Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Tanko acts as a Independent Medical Exam doctor. He misdiagnosed and underestimated my auto accident injuries, thus cutting off my benefits way before recovery. Patient beware.

Worst experience I've ever had, rude, disrespectful, and I felt like he had almost no clue what he was doing, and now my hands borderline disabled for life because he couldn't give me proper treatment for the severity of my injury. And didnt account for ligaments and tendons in my body when...more

He was very professional and helpful when I broke my foot. His treatment plan was not drastic and seemed to always be in my best interest.
