Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I truly believe in the altruistic doctor. Need do to what is right for the individual and treat each individual as if they were either my own parent, sister or brother. I enjoy spending time with my patients and their families to educate and make them feel comfortable with any decision we make together as a team. I believe that vascular care is best given by a vascular specialist who can perform both open surgery as well as the minimally invasive procedures. This allows for a unbiased opinion that ultimates provides the individual the best possible care.Read more

I saw Dr. Tanquilut for my varicose veins. He and his staff are exceptional. I highly recommend Dr. Tanquilut. If there are words to describe him they would be caring, incredible, and perfect.

The most compassionate doctor I have ever had. I am a ER nurse at Christ Hospital and my sister is an ICU nurse in Bloomington, Il. My mother was found to have a large abdominal aortic aneurysm and a cardiologist in Bloomington recommended that we see Dr. Tanquilut. I recommended that we see one of the vascular surgeons that I knew at Christ hospital. We met Dr. Tanquilut and ultimately had my mom's surgery done by him. He truly is gifted. I thank God for Dr. Tanquilut

i an an extremely nervous person. So when I was told I had to go see a vascular surgeon I became a wreck. However, my entire experience in his office from to having to have stents placed in my left leg and a bypass in the right was perfect. I now have my life back. I especially loved his PA Kim and his lab nurse Korina. Thank you both for taking care of me.

Dr. Tanquilut is perfect, the office is the issue and not sure if he or his colleague are aware of it. But if they don't get control of the office and its issues they are going to loose a lot of patients. I know this just from what I hear waiting in the office wait area.

He was extremely thorough. His staff are exceptional. I especially love Karen. The experience was definitely unlike any other doctors office.
in New Lenox, IL |
I was extremely nervous about going to a vascular surgeon, especially after being told by my cardiologist that I was going to lose my legs if I did not have the blockage my legs opened up. However, upon entering the room, Dr. Tanquilut made me feel at ease. The best part was when he said that I was fine and that what I was told was not true and that the only treatment I needed at this time was to walk.
