    I highly recommend Dr. Jeffrey Tan! My dad was referred to Dr. Tan by a friend who was treated last year at USC Keck hospital and couldn't speak highly eoungh. Dr. Tan is not only super friendly and professional but also provides the best service...my Father was treated like he's in the best private hospital ever. Both my dad and I felt like he gave us the time and care that we deserved. And most importantly, the surgery result came out amazing! Thank you very much Dr. Tan!!
