Ratings for Dr. Rebecca A. Talley
Dr. Talley is a fantastic doctor. I have been with her since the beginning of her practice. At one time i had an extended stay in the hospital and was under the care of a specialist. Even though she was not the doctor of record, she came to check on me every other day. When I was released from the hospital, Dr. Talley asked me to see her. Since I had had major surgery, she told me if I could not get to her, she would come to my home to check on me. How many doctors would offer to do that. Dr. Talley is the greatest.
I have been one of Dr. Talley's patients for seven years. I scheduled an appointment for a yearly physical and when I got to the office, I was told there were six patients ahead of me and there would be about a two hour wait. As this was my day off work, I decided to reschedule my appointment and asked for Dr. Talley to give me a call. When she called me, she was incredibly rude. I told her that I wanted to sit down and talk to her about getting my tubes tied and would like to come in when there was not another appointment scheduled in the same time slot. She told me that it should not take more than 15 minutes to talk about the procedure and if I did not like the way she did business, I could find another doctor. Then, five days later I received a certified letter kicking me out of the practice. I have referred several people to her, which I now regret. She has lost focus and has obviously forgotten that a practice is about patient care, not patient quantity.
This is a poor excuse for a person or doctor. she yelled at me when she had never met me before and banned me from all the facilities after I waited two hours for medical treatment. She refused to see me because her staff said I was "rude". I was not rude. If we were all allowed to "ban" people from our jobs because of rudeness, our pockets would be empty. Talley called me a liar when I said a nurse told me to come in earlier than my scheduled appointment. She needs to sit on Dr. Dirksen's coach and discuss plans for a part as God in the local theater. If she is not happy being in the theater and being laughed at, maybe she should practice her hostility overseas.
I don't usually write complaints, but this called for one: I was extremely sick and had to speak with the on call doctor - UNFORTUNATELY she was the doctor I had to speak with...She was VERY rude and unhelpful...unsympathetic to a patient in need. I ended up having severe Bronchitis as well as a few other things wrong and she seemed to care less, as though I was putting her out to have to take a phone call from a patient that was not well - it wasn't even late at night, in fact it was a short time after the office had closed - she acted like I woke her up in the middle of the night because I had a minor cough or something... Terrible bedside manor - Pray you NEVER have to encounter this "Doctor"!!
