Dr. Tan was incredible! He took time to talk with us, thoroughly explaining the issue, drew diagrams as well as viewing and explaining the CT scan. I would highly recommend Dr. Tan to everyone needing a Surgical Oncologist! Simply THE BEST!!

Dr. Tan is a super intelligent and brilliant doctor who always talks to you in a way that you can understand and never talks down to you or like he is better than you. I love seeing him and knowing that he is my Oncologist.

He said he'd discuss my issues w/other doctors and get back to me about next course of action. I followed up with him 5 weeks later only for him to tell me to go ask my PCP. This was frustrating as he did not do what he said he'd do.
