Selinsgrove |
Very thorough and knowledgeable doctor. My family has always followed with Dr. Betz in past so I was hesitant however Dr. Tan lives up to the reputation.
Lewisburg, Pa |
Dr. Tan told me I needed laser surgery for pressure. He didn't seem to know why and had questions for his staff. When I decided not to have the surgery and cacelled, his staff called me until I told them to stop. Then Dr. Tan wrote me a letter trying to get me to have the surgery. I saw another Doctor in Lewisburg who told me I didn't need the surgery.
I am sorry you had this experience. We have the best interest of our patient's in mind. All doctors have different philosophies on treatment of different diseases. We are glad you are getting the care you need.
Lewisburg, PA |
I spent a total of two hours from my appointment time in this office. I only saw the doctor for a few moments. He belched twice while examining my eyes and did not even excuse himself or apologize. He was not clear with his instructions and did not address my concerns. He was difficult to understand.
On behalf of Dr. Joseph Tan and Betz Ophthalmology Associates we apologize for your negative experience. We will do our best to improve our patient experiences in the future.
