I Would Refer Her To Anyone Who Has Severe Or Even Slight Allergies...., Apr 23, 2013
Dr. Evelyn Tolson is a wonderful doctor. I was referred to Dr. Evelyn Tolson by my good friend and I was very suspicious about taking my son to another doctor to receive another opinion. My son had a deep year round cough and he had the cough for so long I just did not know where else to visit. We found out that my son had allergic reactions to different things and commenced the allergy shots along with a combination of asthma treatment. I have seen such a change in my son that it is incredible. We are still performing allergy shots, but everything is recovering. Dr. Evelyn is the most satisfying doctor I have ever seen. I would refer her to anyone who has severe or even slight allergies.
Drove an hour, waited & waited, paid $14 parking, never seen..., Apr 17, 2013
Called for appointment, told 10:45 a.m. avail, I explained we had a 2 p.m. appointment same day over an hour away from her office. Let them decide if I should take the 10:45 a.m. appointment. They reassured me it would be fine. Waited 1 hr, 15 mins then asked how much longer. Told 3 patients in exam rooms had not been seen & no more exam rooms available (i.e. it would be quite awhile). Asked why so backed up and was told she was over booked (no emergencies causing back log). Drove 1 hour, paid $14 parking, had to leave for 2 p.m. appointment without being seen.
Great Doctor! Must see her for Obstetric and Gyn Care..., Apr 11, 2013
She is compassionate and competent. I recommend her to all of my friends. She takes time to answer my questions. Her staff is caring and helpful. I love her PA and nurse practitioner. I am so lucky to have found her.
Unfortunately, I can't recommend her. Lacks privacy sensitivity!..., Feb 6, 2013
I saw this doctor once. Her office is very small which would be fine, except while I was there in the waiting room, I could hear everything she was saying during her phone conversation with the insurance company or someone like that. This included the patient's i.d. number, medical problems, lab report results, etc. I couldn't believe it! Doesn't this violate HIPPA laws?? She was using a phone in the front reception area but could prevent this by having a phone in back part of office. Toward the end of our appt., I told her I was concerned about her making calls from phone in front, and I could hear everything she was discussing about a patient. Instead of taking responsibility for the situation, she blamed it on her office, other patients, and then me. She said that that unfortunately she has a small office; that sometimes the reception door gets left open when patients walk in; and that most patients aren't listening for something like that. LOL, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!! She may be a good doctor regarding a broken bones and such (I don't know), but she is clueless about protecting patient privacy! No thanks!
If you're looking to manage pain, find another doctor!!..., Dec 3, 2012
My wife has Crohn's disease, and finding a Dr. to manage pain in Fairbanks has so far proven impossible. We went to see him, and he didn't feel her input was necessary. All he wanted to do was get her off pain medications. Which would be fine IF there was any way to get rid of the chronic horrific pain that Crohn's causes. He said he had no way of knowing if she was really in pain or not. (Guess they didn't cover Crohn's Disease in his medical school) He was rude and just tried to hide his unwillingness to help behind medical terminology. I would not recommend this Dr. to anyone, not even as an anaesthesiologist for surgery. (After all, he has no way of knowing if you're in pain). If you have Crohn's disease, DO NOT move to Fairbanks! We are now in the process of moving from our home in search of actual medical care...
