Patient Comments (6)

Dr Tannous is a wonderful doctor. His primary concern is that his patients are comfortable. I have been seeing him for 3 years and he has never suggested a procedure without complete explanation of what to expect and the results we hope to achieve.

Dr. Tannous is a fine doctor. He is very patient with listening to people's problems. He has made good decisions for handling my pain, and is a very reasonable person. I would recommend him to friends and family.

Those that want pills alone for their treatment should reconsider the detriment of doing so.
