Treatment Philosophy

Dr. Tanzer's primary objective is to resolve issues and concerns. Dr. Tanzer is well versed in the latest therapeutic approaches. There is no one best treatment approach but rather what approach is best for each individual.

Working together a plan is developed that takes into consideration medical history, past treatments and experiences and most importantly present issues and concerns that play a role in life's dynamics. After each session the treatment plan is reviewed and based upon discussions and progression, the treatment plan may be further tailored.

The use of modern therapeutic techniques has created an evolution in the available modalities used to achieve meaningful short term goals. Treatment no longer needs to take months before experiencing noticeable improvements. Treatment is focused on achieving tangible improvement in a relatively short period of time through the use of targeted medication and therapy.
