The wait time is usually lengthy and I am not a first time patient. I was rerouted to him after my long term physician retired. He is pleasant but not exactly outgoing so if you are looking for a “personal” doctor - keep looking.

I have been under the care of Dr. Tolle for 4(?) years. Two years ago, I would have highly recommended Dr. Tolle and his practice, however, my past 2 annual visits have not been the best experience. If you are solelycoming in for a check up and have the patience of a saint, then go for it. Otherwise, I'd recommend finding a practice that does not triple book the doctors. My appointment was at 10:00 AM, I was not taken back until 10:15 (not bad), but was not seen until 10:50. I have called the front office a couple of times to check on results (per the dr. and nurse's advice) and the front office staff were incredibly rude. I was told to call back around 3:00 today, but will wait and see if I get a follow up call. I was prompted to write a review as I will be reading others for new GPs in the area and thought I'd give back :) I will note that I am a 20 something year old that is hard to anger and this is my first review.

Was looking for a new Primary Care and am very happy I found Tolle. Gave me insight that other doctors had recently missed, and gave me a significant chunk of his time/didn't make me feel rushed at all. Overall great experience.

This was my first visit for a general exam. I really liked Dr. Tolle. He spends a lot of time with you and has a pleasant personality. I didn’t have any major concerns but if I did I’m confident he couldaddress them. The only downside was the wait ( over an hour) which I heard from other patients in the waiting room was pretty typical. Overall, I would definitely recommend him as a doctor.

Dr. Tolle is very nice and competent Doctor however, his office staff is extremely incompetent and unorganized. I waited 2+ hours to be seen for a simple check up. Every SINGLE time I call to request a refill for my prescriptionI get a different story depending upon who I speak with. It takes multiple tries to get someone motivated enough on the phone to actually do their job. Going to pick up said prescription is a problem in and of itself. For example, when I arrived today BEFORE their lovely lunch time of 12-1:30 after calling on Wednesday & Thursday confirming they were ready I was told 1 was and the other were not. Not only were they not ready but Dr. Tolle was not there to remedy the situation so now I must take time out of work to once again go back. They showed no remorse and seemed put off that I was there to simply collect 3 pieces of paper. After this month, I will be switching to a more organized & caring practice.

I had to wait over an hour for the doctor to see me. I finally peaked out to see if he was running late, and then he appeared 2 minutes later. I think they forgot about me. It was my firstappointment there and am seriously considering going somewhere else.
