In memory of Valerie Tinley

 ( 1943 to 2021 )
We are saddened by the loss of one of our own at DocTalker Family Medicine.

Valerie Tinley FNP-BC, was the first nurse practitioner in history to join the DFM family in 2005. She worked enthusiastically with us until 2014 when she retired. She brought a steady positive attitude to everything she did and maintained a British decorum that she never lost after moving to the US as a young adult. Valerie was not only Dr. Dappen’s neighbor and friend but worked tirelessly as a partner steering the DocTalker ship seamlessly whenever Dr Dappen was indisposed.  

We regret that she did not get to enjoy a longer retirement with her husband, 3 children, and 5 grandchildren.

To view her obituary

Here is Valerie on TV for DocTalker Family Medicine; we are grateful for all the years we worked alongside her.
