  • “"After many years of arthritic pain and loss of hand strength and dexterity, my Rheumatoligist the wonderful Dr. Charles Boniske of Visalia referred me to Dr. Cary Tanner. Before making a solid decision, Dr. Tanner informed me as to what was making my hand so painful and losing my strength. To be blunt the joints in my thumb are wore out, and he found a tumor on my right index finger. The flexor tendon in the palm of my hand is drawing tight and has a chance to rupture, if so I can lose the use of my hand. The joints in my first 3 fingers are also worn out. I had my first surgery on the 13th of June for the tumor removal with bone graft from my right knee. The surgery was a great success with no pain that’s right NO PAIN! The scar is hardly visible. I'm scheduled for the most intensive surgery on the 22nd of August. I have complete faith that all will go well. Dr. Tanner is very thorough and has your best interest at heart. He has a very calming manner about him that puts you at ease and is very complete in his summation of your health concerns. His staff speaks very highly of him and what a caring a good boss he is. The staff is very professional and takes care of your concerns with the utmost most professionalism Thanks to all of your for FIRST RATE CARE. Also, a special thanks to Sierra Summit Surgical for outstanding care during my surgery."”

  • “"In September, Dr. Tanner did a wrist surgery for me and at my last visit with him I mentioned my dilemma and asked him to recommend a good shoulder doctor. He did more than that; he took my records and MRI to Dr. Thomas and now after seeing Dr. Thomas only one week later, I find myself scheduled for the surgery next Wednesday, November 28. I have the greatest respect and admiration for the doctors and staff at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics."    ”

  • “"I have been utilizing Dr. Tanner for my health needs for several years. Recently I saw him and Dr. Johnson. I could not ask for better care. The staff in the office are friendly and helpful as was the radiology staff. I also saw Dr. Wiens for a procedure and experienced the same with him. I will always utilize Dr. Tanner because I trust him and know you cannot find any better physician in regards to his skills. He is also friendly and takes the time to listen to you. Thank you all for your excellent care."”

  • “"Two months ago I had the basal joint surgery done on my left hand performed by Dr. Tanner. I was getting to the point of not being able to use the thumb due to pain. After two months, it has very little pain, so little that I'm ready to have the right hand basal joint repaired by Dr. Tanner."”

  • “"I have been a patient of Dr. Tanner for problems with my hands for many years. The carpal tunnel syndrome was becoming severe; waking me up at night and numbing my hands during the day. A cortisone injection last fall helped postpone surgery until I was able to temporarily leave my employment, which requires use of both hands. On February 13, I had surgery on my left hand - for the carpal tunnel problem - and on a finger deformed from arthritis. The staff at Summit Surgical was amazing. From check-in at the front desk, to discharge, everyone was kind, caring, and competent. I witnessed thorough infection control, as staff members disinfected gurneys, pillows, and other hard surfaces, increasing my confidence in the facility. I did see Dr. Tanner for a brief visit before surgery and he was efficient and exacting. The anesthesiologist was so informative and he encouraged my participation in decisions about anesthesia; I truly appreciated that." -- Jean K.”

  • “"I have suffered from carpal tunnel on and off for 15 years. As you can imagine, it's not a whole lot of fun. I finally made an appt with Dr. Tanner to see how bad it was. It turned out it was pretty severe in my right hand with my left hand catching up pretty quick. "I love Dr. Tanner. He listened and let me plan when and how to do the surgery. In my case, I chose to do a bilateral surgery (having both hands done at the same time). A crazy choice some might say, but it worked for me. The surgery went great and now, four months later, I'm doing great. I noticed that the carpal tunnel pain and loss of feeling was gone the minute I returned to the recovery room and has stayed gone. It's fabulous. Dr. Tanner did such a good job that you can't even tell I had surgery! "My whole experience at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics, from Dr. Tanner, the surgery staff, nurses, and John over in the PT department were all wonderful. Any surgeries I may need in the future will be done at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics. They are truly a step above anyone else. Thank you to Dr. Tanner and all the wonderful staff! You know how to make someone feel special!"”

  • “"Dr. David Taylor has seen me through several hip replacements, shoulder tears, and knee tears. He has been my angel here on earth with his great god given talent for surgeries and no infections. His compassion has been excellent. I am now waiting for a knee replacement (first knee replacement) & the confidence I have in him brings me such relief. His nurse George has always been courteous and so helpful when I have called. His assistant Todd has helped me through all the pre-op information that is needed. Thanks to all the staff. I would and have recommend in a heartbeat. Dr. Tanner has seen me for finger and wrist repairs. This last surgery with Dr. Tanner was for my right hand that swelled to the point where I could not close my fingers or drive.  He saved me from almost losing my hand with his excellent care. When I went to see him, he put me immediately in the hospital. My thanks to his excellent god given talent would recommend him in a heartbeat."”

  • “"I had intense arthritis pain and major disfigurement on my left index finger and my left pinky. The surgery I had to relieve the pain and correct the disfigurement was the best decision I made. Dr. Tanner explained everything in great detail. Everyone I dealt with was exceptionally personable and professional. I am completely pleased with the results, and the pain and disfigurement are gone. I would highly recommend Sierra Pacific Orthopedics to anyone. My sister was recently referred to Sierra Pacific Orthopedics by her doctor. I know she is in great hands."”

  • “"My experience with Dr. Tanner & Catalina has been wonderful. I feel like I have been in the best of hands with Dr. Tanner. He is caring and stepped in when another doctor had only made matters worse. His excellent surgical skills and care have started to right a horrible injury to my elbow, so that I will be able to use my arm and hand again. His assistant, Catalina, has always been very kind and helpful when contacting her with questions and concerns. I always get a prompt response. The whole staff at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics have all been very kind, helpful, and professional. I could not ask for better care."”

  • “Dr. Tanner is a truly caring Physician and one of the best I have been treated by I had a surgery that fixed an almost shredded tendon in my lower arm. I had no idea what was wrong but within a few minutes and some tests right there in the office he knew what the issue was. It was confirmed by an MRI I had surgery and although it was an extensive rehab I have had no trouble since the surgery. I have recommended Dr Tanner to others because of his professional but easy going demeanor and his excellent skills.”

  • “Can't say enough about a great experience. In and out fast! The doctor even made arrangements for us to get a custom splint made at the same time so we didn't have to come back for a second appointment. I would recommend the injection for Dupuytren's as a quick solution. I love having full use of my hand back. Thanks to everyone, definitely a team effort.”
