Dr. Daniel W. Tolpin is a Board certified ophthalmologist currently practicing general ophthalmology. Dr. Tolpin graduated magna cum laude in Biology from Bowdoin College in 1966. He received his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine in 1970 where he was a member of the medical honor society AOA and was awarded the Pharmacology Prize.
