Physician Bio

Dr. Douglas Tolley is no doubt dear to the hearts of thousands of Yuba-Sutter families; he has delivered more than 5,000 babies to them since moving to the area in 1993.

Born and reared in Darby, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia, he graduated from Penn State University in 1968. He earned his medical degree at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, performed his internship and residency at David Grant Medical Center, Travis Air force Base, and was Board certified in Ob-Gyn in 1979.

In 1990, Dr. Tolley retired from the Air Force with the rank of Colonel, after more than 22 years of service in Germany, Utah and California. After practicing for several years in Sacramento, he moved to Yuba City and has been on the medical staff at Rideout Health since then, serving several terms as Chair of the Ob-Gyn Department, as Chief of Staff and on numerous hospital committees.

He is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and a member of the American Medical Association, the California Medical Association (where he is a delegate to the CMA’s House of Delegates), the Northern California Obstetrical and Gynecological Society and the Yuba Sutter Colusa Medical Society, where he has served as president for several terms.

He is married to the former Lois Gustafson, and both their sons, Gus and Derek, attended First Lutheran School, Barry School, and Yuba City High School.
