Review for Dr. Tarbet

I do not know how he is still practicing - he did no testing minimal exam and basically said there was nothing wrong- but there was and that meant starting the process all over again and being in a lot of pain - terrible doc do not waste your time or money

Review for Dr. Mumm

Really cares about his patients. Isn’t one of those holier than thou surgeons. Makes home follow up calls. Will work people in on his off days and make sure everyone is seen where they need to be. Will tell you the truth straight up even if it means less money for him and a referral elsewhere.

Dr. Mumm is a very caring and personable doctor. I was transferred to him after my rheumatologist left the state. He listens and asks questions and finds the best solution to the problem. I would definitely recommend him.

Review for Dr. Mumm

my father had him for a doc when admitted to icu at Sanford and while all other care was phenomenal, we are having him transferred to avera simply because of him. Rude and arrogant and dismissive to someone who has dealt with nephrology for 15 years.
