I researched Dr. Tanton extensively before booking an appointment and was extremely impressed with how many 5 star thoughtful reviews he has written about him on various sites. I found him to be exactly what I expected based on those reviews-thorough, professional, kind, empathetic, personable, knowledgeable, compassionate, and encouraging. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who may need an endocrinologist.

Dr. Tanton is a wonderful and caring doctor that goes out of his way to help his patients. He gets as excited as I do when my lab results are good and everything is going as planned. It is always a pleasure to see Dr. Tanton and I would highly recommend him.

Dr Tanton is the best Endocrinologist I have ever been to in 30 years as a type 1 diabetic. He is knowledgeable, thorough, explains everything so I can understand and actually uses the products like an insulin pump and sensor so he understands what it is like. I can't say enough positive things about him and his staff. I feel very fortunate to have him as my physician.
