Dr. Tomlinson received his medical degree from the University of Iowa and did his residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin.  During his medical residency, some of Tomlinson’s medical rotations were with physicians from The Iowa Clinic. Tomlinson says, “I knew there was a sense of community within The Iowa Clinic. The providers were always looking out for their patients. They were in constant communications with each other and their patients, working together to provide the best possible care. I knew that was the kind of doctor I wanted to be.”
