Prior to my colonoscopy I contacted both Dr. Tanner's office and my insurance company to make sure that the procedure was covered. I was told that it was. Subsequently I received a bill for $500 from a lab in Memphis where they had sent a specimen for analysis. My insurance company refused to pay for the bill because it was not "preventative." I was not told in advance that this testing was going to be done and that I would have to pay for it.

I am 66 years old. I began having colonoscopies when I was 50. Of the four (4) gastroenterologists, I visited over the past 16 years, Dr. Tanner is by far the best. His skills, patience and thoroughness were unbelievably awesome. While a potentially malignant mass was found, his guidance, recommendations and follow-through saved my life. In my estimation, Dr. Tanner is the one to see for the best gastrointestinal care in the metro Atlanta area!
