Please do not waste your time at this doctor/establishment. I was on time for appointment but ended up waited an hour and 45 minutes to see him. He never called me back with my result. After one month, I had tocall and pressed his staffs for an answer and after several phone calls I was able to. What a nightmare!

The visit was great. But his availability is very limited. It's very hard to get an appointment that it's not over 2 weeks wait time. This is very discouraging because he is a great doctor and really cares about his patients.

This was my first visit to Dr. Tolentino. I chose him based on his reviews and I now know why he has a 5 star rating. He is very personable and I did not feel rushed at all. He listened tomy medical history and got me lined up with Rx and referrals. This was as good a visit as I have ever had to a physician. The overall experience at Seton Family Medicine was positive.

He was really kind and asked me questions about my hearing loss that I had never thought about before. He really demonstrated an interest in me and a curiosity about my hearing loss that I had not experienced before. He isgreat and I have chosen him as my primary care physician from that experience alone.

The office was not aware of my ZocDoc booking. I was not on the schedule, but the doctor fit me into his busy schedule. I will be booking directly with the doctor's office, and am disappointed the ZocDoc booking system did not function properly. I highly recommend Dr. Tolentino.
