He has grown a love for his patients and really enjoys the new areas of medicine that he has experienced. He worked a lot of late night shifts and long hours at the ER, so he definitely appreciates the opportunity to spend more time traveling and especially time with his family.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Vantassell "Dr. VanTassell has a passion for medicine and a love for learning and teaching as well. He is always willing to allow medical students to shadow him. He loves helping people when they are in trouble. In August of 1994 Dr. VanTassell was driving home after a night shift at the ER, he stopped at the side of the rode to assist a car wreck victim. He made the local news after performing an emergency cricothyrotomy on the trapped victim. It was a miracle that the victim survived and they have stayed in contact for years afterwards. If you get in a car wreck, he is definitely the guy you would want around to assist in an emergency situation. "
