Dr. Tanna has been my PCP for many years, and my experience with her has always been extremely positive, and beneficial towards the overall goals for my health.

July 6, 2020 1:22 PM

attentive kind doctor. but visits there I'm usually there for at least an hour between checking in, waiting to see nurse, waiting to see the doctor, it can be exhausting especially when you're not feeling well, sometimes the wait makes me avoid appointments

We love Dr. Tanna and her immediate staff. During such a scary time, Dr. Tanna and her office made us feel comfortable for my daughter's 6 month check-up. We always feel so at-home with her and her staff. It makes parenting for the first time so much better.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

My family has been a patient with Dr. Tanna for over 20 years. We love her. We hate Advocate care. Dr. Tanna has so many patients now she cannot spend adequatel time. I have some health concerns and most of the time I cannot even get in. I am told to go to urgent care! I need my primary doctor to see over my care. It is very scary when you have serious health problems and can't get into your doctor.

November 14, 2019 8:20 AM

Dr. Tanna is always very approachable & professional. She really cares about me & my health. She answers all my questions and takes great care of me -

November 14, 2019 8:20 AM

At age 60, Dr. Tanna required me to have a pap smear. All my friends hadn't had paps in years. Dr. did it and discovered I had endometrial cancer. She coordinated my care & save my-life.

November 13, 2019 1:43 PM

Very kind and professional and caring.

November 3, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Tanna is very courteous, respectful, and knowledgeable.

November 3, 2019 6:00 PM

this was my first visit, Google maps took me to the wrong location so I was late for the appointment which probably threw the schedule off. Dr. Tanna seemed uninterested in my previous med history, although she described it as wanting to start new which is not unreasonable. She is knowledgable but seems disinclined to hear other points of view

October 30, 2019 7:00 PM

I always look forward to my appointments with Dr. Tanna. She is a wonderful listener and never makes me feel rushed. I trust her knowledge and value her kindness and compassion. I could not ask for a better PCP.

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Tanna has been my medical provider since I was 12 years old and I wouldn't change anything. Thanks for your medical service throughout the years.

October 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Tanna was very thorough and she took her time to answer all questions and concerns i might've had. This was my yearly physical and reviewing all my blood work etc. I felt very good and confident leaving my appointment.

Comfortable, professional, efficient, completely satisfactory.

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

she is always pleasant and caring.

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Takes as much time as needed with me, offers options and explains things so I can understand. Very pleased!

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

She is very professional & caring.

September 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Very positive

September 23, 2019 7:00 PM

I have been visiting this provider forn15 to 20 years. She knows all about me.

September 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Always kind, listens, office staff great.

September 9, 2019 7:00 PM

I love Dr. Tanna and has been our family doctor for 20 plus years. But since it had become Advocate, we can not get in. Always told to go to Urgent Care! Time is very limited - 15 min. per visit.
