Extremely jaded, rude, and disrespectful doctor and person. I was having symptoms with a condition for a couple of weeks so I went into the urgent care clinic because I could not get an appointment with my regular doctor. I told Dr. Tarr my symptoms and he told me that I did not have symptoms and filled out my screening accordingly. After he reticently performed the procedure he informed my insurance that it was done without symptoms and they billed me in full. Again, extremely rude arrogant man

Met him at urgent care with increasing back and stomach pain. Did a blood test and gave tentative diagnosis, but referred to hospital ER better equipped for in depth testing. Resulted in 90 mi. ambulance ride to U of IA Hospitals and two surgeries over the next two days. Dr. Tarr had totally nailed the disorder. One of the required procedures could not have been done locally.

This is a grade A Dr., it is hard to find respect and caring in walk in clinics but Dr. Tarr is fantastic. I've been seen by him a few times. He is smart and thorough. I was in pain and he found me a pharmacy closer so I would not have to drive far. His office receptionist was rude but he provided me all information to report her to the director. Watch out for the receptionist Maureen however she's rude.

I went into the urgent care center with pain and fears about my condition. He was very straightforward and thorough in his analysis and diagnosis, listening to my concerns and symptoms. I really appreciated that he talked to me without the confusing doctor jargon and made it easy to understand what was going on and how to best recover.

Very caring, listens to his patients, and takes time with his patients.
