Dr Tolkin is nice and knowledgeable / he answers all our questions and never rushes us. His secretaries are the problem. im not sure what their names are, but youd think for a pediatricians office, they would be atleast a little bit more approachable and kind. ever since we started going to this clinic, they have been nothing but short and unfriendly. they never acknowledge our presence whilst we're waiting to check in . just continue staring at their computer screen, they never return phone calls, and are just not friendly when taking my childs weight . my son was asleep, so when i checked in .. (after 5 mins of being ignored) she told me to undress him . i said he was asleep so if i could just wait until the doctor is ready; but she said he will be with us in five minutes. so i wake up my child from his nap, and undress him. the doctor came into the room after exactly 1 hour!!! i totally understand that doctors run behind - i work for one . but i had asked if i could wait until he was ready for us so my child could finish his nap and she said he'll be with me in five mins. i should really look for a new doctor. its not Dr Tolkins fault, but just a smile and a friendly hi would be nice from his staff.

Dr. Tolken is great. His receptionist, the oriental one, is terrible (I say that because I don't know her name). She is extremely unprofessional. Never calls you back, when you talk to her, she is mumbling, turning pages, interrupting you. When you do leave a message, she never follows up. I had her leave me a message all mumbling, forgetting what she was calling about etc., and then hung up. It is the only medical practise I know that tells you they need forty eight hours to return your call. And then, they are just leaving a message, and you go back and forth for several calls...

ok...so I am not able to say how good Dr. Tolkin is. Let me put it this way: he is the most caring and knowledgable Dr. I have ever seen.

Dr Tolkin is an experienced doctor, I have nothing bad to say about him. What he needs to improve are his receptionist staff. They never pick up the phone and are very rude to patients. Wait times are very long as they often overbook and families are left with long and unpredictable wait times.

Love, love, love Dr. Tolkin. He first saw my son at 2 days old in NY General - we still see him and my son is almost 12. His calm, quirky, friendly way, really helps both the parent and the child. I sure hope he does not retire soon.

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr Tolkin. Extremely knowledgable, kind, goes above and beyond. Incredible that he was my sons Dr and now he will be my grandsons. I cannot thank this man enough for all he has done.

Dr. Tolkin was the pediatrician onsite at the hospital when my twins were born. He has been their doctor from the day they joined the world and it is with much reluctance that as my twins have reached 16 years of age, they no longer need a pediatrician and we must start to find a family doctor. Dr. Tolkin not only has the technical knowledge but his calm, gentle, caring, reassuring bedside manners are what makes him a great doctor. We would stay with him forever if we could!!
