I had severe pain in my knees and I was going to an Orthopedic doctor and was getting no relief. I was on a plane and was reading the airline magazine, and there was an article on using your plasma as treatment for arthritis in the knee and for injuries. I was intrigued. The article referenced many well known athletes that have been treated with this method for many years. I began to research Platelet Rich Plasma, but could not find anyone in Roanoke, VA that did this procedure. However, as divine order would have it, I was speaking with a friend of mine and in the conversation she told me she was having a procedure done to her knee using her plasma. I then began to inquire to find out if it was the same procedure I wanted to have. Sure enough, it was and she gave me Dr. Tanner’s contact information. I called the office immediately. I want to add that I was scheduled to have a knee replacement on my left knee two weeks after I was introduced to Dr. Tanner and I cancelled it. I was not feeling good about having surgery, but I desperately wanted to get out of pain. I am soooooo grateful that I found Dr. Tanner. This was the beginning of me getting RELIEF! I came to the office and was warmly greeted by The Office Manager – Beverly Folden. By the way, the office staff are outstanding. All of the office staff are warm and congenial. I had a consultation with Dr. Tanner. I brought in my X-rays and MRI report. Dr. Tanner determined that I would be a good candidate for the PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) on my left knee. I am grateful for this alternative treatment, PRP and Prolotherapy. I am so pleased with the care that Dr. Tanner has given me and she is extremely knowledgable.Valerie
I think Dr Tanner and staff do an excellent job!Kevin
I am so thankful I found Dr Tanner almost 12 years ago after another uncaring specialist told me I would “just have to learn to live with” the excruciating pain I was experiencing from Fibromyalgia. Over the years, we have experimented with many medications and my pain level for the most part has been steady. When my pain flares, I have been able to get a same day appointment on numerous occasions for injections to relieve the elevated pain (usually caused by my overdoing it.) She listens well and is very open to trying new approaches to pain relief as they become available. I thank God for Dr. Tanner. I don’t know where I would be today without her!Melanie
Dr Tanner used acupuncture and pain management injections to relieve a terrible muscle spasm I had in my neck and shoulder. She had me back to normal after two visits and a week of physical therapy. My wife has been seeing her for a chronic lower back problem brought on by scoliosis with great results.Kevin
Staff was excellent in service, attention and response to my concerns. Dr Tanner’s evaluation was complete, very thorough and compassionate. Really helped fix my neck pain and headache.
