08/07/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. James Dolan is one of the very best: intelligent, dedicated, astute, kind, well-informed, and highly skilled. His staff is excellent: each one is conscientious, caring, intelligent, attentive to detail and to each patient. They show the confidence of people who are well trained and informed, who have the benefit of wise, fair leadership. I have been cared for by Dr. Dolan and his group during surgeries, therapy, and followup for two different kinds of cancers, and have consistently been made secure in the environment of the highest levels of integrity, skill, knowledge, and good will provided there. Dr. Dolan is the kind of doctor we all hope to find.

08/03/09 5 4 5 5 James Dolan is a partner with me and so many women living with gyny cancers. I am here 10.4 years later because of his correct diagnosis of Stage 1-A ovarian cancer, no recurrence to date. I have suggested several women consider seeing him, and who are as pleased as I have been with his care an concern. Patients come from many miles away to see him. I scored "Punctuality" a bit lower only because he is so busy, and there is often a wait time; but his kindness, and that of his staff, make up for any delay.

28/03/08 5 4 5 5 Dr. Dolan is the most conscientious doctor I know. He sets very high standards for himself and his staff and we, his patients, are the beneficiaries. I am very confident of his ability to diagnose and properly treat various illnesses. Dr. Dolan and his staff are very welcoming and have always made me feel relaxed.
