Patient Comments (4)
in Scottsdale, AZ |
Saw him in July 2015 for essential tremors. He did a cursory physical exam and nothing else. He acted like none of my other doctors knew what they were doing and suggested it was diabetic neuropathy (which my endo said it wasn't) or a medication side effect (which my psychiatrist and GP both said was very unlikely). Prescribed me something contraindicated by almost every other medication I take as well as my life-long condition (type I diabetes). VERY dismissive. Definitely would not recommend.

Dr Tamm is self focused, very poor Doctor patient interface. Would not recommend him. He discounts all other doctors experience. Very condescending . Does not listen. I visited him since I moved into area. Will not return.

It took my mother to see Dr. Tamm today and I like the fact that his face wasn't buried in some laptop trying to complete his H&P's on an EMR system or googling my mother's symptoms online! Yes he seems a bit impatient, but the guy knows what he's talking about. Most providers these days whether they are doctors, PA's, or NP's are clueless and leave you wondering what's wrong with you. Dr. Tamm is knowledgeable in his field, gets to the point, and doesn't waste your time!

He was incredibly rude and dismissive. Ran two tests which came back negative and told me I'm SOL and to go see someone else. Told me he wanted to try a certain medication, but when I tried to follow up on that he dismissed me as a patient.
