Dr. Bartlett is NO geriatrician. He was impatient and did not even know my mother's (his patient's) name, constantly calling her ma'am. He did not have her medical records which were supposed to have been requested 6 weeks earlier. He had no medical history and asked virtually NO QUESTIONS! My mother is diabetic and we asked that he look at her feet and he said he was not a podiatrist and we needed to make an appointment with one. We asked if there was a dietician on staff and he said yes and ordered an appointment with one. Turns out it is a diabetic class and the first available was not for over three weeks. She complained of an inability to sleep and he prescribed Trazadone, a daily anti-depressant with no drug counseling. Querying a pharmacist we discovered it can cause dizziness and a tendency to fall (for an 80 year old?? C'mon!). There are no studies to indicate it's effectiveness on insomnia, as all particpants in the study were depressed! Do not go to Dr. Bartlett.

cranky, doesn't like to have ?'s asked and will stonewall you if you do ask, short mannered, will tell you he's spending too much time on you, will only see you for ONE thing at a time and refuses to listen to the whole body concept, dispenses anti-b's w/o any exam and barely looks at past records or current scans. Curt, real air of "I don't care, you're wasting my time" and no compassion or care displayed - waited 2 hours to see Doctor! And I wasn't late, only saw 2 other patients who came in after me and were seen before me. I wish I could get away from ALL Talbert Docs as they are run by their own corporate dictates and in no wise are they going up against that to help patients. CanNOT recommend if you are searching for a full time compassionate doctor who really wants to help patients fix up the entire body. Whole Talbert practice VERY BAD at sending letters or getting referrals done, docs will lie and say fam emergency when on long vacations. AVOID. There is no help here for pain
