Some of the worst care I have ever received. I was referred to see a rheumatologist due to a list of severe symptoms that have left me in distress for the past 6 months. The intake appointment took over a month to schedule, and the actual intake appointment lasted ONLY 7 MINUTES. I have never felt less cared for by a professional doctor ever in my life. Symptoms have only worsened and the follow-up appointment lasted a mere 5 minutes. Go elsewhere! AVOID!

I was Dr Tarter's 1st morning appt. She was 45 minutes late. They told me after asking that she was reviewing my file when she came in she knew little about me. She could have had the decency to say she was stuck in traffic or her kid was sick whatever. I received my medical records months later to find out she was to send a message to me stating i had abnormal blood test results, which she never reported to me. I was not allowed to change doctors even though she had lied to me.
