Additional Information:

Dr. Tolman started his medical career in research and soon learned that he was more drawn to working directly with people. After volunteering in a hospital emergency room, he gained an even greater appreciation for the importance of how a doctor interacts with patients. He went into his residency knowing that outpatient oncology was what he was meant to do.

Dr. Tolman believes that outpatient oncology in community cancer centers is the wave of the future. He's also a strong advocate for participation and access to clinical trials that help move the treatment of cancer forward. The real challenge, he believes, comes from how he partners with his patients and applies these new treatments.

Seattle was a natural fit for Dr. Tolman's love of the outdoors. He enjoys hiking, backcountry camping, fishing, skiing and running.

"Cancer is life-changing. Yet this is also an exciting time for oncology because of the new research and developments. A big part of my job is gaining an understanding of how each patient responds and learns, then educating my patients and families about all of the options so that they are actively involved in their care decisions."
