Trying to contact her or her secretary is worse than calling the IRS. It took me several days to get an operator to assist me.

Good experience!!
Check-in was easy as long as your paperwork was filled out ahead of time. Which is what the instructions say to do. People were nice and the facility was nice as well. Dr. Tarmin was great and would recommend Woodholme to others.

Dr. Tarmin was very attentive and she took time to explain everything. She advised non-surgical options before going ahead with procedures. She made a 97 yr. old very comfortable. Should I need surgery, I would feel safe with her caring for me.

I had to switch gastro docs recently as mine retired. It was my first visit with Dr. Tarmin, who had been highly recommended. When I first called as a new patient, the process was quick, friendly and complete. I had an appointment in a short time and when I had to change it , they were very accommodating. I received a few texts leading up to the appt with reminders which I appreciate. The office staff upon arrival were friendly and my appointment ran on time. Dr. Tarmin was especially thoughtful and spent time with me. She went out of her way to help out with a concern and truly put me at ease with her friendly disposition. She also had a new med student with her, and I was impressed with her patience and respect for him - although it was apparent he was pretty new. Checkout process and appointment for my routine colonoscopy went well and the person going over things was very nice as well.

I just had a virtual visit with Dr. Tarmin. I have been her patient for over 15 years after Dr. Wolf became semi-retired. I just love Dr. Tarmin. She always shows concern for me as a person and my medical health in general! She is compassionate and informative! I enjoy talking with her because she treats me as a person first. I would highly recommend her to others looking for a gastroenterologist and give her 5 stars. I am grateful to have her as my doctor.
