Dr. Tanner ALWAYS listens to any concerns or comments I have. He does an excellent job in discussing options and including me in decisions about medications or changes in treatment. I never feel rushed and leave feeling encouraged because of the outstanding care Dr. Tanner provides. He is the BEST, and I do mean the BEST, doctor of any kind I've ever had!

I know the limitations doctors have re: time. *Dr. Tanner gives generously of his time but w/my complex issues, partially related to aging there is rarely enough time to cover anything in much depth.
