Dr. Tanton was very thorough in his explanation of my condition. My rating is based on his staff service. Next to impossible to get an appointment. No one seems to know what to do next. Also, a lot of misspelled information on the patient information. I strongly feel that his office staff needs to be retrained. And Melissa, his personal scheduler, good luck if she ever answer your call. Always the call you in 24 hours game.

Dr. Tanton has always been extremely kind and welcoming. He's worked with me through some complex medical issues and has sought to find answers, rather than pushing symptoms aside as other providers have done. He's been honest with me - saying that he doesn't know if he can figure something out or treat it, but he always does his best to try. That means a lot to have an honest doctor, who is willing to try as many do not. He's rather in-demand, so it does take time to get in.

He told me he thinks I have Hashimoto disease. Gave me samples of Synthroid wanted me to start taking it and go for blood work. Blew off all my concerns. Found out later medication was three times the recommended dose for a person my age and weight, most likely I would of ended up in the hospital. Had blood work done. No one called me with results. When I returned to the office told all my labs were normal. Thank goodness I did not take the med. He would of really messed up my thyroid.

Dr. Tanton is the best Endocrinologist I have had hands down! I don't understand the reviews complaining about him focusing on blood work. What else can a doctor go by if not quarterly bloodwork?! He's doing his job, and he's extremely good at it. When I started seeing Dr. Tanton, my A1C was 9.0 less than a year later I have lost 17 lbs, and my A1C is 6.5. He's a great doctor, and I recommend him to anyone looking to get their diabetes under control. He's the best you'll find!

Dr Tanton is the kind of doctor that will spend as much time as you need - and in fact there are few times where we have been in his office talking to HIM as much as 45-50 minutes. He is absolutely the reason I am doing so well with my Type 1. He is "the bomb" and takes care of all 4 of us (wife and two kids) as well.

I saw Dr. Tanton twice after dealing with a Pituitary tumor. He listens to my concerns, answers my questions and has my best interest at heart.

I've been chronically ill for six years and have seen hundreds of doctors. In one visit with Dr. Tanton, he was able to accurately identify an issue that all of the other providers have missed...including one of Orlando's top Endocrinologists. Though time will tell how his treatment impacts me (I am just starting medication), his compassion and desire to address the situation were unmatched. I also REALLY appreciate his methodical, measured approach. Excellent, excellent physician.
