Very rude. She does not seem to care much about her patients... she was actually insulting. I will not return to her and possibly not to Iowa Clinic because of my interactions.

Unfortunately, dr Tallman is not my regular doctor. I saw her when hospitalized at UnityPoint West in 2015. Dr Tallman was very respectful and extremely nice with a great bedside manner while I wasn’t myself (severe dehydration among other problems including exasperation of my chronic pain conditions). I had also been falling so I had “sitters” in my hospital room. Several were rude Mercy nurse students. I appreciated Dr Tallman even more because of the students behavior.

Terrible doctor! It is so unfortunate when people go into this profession for money and not for the care of patients.

The worst Doctor I've ever had. She should NOT be practicing in the medical field. She has no compassion for her patients. After telling a friend about my experience, a stranger within earshot came to tell me how sorry he was as he had the same experience dealing with Dr. Tallman and his sick father. Sadly in his case, his father passed away. Please seek professional medical help elsewhere. Please.

"Dr. T" is thorough in her knowledge of tests/procedures needing to be done when. I trust her. She also has a great sense of humor (Important to me.) She's young & energetic, but her nurse can be very rude at times, so heads up!??

Lacks empathy, compassion, respect. Hurries, interrupts. Does not offer referral to alternative doctor for conditions she does not choose to treat, or that she says require a specialist.

Just a note to Dr. Tallman: "Thank you so much for the wonderful care of me. Your professionalism - save my life." Good doctors understand responsibility better than privilege. Thanks for being one such doctor. Tatyana Shoykhet

Sincere interest in my personal health, follow through to implement needed tests and then review all results plus respond to my questions. This provided confidence in doing the right things for my specific situation.

Seniors may want to trust another doctor...not a warm person who values input from patients.

I have seen Dr. Tallman several times in the past year and I find her extremely intelligent and personable. She listens to my complaints and speaks honestly with me about treatment. She spends just enough time with me - not too much, but I don't feel she is rushed. And she does remember me from past appointments (whether she is just reviewing my chart before she comes in, or really remembers, I don't care). I feel valued and important.

My time is just as valuable as anyone else's including doctors. I will never be seen at this clinic again and would dearly love to speak to a patient advocate.

Dr. Tallman is very personable. She takes time to listen to you (the patient ). She then asks questions to make sure she's understood what you've said to her. She discusses how she wants to approach your symptoms by tests to get a correct diagnosis. And asks permission before proceeding. She makes you feel comfortable like your involved with what is going on with your body. She's truthful responds when you leave messages. She is a great person, lady, and doctor. I'd recommend her to anyone.
