciated that even though it was my responsibility to bring it. DrTomeh was friendly and easy to talk to. I enjoyed my short visit with him today!
