Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

This is the WORST doctor I’ve ever seen! I saw her about one toe hurting, but she convinced me I Needed to have all 4 small toes operated on or I’d soon return to have the other 3 done also. I trusted her from the NW reviews, so I had the surgery. It’s been a NIGHTMARE ever since! I called repeatedly complaining of intense pain in one toe but she brushed it off. When I finally got in at post-surgical appt she claimed all was fine. I asked why then was one toe so painful and she replied “IT’S AS IF YOU HAD FOUR CHILDREN AND ONE DIDN'T TURN OUT”! I said “that’s not an answer”, but she told me it was the only one I’d get, and left the room. It’s been months, every step is painful no matter the style or material of shoe. I’m worse off now than before surgery, my foot is a huge mess, and I deeply regret crossing paths with her! She’s condescending, arrogant, dismissive! She truly doesn’t care about her patients, they’re merely quick $’s. In, Out, Gone! Be forewarned, FIND. ANOTHER. DR!

Dr. Tan was rude, dismissive, condescending and downright insulting. She was defensive when I asked her about a non invasive procedure that sounded promising for my circumstance. She rushed me through the appointment without answering, addressing or even acknowledging some of my questions and concerns.

I am absolutely flabbergasted by the negative comments about Dr. Tan. She is the best podiatrist and her staff is very helpful. I had hammer toe surgery about 2 years ago, and was able to walk in a boot the next day. I did all of the therapy she requested after the surgery and feel great. So great, I am having the other foot done in the next month. She is an excellent, kind considerate Dr. that knows her feet!

This doctor is the most miserable excuse for a doctor that I have ever encountered. From the first meeting (which should have been my Q to never go back) to the surgery and after were fantastically horrific. In my opinion stay clear of this one.

Dr Tan saved my life not once but twice. I fully trust her, when she says a treatment is necessary, it is. Twice I had a severe infection in my foot, worsened by my out of control diabetes. Dr Tan told me that I could have lost my toe, my foot and ultimately my life if I did not start controlling my diabetes. She cared to be up front and tell me the hard truth. It was a long road and she never wavered. More Drs need to be like her. Thank Dr Tan for being honest with me about treatment. I needed to stop being defensive and admit I was wrong in how I was handling my health. Many Thanks Matt

She was entirely dismissive of me and my concerns. She made both my feet worse. I am currently seeing Orthopedic surgeon to correct her mistakes. She also doesn’t stand behind her work. When the mistake was found she told me it was now my problem. If I was a wealthy person I would sue her. I definitely recommend you do not go to her. My regular doctor won’t recommend her anymore. Stay away!

I initially saw Dr. Tan for a painful callus on my right foot. I strongly suggest that you don’t waste your time as I did look elsewhere for your podiatry care. Dr. Tan is rude and insulting. I hadn’t seen a podiatrist for over 9 years and she was extremely aggravated that I couldn’t remember his name. She told me I had a callus on my foot and that I needed a series of X-rays to determine its cause. When I asked if she was going to do anything for it she said not until she saw the X-rays. She told me I’d most likely need custom made orthotics (that aren’t covered by Medicare and that are extremely expensive) to alleviate the problem I refused scheduling a follow up appointment and saw another podiatrist who shaved the callus and my pain was immediately gone. He suggested that I purchase a $39 Spenco over the counter orthotic to solve a repeat of the painful callus. Problem solved. I should have turned Dr. Tan in for Medicare fraud as she basically did nothing to help me.

RUN (OR LIMP) AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!! Dr. Tan is a nightmare. She is rude and condescending, has zero interpersonal skills, and FLAT OUT LIES to her patients to hustle them for more $$$$. Do not believe her when she tells you that you "have no other choice" than to buy the services, procedures, or med supplies that she is trying to sell you. You do have other choices. Advocate for yourself and contact your insurance to verify your ACTUAL options. Mine told me that this doctor clearly had an agenda of pushing her own vendors no matter what it cost ME. She even tried to insist that my "only choice" was a pair of $600 orthotics "only available" out-of-pocket. Guess what, my insurance offered another vendor that made my orthotics for FREE. Tan is after your money, and she isn't even pleasant to you in the process. This doctor is just awful. The wait times are tremendous. When someone treats you like they don't care about you, believe them the first time! Totally unprofessional. AVOID!

My husband and I love Dr. Tan. She is very professional and she answers any and all questions you have about what is going on with you and your issues. She explains everything in a way that is understandable and actually works with you to determine a good course of action moving forward. We so appreciate her honesty and the time she takes to make sure all our questions are answered. We could not recommend her any more highly.

Run away from this doctor. She operated on my foot and I had to limp around in pain for 3 years. She kept saying it would heal and eventually get better. I had to have a second surgery (this time with a good doctor...Dr. Pasture), and all is well now. DO NOT USE DR TAN!

Worst experience ever. If I could give less than one star I would. I am not one to typically write reviews, but after a year of attempting to work with Doctor Tan's office, I feel it necessary to warn other potential patients. Went to Doctor Tan after a recommendation from a family friend. After 9 months of repeated costly tests (x-ray, MRI, etc) - a diagnosis was made. Dismissively Doctor Tan suggested exploratory surgery. I was not interested in a fishing expedition. Instead, Doctor Tan

I felt she was very rushed at every appointment, her staff seemed caught up in the whirlwind. We tried a conservative approach, initially she said 4-6 weeks but at 4 weeks she said there's nothing else to do except surgery or try out-of-pocket orthotics. I wanted to talk to her after my disappointing ordeal, she did leave a voice mail but never gave me the opportunity to talk to her. I'm glad I went elsewhere.

I felt verbally bullied by her. Plus the cut off ingrown toe nail was left in my toe until it worked its way out. No wonder it hurt for 5 weeks. And no it was not a callous.
