A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.

I was referred to Dr Tanner over 30 years ago for my asthma, which was at the time out of control. Dr Tanner was able to manage my symptoms long term and I have few problems these days. When I do have an issue, he is caring and thoughtful and is able to bring my symptoms under control. Under his care I have not required hospitalization again.
I have been seeing Dr. Tanner for about a year. He has a lot of patients. I am very wary of Dr. Tanner because he do not spend a lot of time with you. If you see him about every 3 months you have to update him on your last visit because he do not remember what he told you to do or take. I do not know whether he uses a medical file or computer to pull your record up. That is why I am very skeptical of him. I do not have the trust in him. I did get well with my allergy but it took several visits and different medicines. I recommended another patient and she came for several visits and decided not to go back to see Dr. Tanner. She would not tell me why she will not go back. The wait is also too long to see him.
I have seen Dr. Tanner 2 times. He uses a labtop when he is talking to you about your allergy or asthma symptoms. He listen to every thing that you say and inputs it into the computer he carries with him. Then he will examine your breathing, check your mouth and ears. He also will send you for blood test and drags. He only see patients 2 days at the Buckhead office. So time is real important to him and the amount of patients he sees. He sends your prescriptions to the pharmacy online. So you have to check the drugstore more than 1 time. What I do not like is that he do make sure you have enough prescriptions for 3 to 6 months if you have chronic asthma or allergy. He is a good doctor, very mild mannered. That is why I referred other people to him. His staff is very nice.
