5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
He's absolutely an amazing person to talk too. He has excellent bedside manner which is extremely important and he genuinely cares about his patients.
5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty
He's seriously the best facial plastics in California, you will never be disappointed. Such a great guy. And travels with Operation Smile in China a couple months of the year.
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
So many plastic surgeons advertising, competing for patients and surgery in Sacramento area, it is hard to cut through the arrogance, the smarmy sweet talk, to find someone you can trust to give you an honest assessment you can really trust.I have met very few doctors who truly impress me but Dr. Tollefson is a rare combination of brilliance and humility. The fact that he is a really nice and interesting guy with sense of humor is frosting on the cake. His office staff are friendly and professional and do a remarkable job with insurance billing.
5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery
No choice regarding the procedure; my dilemma was finding a surgeon who could make me look as good as I need before. I would trust him with any facial plastic procedure! Not only is Dr. T, a gifted surgeon but a kind, caring, down to earth, really nice person who you can trust without reservation!
5 out of 5 stars Ear Surgery
I recommend Dr. T and the UCD team without hesitation. I am simply amazed at the level of care and follow up my son received before, during and after his surgery. It is above and beyond anything I expected. I am so glad we chose Dr. T for this procedure.
