Obviously the toilet must be higher than the septic tank. The drain must have a 1" per 4' slope minimum. No way to tell if that is the case, but shouldn't be too hard to calculate at least roughly. It is possible the pro didn't get the job done right when he cleaned the drain, might be worth you while to have him back and evaluate the problem. While one would like to think that when the toilet was originally installed it would meet code. Drainlines always have had to slope away from that being drained. But, you never know for sure.
