Dr. Tannous was very good! His listening skills are far and above the majority of MD's. I was quite a puzzle with the symptoms I presented with and Dr. Tannous just kept "fishing" until we figured things out. His RN, Cathy, is also amazing...FYI. Would highly recommend Dr. Tannous to anyone looking for a MD who does not "blow" off your symptoms.

Was referred to Dr. T. by my primary for colonoscopy and endoscopy. Colonoscopy was routine 10 year checkup. One pollop found and tested negative. Endoscopy was to check for damage from taking meds for many years to treat acid reflux. Taking new med as a result.
