I have been seeing Dr. Tanner for several years now and I can't say enough positive things about him. He listens, he takes a lot of time with you and he definitely has an understanding of the addiction cycle, especially when chronic pain is involved. Many doctors are very judgmental and punitive when it comes to addiction, even when it is related to chronic pain. They don't seem to understand, so the patient feels lack of trust and more shame. Dr. Tanner has the knowledge and empathy to treat this condition so that the patient feels less shame and more empowered to deal with their problem.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Tanner‘s for 10+ years… First, I am truly impressed with their new clean facility… The TV monitor and nice music while waiting is a plus ! Millie, is his staff and is always eager to help with insurance and scheduling. I am truly grateful for the attention and care I receive monthly from Dr. Tanner. Without Dr. Tanner sharing his encyclopedic knowledge of addiction and mental illness, I would not be able to help myself or others who suffer. I count myself lucky to have found him, he had cared for me at my worst and has helped me at my best.

- 1st off, the average wait time is way off! I’ve never been called back without waiting at least 30+ minutes past my appt. (sometimes over an hr). -2nd, If your focus is only addiction then he’s a very intelligent doctor with a strict, yet low pressure approach, but having a psych dr. thats only open 3 days a week could present problems if/when you might have a depression/anxiety situation occur. In my experience, those don’t always occur during office hours! (They say 24 hr response after hours, sometimes!) - 3rd, once you finally have the ok to come back and great him for your appointment, don’t be disappointed when all he does after the first 10 minutes of your hour appt. is tap, tap, tap, on his computer all the while your trying to explain your mental situation as it seemingly falls upon resistant ears. Finally you’ll just give up and sit there twiddling your thumbs for the remaining minutes! Month after month.. Needless to say I found a better situation for myself elsewhere.

Dr. Tanner is a fine mental health provider and addiction treatment expert. He is polite and thorough. I would recommend very highly for those needing psychiatric or addiction help. Some doctors who treat addiction are demeaning to their patients. Dr. Tanner treats everyone with respect and listens carefully and responsively to his patients. His wife, Millie, handles appointments and the check-in process. She is efficient, friendly, and thorough as well.

I’ve been going to Dr. Tanner now for 10 years! He’s an amazing doctor who is highly educated in the field of addiction. He has helped me get my life together after a hydrocodone addiction that I got when I had 3 years of back pain and 3 surgeries! He goes around the country to speak at seminars to help other doctors learn the best protocols! Thank you Dr. Tanner and Mrs. Millie for everything!!

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.

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!!
