The goal of every patient encounter to iden­ti­fy the full extent of the clin­i­cal con­di­tion and offer effec­tive treat­ment options. I strive to teach my patients about their diag­no­sis so that can become engaged and active part­ners in their recov­ery process. It is tremen­dous­ly sat­is­fy­ing to work togeth­er with my patients to get them back on their feet.

"Finally after 5 years, a new doctor, Dr. Toolan, has diagnosed the problem of my foot & ankle, without having surgery! He was extremely thorough with my medical record & testing in the office, listened carefully to me, gave me a temporary orthotic, and I have had NO pain in my ankle & foot since the visit. I am on track for a new orthotic, physical therapy, & new shoes. He deserves the highest rating you have!"
