Dr. Tanson was my PCP for 7yrs give or take. As a kid on welfare it was difficult for my single mom to find a doctor to even take medical and many would provide subpar care. Dr. Tanson was thoroughly attentive to my visits he was warm attentive and listened to my mom and my self he probed questions assessed and always provided care meeting my medical needs. I this was 10+yrs ago and I am thinking he’s burned out from what medical patients can do to a doctor- the office was flooded we had to wait usually 2hrs but no one took medical so no complaints he was a busy man. Poverty brings in a host of patients who have addictions and severe conditions from lack of self-care & this is all a breeding place for a doctor to fail...They are only humans burn out & I know he’s capable of being a great doctor I also know he’s in a senior age now, SanJ. County is notoriously poor/dangerous his pop is not the typical doctors. He’s likely needing to retire.

Sherry Cherry in Woodbridge, CA – Jan 26, 2019
My granddaughter has been trying to find out about her blood problem for several weeks now. Tests are inconclusive, but there has not been a bone marrow test or other tests needed. ‘‘Tis is very troubling. She has nosebleeds now bruising, hair falling out, very low energy Please refer her to a specialist I am very disappointed in the care she is getting. She is 25 years old and has a child. Do something please. You know who she is She is entitled to medical care!!! Now and phones don’t work

I had 2 visits with him. Both times he seems not to care and walks out before I can ask more questions. Rudely said that he doesn't prescribe controlled medications for panic attacks even though his list of treated conditions include anxiety and panics. What he prescribed me first time made me feel worse but he didn't even care to ask. I waited for a month both times to get an appointment and he ran out of office within fee minutes. I was left confused and totally frasturated
