About Me

Care Philosophy

I am a neurologist with a focus in headache, MS and sleep disorders. I also have a special interest in weight loss and insulin resistance. In managing chronic headache in particular I find that many patients have given up hope of getting relief. I find that we can always find ways to help people with headaches.

What People Say About Dr. Bradford Talcott, MD

I’ve had headaches for decades and finally decided to seek help. Upon making an appointment I found out that Dr. Talcott doesn’t even take the time to see headache patients any more. His assistant came in and informed me that they believe all headaches are migraines and it’s genetic and incurable. They didn’t give me any hope! And all the information for relief that they gave me I had already found on the Internet. It was a complete waste of my time and money.

Dr. Talcott is amazing. I have suffered from migraines for year's but with his help I have only had a few short migraines in the last few years. He was very personable, knowledgeable and thorough. I would definitely recommend him.

He is a little rough around the edges sometimes but he really does care. We called him from the road on the day I was having a monster migraine. We asked to get in right away. However, Dr. Talcott had already left and was off for the day. The office called him and asked what they should do for me. His response was I am coming back get her ready. I showed up to his office with him waiting by the door for me. He took be back straight away and did the procedure and waited with me on his day off.
