Dr. Tolentino was incredibly patient, empathetic, and understanding. I was late for my appointment and set his schedule back a bit but he was really thorough and talked through different options with me and addressed all of my concerns. So happy to have him as my PCP!
I think it's good that the doc has a nutrition info. I'm starting to take the nutrition stuff more serious because of doc. Very helpful doctor.
Dr. Tolentino has been my son's pediatrician since he was one (he's now four) & I couldn't be happier with the level of service & friendliness he provides. He always answers all of my questions & doesn't rush me out as other doctor's I've seen.

Dr. Tolentino made me feel very comfortable. I'd recommend him for sure but then that would make it harder for me to schedule my next appointment. ;)
Dr. Tolentino is great, very thorough and kind. I'm glad to have him as my primary doctor.
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.

Shows genuine interest and spends adequate time listening and asking questions. Very thorough and great bedside manner. Makes a patient feel comfortable. Highly recommend!
He is absolutely great. Very informative and takes his time .. You can ask any question you want. Not te typical hurried doctor.
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 is great and I have chosen him as my primary care physician from that experience alone.
Excellent, honestly. I choose to see him based on zocdoc reviews. He was actually interested in me as a patient, he was thorough and to the point while being positive and upbeat, and he was informative beyond expectation as to why I was there. I am hoping to retain him as my primary care doctor.
My first visit with Dr. Tolentino was very great and welcoming! He's a very good doctor! :)
Dr. Tolentino was very thorough, friendly and helpful.
Dr. Tolentino was a true professional! It was my first time with him for my annual and he was extremely friendly, informative and helpful. He was very thorough throughout the appointment and kept asking if there was anything else that needed to be addressed. I recently started to take on long distance running and he even had plenty of advice for me and how to keep going! I'm looking forward to having him as my go to Doc.
I honesty had a great visit with dr.T!!! I had a simple physical for my sports team I had a great experience. It was my first time going to a dr with out my parents bc I am an out of state college student and I was made to feel so comfortable and it was very easy to schedule and appointment and dr. T was so nice. The physical took about ten fifteen minutes and I was actually laughing through out the entire thing bc dr. T is so funny! I recommend this dr highly!!!
It was good. He seems to have a good understanding of simple athletic related injuries. Especially in old week-end warriors like myself. That's why I keep his card with his office number handy right next to the bible and other important stuff.
Tolentino is the best! Very very personable. Always willing to answer your medical questions/concerns in depth and un-rushed. Very knowledgable and helpful.
Wonderful. Very attentive and asked lots of questions before deciding on best treatment.
Very effective and professional. Provided me with sample and prescription that was very helpful. Outstanding service.
He's an amazing doctor. He doesn't push medication and actually helps work out the problems your having. Very nice and helpful!
Very professional and helpful.
Dr. Tolentino was excellent. He did a very good job with explaining my test results to me and helping me understand them. He showed concern and compassion for my situation and asked plenty of questions to help him better understand my problem. He is a very pleasant and understanding person. I enjoy every visit with him. - Candace Bland
Very good, and thorough.
He's great, thorough, easy going personality, willing to talk about everything. Really takes time and is super flexible about being in touch without an office visit. The wait time was horrible though!
Excellent doctor, answered all my questions about the concerns I had about my 2yr old toddler without rushing me.
Dr. Tolentino is very friendly and eager to listen. He has a great bedside manner. Highly recommended!
He is an amazing Doctor and a wonderful human being.
I think Dr. Tolentino did learn something about carbon monoxide poisoning from me! I appreciated his patience in hearing my real life ghost story/carbon-monoxide poisoning indecent story.
Extremely pleasant man. Genuine. Very thorough - has no qualms about spending 20 minutes in the office with you, ensuring that he has all relevant information and that you are completely informed of his treatment plan. A refreshing departure from the normal office experience of being shuffled in and out off a room and spending 3-5 minutes with the doctor while he's on the computer the whole time. Highly recommended.
Dr. Tolentino is one of the best doctors I have every seen. He takes time to relate with his patients.
As always, He is a a very genuine caring person. He does all he can to help with whatever the problem may be. He is someone who sits and listens to you and his manner is not one of being in a rush. He is soft spoken,very caring,very sympathetic and cares how u feel physically and emotionally. I am blessed to have such a great Dr. taking care of me and my husband. I will never change my Dr. for another. He is truley unique and one of God's angels. GOD BLESS YOU DR. TOLENTINO!!!
Dr. Tolentino was very helpful. He explains everything in simple terms, and has a good sense of humor as well.
First the office told me my appt was at 2:45 when I had three different forms of confirmations that it was at 5:45 so they told me I couldn't be seen, the front desk was extremely rude and I wasn't leaving till I was seen. So of course I had to wait forever based on their error. Saw Dr. Tolentino who was of no help. He just kept asking me the same questions over and over about my problem, didn't explain anything to me, asked me questions that were completely unrelated to the problem so the visit was way over an hour. And in the end he didn't help me at all with my problem, didn't know what to do. It was terrible and I will never go back to that office again.
So very pleasant. He is a very good doctor. He will be our family doctor henceforth.
Cezar was great. It was my first time seeing him and he took the time to answer all questions. He was also incredibly personable and easy to talk to.
Best Doc I ever had. Would however like to give him work out on tennis court, be I think he's too busy.
Very friendly. Listens to you. Answers all your questions. Pretty funny guy also. I would recommend Dr. Tolentino to friends and family.
