I believe Dr. tanna is a wonderful doctor. He seems like he’s always rushed moving from room to room and never really asks me if I have any questions about my eyes. He doesn’t do a good job of explaining the issues I have with my eyes and why he is doing the procedures to correct them. After each appointment I feel like I am more confused than the one before. I have trust that he is doing the right thing I just don’t feel like he has enough time with patients to answer their questions.

I am a first time patient with Dr. Tanna. I have been receiving other medical care with doctors in the digestive health clinic. I was so impressed that I moved all of my care to Northwestern Medicine. I travel from Springfield Illinois about 200 miles to receive the care. I know even though a doctors appointment can take 18 hours out of my day I believe it’s well worth it for the quality of care I am receiving.

Well it's nice to come in for your appointment on time and be able to be taken care of in preparation for you to see the Doctor, and they let you know that he will be in to see you after he is done with his patient before me. You cannot be in a hurry when you have a Dr. Appt. because you want him to be thorough in your examination when he sees you.

Dr. Tanna is an expert in Glaucoma. He has shepherded me through some very difficult experiences over the course of my many years under his care. He has excellent clinical skills and is determined to find the best solution to any problem. Dr. Tanna is a caring physician with a clear communication style that is easy to understand. When the news is not good, he is straightforward & still optimistic. I trust him completely with my vision, and that is no small thing. Thank you Dr. Tanna.
