Dr. Tolbert has taken care of me since I was a child. Knows not only my medical history but also my husband and my daughter's.

I would recomend Dr Tolbert and the other Providers but not the clinic staff


I pray all people can find a doctors office of this degree and kindness.


DR Tolbert has been my doctor for 25 plus years. This man inspires me to stay healthy. He is kind and caring and always ask about my daughter by name, you see she is 41 and he was her doctor as a child, she now lives in Fl. My grandaughter is 8 and has JJIA, Dr, Tolbert has been helpful to me in explaining this to me and always ask about her too This last visit the nurse was kind enough to take a picture of me with Dr. Tolbert with my cell phone. The nurse told me Dr. Tolbert hates to have his picture taken, but he did this for me. This is a great and kind doctor that I am blessed to have for all these years. I hope to have many more!


Fantastic care provider!


Dr. Tolbert, is the best Dr. I have been to,, the smartest, if he sends you to a surgeon, he tells you exactly what he will do and how, he has been right every time so far, you know what to expect


Dr. Tolbert is an excellent Dr. he has taken care of my family and myself for 30 years. he is great and my whole family loves him.
