GREAT Doctor!
Modesto, CA |
Dr. Tanner is a fabulous physician. He takes his time and is thorough in his approach. However in contrast his front office receptionist needs some training in people skills. It's bad enough that I have considered going to another practice. The other support staff are hit or miss. If he could improve this area he'd be the best in town.

Dr Tanner is an excellent doctor. He's very thorough and takes the time to address every issue you bring to his attention. I highly recommend him and his abilities as a doctor. His staff on the other hand are extremely rude, inconsiderate and incapable of being curteous. I highly recommend he replace his office staff. I quit seeing him as my doctor because I was treated so poorly by his office staff.

Dr. Tanner is a competent, thorough, effective physician who answers question that you have and offers suggestions to help a person in their health maintenance. His staff, on the other hand, are quite the opposite. The front office personnel are rude and dismissive; they act like you are a burden to them; in the 3+ visits I have had in the last couple of months, not one of them has greeted or smiled at me when I came through the door. I feel uncomfortable sitting in the waiting room!
