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.
