Dr. Tanner's Care Philosophy

I believe in a holistic approach that includes a healthy lifestyle, even though my focus and practice is on addictive and behavioral health care. I believe that I must listen to my patient and understand what they want that I have to offer. Many times patients want so-called treatments or medications that do more harm than good. In those situations I attempt to help them understand their disorder and how to lead a more fulfilling life, but I will not prescribe medications or use treatments that are counterproductive to their recovery. Recovery is not an easy process in most cases. As an educator of physicians, I also believe that patients benefit from being educated about the brain disorder that afflicts them so that they are better motivated to achieve their true goals in life. I utilize my over 30 years experience in the field of addictions and behavioral health to help patients. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine, one of 233 Fellows of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychiatry for the University of Florida College of Medicine and I serve on the Board of Directors for both the American Society of Addiction Medicine and the Florida Society of Addiction Medicine. I enjoy training and educating physicians on the topics related to addictions and behavioral health frequently.

Dr. Tanner definitely likes to spend a lot of time with his patients almost too much time. The secretary tried to overcharge me on my initial visit. After that I was brought to the bathroom and told to take a drug test as soon as I came in. Doctor Tanner did not want to write me a specific medication that's I normally take for my anxiety which was a little upsetting. Needless to say suspended my service and went to find another psychiatrist.
Sorry Pat. We make our office fees very clear during initial phone contact so there are no surprises. Dr. Tanner wants to spend adequate time with patients to get a good history so he may provide the best care. Addiction and mental health problems can be very complicated. Sometimes patients are seeking addictive medicines like benzodiazapines (Xanex, clonopin, valium) as their primary coping method for anxiety. It can make patients angry when they don't receive what they want.

Dr.Tanner is hands down the best Addiction Specialist Dr you will find. He is passionate about what he does & he truly cares for the well being of his patients. He constantly attends seminars & speaking events so he is either helping others or learning how to further help patients. He takes great pride in what he does & it shows. If you are serious about recovery, so is Dr. Tanner. I would give him a bazillion stars if it were an option. Millie is fantastic as well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
