Review for Dr. Nguyen

What a great doc. After seeing a few docs for my problem, Dr. Tan recognized and diagnosed my very rare problem quickly. My eyes are back to normal now with no drugs needed.

Review for Dr. Tan

Dr. Zada, the neuro surgery team and USC saved my daughters life. Without hesitation or reservation, can I recommend Dr. Zada. We will be forever grateful for his care and compassion. If I could give him "10 Stars" that wouldn't be enough.
