Provider greeted me in the lobby and brought me into the exam room. Excellent communication of lab results and what the interpretation of the results meant. I felt much better after having my visit to ITG this provider.

He was very thorough and he explained my condition well. He even drew a picture to provide me with a visual of what he was explaining. Great doctor!

Dr Tanner took his time with me, explaining in layman's terms what my blood work showed. He shared his concern but didn't want to reinvent the wheel from my previous doctor even though he didn't understand certain medicines at the previous doctor put me on so we are getting my medical records. He took his time and he was not in a hurry. It doesn't happen very often these days!

I love that Dr. Tanner works with me on my diet, insulin & endocrine meds to provide a whole health picture for me. I never feel like a sheep being pushed thru the corral when we visit this office. It's always a pleasure to speak with the assistants as well.

He is th best doctor. I had my lab work done on a Friday and Saturday he sent me a message thru MY Chart explaining my lab work. I have never had a doctor do that for me. He explained it for my to understand as most of it I don't know. And in his office he was fantastic; he took time with me to be sure I understand my new disease.
