Patient Comments (3)
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I have been under the care of Dr. Tanabe for many years and I would be very disappointed to not have him as a family Doctor and a friend.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Tanabe is an excellent doctor who takes the time to get to know his patients and who truly cares for them. He literally saved my life by making sure I got my screenings done on time. He is open to alternative care within reason. He takes care of my husband, my sister [I recommended him to her] and me in a professional and caring manner. We have bene his patients for over 25 years. Scheduling issues are NOT his fault. Husband 65 / I am 62. About 3 visits per year each??
in Colorado Springs, CO |
I had expressed an interest in following up on some long term acid reflux that was already being treated. Dr Tanabe indulged my interest by authorizing a test, but neither of us were all the excited about it. That is until I was unable to schedule it due to spouses travel job and an unrelated surgery I had to schedule. After I told them, several times I wasn't able to schedule, they sent me a note with his name on it threatening me with having cancer, which is unlikely at best.
