ID Consultants Physician Dr. David Tanner Named a BEST DOCTOR in America (November, 2011):
Dr. David Tanner was named a “Best Doctor” in America in the specialty of Infectious Diseases by the organization Best Doctors. The organization believes that doctors themselves have the insight into which of their peers are the “best” doctors in each specialty and therefore, are most qualified to nominate their peers. The organization states that its survey results are reliable and impartial because doctors do not pay to be included in the database, nor do they receive compensation to participate in the survey. Only five (5) percent of the doctors in any country are selected to become “Best Doctors.” Congratulations to Dr. Tanner on this remarkable honor!
