*Dr. Tan was incredibly kind, knowledgeable and detailed in explaining my diagnosis and treatment plan. He reviewed my imaging with me in the appointment room and took the time to review all the details of my surgery with me. He extensively described the risks/benefits of my surgery and answered all of my questions. I would recommend him to anyone.
