Reflex Physician

Dr. Tanksley has over 13 years of experience in the medical field. Prior to medical school, he completed a formal apprenticeship in French Cuisine, and worked as a chef and as general manager for large restaurants in New York, San Francisco, and Seattle.

He still enjoys cooking, and additional hobbies include hiking, skiing and camping; all the Pacific Northwest has to offer! These pursuits are enjoyed in the company of his wife, along with their son and daughter. A favorite way to relieve stress is to garden and cook with his family.
