Dr. George L Talbot Jr has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Talbot does not listen to his patients. Dr. Talbot tells you he will work with other specialties to help you with your condition and has never followed through. After years on the same treatment regime for my condition with Dr. Talbot, Dr. Talbot suddenly calls and says he can't support my treatment plan and I need to find another doctor! He abandons you without coming up with alternate solutions. I've been Dr. Talbots patient for over 13 years.
Doesn't listen. Never makes note of the patient's expressed feelings/concerns. He's strictly devoted to time with patients, ability to refer for more co-pay, and never a fix. He seems to be most interested in keeping patients coming back. He boasts of having 2300 patients assigned to him. 2299, now.
My visits with Dr Talbot are always like visits with family - the good ones. He remembers me, shares stories of himself, and takes good care of me. He suggests without nagging. He is personable and very likeable. He stays in touch between visits with phone calls and email. He is sincere and I feel he truly cares about my well being. He makes me feel that I am more than a patient, but a friend. I like that and am glad he is my physician. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a good family doctor.
