"Dr. Tolpinrud was very thorough and professional. - As soon as Dr. Tolpinrud walked in the door of my room, she put me at ease. She took her time, thoroughly investigating and examining every square inch of my body. She politely asked permission when she peeked at my more "private" areas. I was impressed with her casual, yet professional demeanor."
