Specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    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.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

5 star doctor

Dr. Tanker takes time with you. He answers questions easily. Dr. Tanker is a kind man, and a good doctor. Having a colonoscopy or endoscopic exam is a nervous event. Dr. Tanker and his staff help alleviate the fear. The nurse anesthetist held my hand before the test began. Dr. Tanker talks with you and gives encouragement before the proceedure. The nursing staff before and after the proceedure give you competent care sense of comfort. The practice is a good place to go for these troublesome proceedures.

I would not recommend this doctor. Being a doctor for many years does not make someone a kind person.
