Dr. Vance Vantassell, MD
Dr. VanTassell decided to enter the medical profession when he was 16 years old, based on his enjoyment working in the Emergency Room as an orderly. He is a graduate of UC Davis and went to Oral Robert's University School of Medicine. He returned to the ER, his "first love" when he entered the Emergency Medicine Residency program at Maricopa Medical Center in Arizona where he seved as their Chief Resident. He as also voted Outstanding Senior Resident by the faculty. Dr. VanTassell served as Clinical Instructor in Emergency Medicine for the UC Davis Emergency Medicine residency training program. While training residents he was honored with the Resident's Teaching Award. After 23 years in the ER, he was offered a position at Turnure Medical Group to open an Urgent Care. 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. He has 4 grown children and 4 grand children. He seems to be a dog magnet and has a new hobby of raising bees for honey.

Care Philosophy

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.
