Dr. Tannehill is kind, patient and thorough. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of cancer care. His staff is also excellent. The entire team goes above and beyond to ensure patient's needs are met.

Undermining and arrogant and belittling. Not professional bedside manners whatsoever and made me feel like a child even though I'm a medical professional and my mother helping me out is a nurse of 30 years. I was therefore the I - 131 treatment and my regular doctor, doctor Magus, was on vacation. He was a jerk and I would never recommend them to anyone.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
