Patient Comments (4)

Interpersonal skills are lacking. I was referred to him by my family doctor because I have had a puffy eyelid for years. He asked me if he could introduce me to one of his terminally ill patience so I might get perspective on my situation. Not what I was expecting.

He is always plesant, an fun to see. He was wonderful with me personally. He has completely corrected my vision. This is the first time in my life I do not have to wear glasses. Thank you so much Dr. Tanner. His staff is wonderful also.

Dr. Tanner preformed surgery on both my eyes. I was anxious but he was excellent in explaining every step, outcomes and what to expect from the surgery. He answered my questions and took time with answering all my questions.
