Dr. Joseph Peter Talcott, DO
I was referred to Doctor Talcott by my sister in law after she went to him with all 3 of her pregnancies, and now I have went to doctor Talcott for both of my children. Doctor Talcott is an outstanding doctor, he is very personable, knowledgeable, and makes you feel very comfortable. He jokes around all time, which was something I really liked, but he knew when it was time to be serious. My second pregnancy was high risk, I spent 4-8 hours a week doing NSTs and weekly ultrasounds for the last 13 weeks. Spending that much time in the office I formed friendships with some of the office staff. His daughter Bre does the NSTs, she is so sweet. Lisa, the ultrasound tech and I would laugh and laugh together, I could sit and talk to her for hours. Doctor Telcott was very professional when handling my pregnancy, answering every last question I had, and explaining everything thoroughly. He is very straight forward so there are no surprises. There were many times I cried in his office and everyone was there to help support and make me feel better. They did a wonderful job taking care of myself and my unborn baby, she is now a year old and healthy as can be. I would recommend Doctor Talcott to anyone with a sense of humor, like I said he is not your normal doctor, he is by far above the rest. I sometimes wish he was a family doctor as Im not having any more children, and we miss going to his office. My 5 year old asks to stop in and visit from time to time as he became 'Doc T's' sidekick after spending that much time in his office (it was his job to feed the fish) I cant say enough good things about this Doctor, he is just fantastic!

I LOVE Dr. Talcott! He delivered 2 of my 3 children and I almost wish I was having a 4th just so I could see him all the time :) He is great, and really passionate about what he does. I am so grateful to have found such an amazing OB/GYN and that he pursued this type of career. I can't say enough good things about him, he is really great!

Very caring doctor that takes time to listen, then he takes the time to explain what he believes is wrong. Great with the kids, too.
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
