An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Dr. Tanner is the Number 1 Diabetic Dr. without a doubt that I have had in 45 years. He knows about diabetics and what they go thru on a day by day basis, He has family who are diabetics. He has staff that are well educated in diabetic treatments. He cares about each and everyone of his patients on a one to one basis. He is leading in his field of expertise and knows how to get you to where you need to be in blood sugar control. I even have his cell number in case I need to reach him day or night. You don't find a doctor who cares for his patients this much anymore. Thank you! Dr. Tanner
Dr. Tanner is an amazing doctor. He reminds me of the doctors they had in years gone by, where you weren't just a dollar sign moving through the office. He actualy takes time with you, he is concerned about you, he wants to make you healthy, he encourages you to meet goals and if you dont he doesn't beat you up over it. Everything about Dr. Tanner is positive. If you have issues with high blood pressure, high cholesteral, diabetes this is the Doctor you need to see!
