Tomlins, Ryan James
Dr. Tomlin was very knowledgeable, professional and a great staff. He explained procedure to me where I understood it. During surgery he played music from his phone radio. Dr. Tomlin gets an A+. Thanks doctor.

Dr. Tomlins and his staff treated me like I was their only patient. He took x-rays then used a sonogram to find what was wrong. There are usually several appointments and a great deal of waiting but not so with him. The procedure went well and they told me what to expect. I was awake and allowed to watch his work. One of the nurses even called me the next day to check on my status. I felt well cared for and respected their level of concern and professionalism. Such a breath of fresh air in the health care industry.

While there is sometimes a wait when they are really busy, I've usually been seen quickly. I've been treated courteously and with compassion when sick. I recommend ExpressCare for after hour care that doesn't require an emergency room visit.

Cotton O'Neil ExpressCare
My family just recently moved here. I had lived in Topeka before a long time ago & Cotton O'Neil was the best. Well its not anymore. I had been sick for a week. Since I'm still trying to find a doctor (Cotton O'Neil is not making that an easy process) I went to the urgent care. I get back into the exam room, not once did the nurse ask if I had any medical conditions they should be aware of, just asked for drug allergies. I tried to tell her about my medical conditions I have but she didnt want any of it. Then Cynthia Peterson APRN walks in & immediately said it was allergies before even examing me. Then she wanted to prescribe me Amoxicillin even though I'm ALLERGIC to it. I tried to tell her my medical conditions but she didnt want to hear them either & told me I knew too much about my medical conditions. Well since I wouldnt take medicine I'm allergic to, she decided not to treat me. She told me to keep doing what I've been doing & walked out the door. So here I am getting worse.

Rude NurseTabitha the nurse was helping me.The nurse practicioner or Doctor left and said she be back as I understood, but didn't come back and I had changed my mind about a CATscan they wanted to schedule so I went to tell them at the counter, Tabitha shooed me back to the room like I was a child and just really was not interested in listening to the patient. Then when she does come back to the room, she tells me if I want to cancel the appt. I need to do it myself. So I am really interested in what are we paying them for? I seriously doubt Tabitha will be working with me again as I will refuse her.

Everyone working there are great. Took my daughter in for what i thought was a broken arm. They helped me fill out paperwork and got us in real quick. Great place.

The RN, Tina, I believe that was her name (she never introduced herself but saw her name on the computer) assigned to my care was so extremely cold and rude. I would have been better served by a cold fish. I was feeling panic about wearing a mask because I couldn't breathe. She could have approached me differently or offered me an exam room to wait in but instead humiliated me in front of everyone in the waiting room. But she offered me nothing and my wait time was over an hour. As a result of her behavior, I will never return to this clinic.

Very knowledgable and caring staff this is my first choice for immediate care. Of course if 20 people are ahead of you then there will be an increased wait time after all more doctors don't magically appear just bc its a busy day

Immediate Care at Tallgrass
I was with Tallgrass for about a year before I switched. In that time, both of my PACs left. My new doctor then had me come back in on the chronic issue we were working on because she couldn't read their (computerized) notes. Referrals can take weeks, and though I started working on my disabled placard two weeks before it expired, it took about six weeks, an extra trip, and a lot of phone calls to make it happen. Everyone was nice, it was just a mess. I always felt like the reason it took literally two weeks to get an appointment was because they were trying to force you to the urgent care side to be able to bill your insurance more and collect a bigger copayment. I am much happier with a smaller practice with timely follow up.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
