Dr. Tallman's clinical experience taught him to respect and appreciate the important information he received from his parents (usually his mother). He said: "When dealing with children, especially the very young children who cannot clearly express their problems, I must trust and rely on the mother to explain the problem, and the mother's intuition is almost always correct."

Dr. Talman’s pursuit of medicine was partly shaped by his father, who attended medical school and became a doctor after serving as a naval submarine. Father's perseverance completed his medical education and training, and at the same time helped raise five children, which left an indelible impression on the young Talman.

After graduating with honors from Clemson University in 2012, Tallman enrolled in the School of Osteopathic Medicine (part of Virginia Tech) at Edward University in Blacksburg, Virginia. The new medical student received a special gift from his father and started his studies. The father proudly passed his own doctor's "black bag" to his son, which is a recognized symbol in the medical world.

After earning his medical degree in 2017, Talman completed a three-year pediatric residency course at the Carilion Clinic of Virginia Tech School of Medicine in Roanoke, Virginia. In the process, he also obtained basic life support (BLS), pediatric advanced life support (PALS) and neonatal resuscitation program (NRP) certification. Talman also co-authored a pivotal peer-reviewed study related to infertility. He also gave oral reports on various pediatric issues, including childhood obesity and juvenile arthritis.

When not serving young patients, Dr. Talman likes to spend time with his family, including the pediatric occupational therapist wife Lindsay and two children: three-year-old Eliza and two-year-old Levi (Levi). He said: "I like to be a husband and father." This young active family likes all forms of outdoor activities, including camping and hiking together. Talman pointed out: "A few weeks ago, we had a relaxing hike on Pilot Mountain." Pediatricians are also active participants and/or spectators of various sports such as football, basketball, frisbee and football.
