Please get second opinion

After four surgeries I was told he was the best. With this I had my surgery scheduled and preformed. The very next day I knew something wasn't right. As I healed I confirmed my suspicion. This guy caused me a lifetime of pain. After the healing was complete and during one of my visits I questioned why and what could have been done wrong, I was immediately told by the good Dr that there was nothing more he could do for me and for me to go elsewhere.

Does not exude confidence

I initally went to Dr. Toolan to fix an old broken ankle that never healed. He said it would be a 5 hour surgery under general anestitic and be the hospital 2-3 days with 2 months of elevated above my heart. I never felt comfortable with the diagnosis and went somewhere else, had the ankle fusion, bone graph, 2 screws, home the same day as surgery, weight bearing after 4 weeks and only elevated when necessary. Glad I went elsewhere. Nice guy, probably excellent doctor but don't have time teaching hospital and students to work on you.

A true expert

Dr. Toolan is a true expert of foot and ankle problems. Several members of my family have seen him and he has helped us out every time. He can figure out your problem when others can't. I think he should be the first doctor you see for your foot and ankle problems

Shouldn't have gone anywhere else

I was treated and operated on by a few podiatrists in Indiana and didn't think I could ever get better. I just got worse. Dr Toolan took the time to listen and examine me. I felt better with the inserts he gave me and the physical therapy worked. When he did my surgery, things went alot smoother than before. Less pain and swelling smoother recovery and he told me everything he was doing... very different from the quacks in IN. I'm not perfect, but I'm happy. I shouldn't have goneanywhere else. Dr. Toolan is amazing !!!!!!

Go somewhere else

I was one of Dr Toolan's victims,I had reconstructive surgery and have had nothing but problems since my surgery by him.the only thing he will do to help you with one of his failed surgeries is give you pain killers and tell you there is nothing he can do for you.
