  • 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.

Changing doctors

I do not like the office, it is dirty, and there is no seperating sick patients from non sick patients in the waiting room. The wait time is astronomical! Always at least a hour and a half wait. Today we had the very first appt at 9:00 am we weren't called back until 9:45, it is now 10:30 am and we still haven't seen the doctor. I don't understand if he comes in late to work everyday or what but it's very unprofessional! When you have the very first appt of the day you think you won't have to wait long! When he does come in he's very fast and doesn't say much. Needless to say we will be switching doctors!

I was very pleased with the overall experience with the Dr and staff at the office. He was very attentive and did not appear to be rushed and really listened to me to provide an accurate treatment. His staff was friendly and very helpful in making sure I understood all office procedures. I will be continuing all my care with Dr. Tarkenton and recommending him to friends and family as well.

dr. Tarkenton

Dr.Tarkenton is a very good dr. The only thing why his rating is so bad is because of the staff that he has. They are rude,slow when it comes to get any papers from them they lie to you and dont send you anything!!!!also mary needs to learn how to work in a Dr. Office and learn some maners when talking to parents. Its sad when you work for a doctor and you dont know anything and the only thing you said is "I will call you later" and never does
