Dr Tanna is a wonderful surgeon. He performed a procedure on me that other doctors said I would not be a candidate for, and he did a fantastic job! He is a perfectionist and makes sure every detail is perfect. I had a lot of questions, and he was very generous with his time to answer all of them and put me at ease. Katie, his PA, is also wonderful! And Britany and the office staff are very accommodating and sweet. I feel fortunate to have found him and give him the highest of recommendations!

When you walk into the office, the receptionist is warm & welcoming. Dr Tanna is so friendly,I immediately relaxed. I went to talk about breast reconstruction surgery after breast cancer. Dr Tanna explained my options in a clear & conscice way. I'm comfortable making a decision now. I would recommend Dr Tanna to anyone considering plastic surgery.

I had a lipoma roughly 6cm located in my cheek/neck area near the parotid gland and jugular. Under normal circumstances this would have been a relatively easy surgery, however, the location of the lipoma made it somewhat complex. When I first met Dr. Tanna he referred me to a head and neck specialist to remove the lipoma itself, he would close and make it look good. The fact that Dr. Tanna brought in another expert because of the complexity of this surgery gained instant credibility with me. Dr. Tanna is one incredible surgeon. I can't thank him enough for the solid guidance and advice, as well as leaving little to no scar. Everything from our consultation to the actual surgery was executed with precision and professionalism. Btw, his team is amazing from Brittany to the PA's, I just can’t thank him enough. I am incredibly grateful.

I have worked in healthcare for several years and have dealt with thousands of healthcare practitioners and physicians. Dr. Tanna is simply the best of the best. I had a lipoma in my back for 7 years and my dermatologist recommended I see a plastic surgeon for removal as the lipoma was deep into my back and pretty large. I had seen good reviews of Dr. Tanna online and thought I’d give him a try. I was immediately impressed by the professionalism of his staff and beautiful office space. But honestly, the patient care is what sets him apart. Dr. Tanna has an incredible bedside manner, is easy to talk to and explains everything in simple terms that was easy for me to understand. Plus, he is exceptional at what he does- I’m 6 weeks post-op and could not be happier with how the surgery went and how my scar is looking already (and I know it’s only going to get better). Also, the incision is smaller than I thought it was going to be.

He and onco surgeon Dr. Kuncewitch together excised a very sizable growth from my back. Happily it turned out to be benign. Both doctors could not have been more helpful and caring... and effective. 6 weeks post-surgically my back scar is a barely noticeable thin line, an amazing surgical result. Dr. Tanna and his excellent staff (ditto Dr. Kuncewitch) have been amazingly responsive, caring and helpful.

. Tanna is an amazing doctor. I had a breast reduction done and couldn’t be happier. He is so meticulous and confident in what he does. He’s very caring and listens to all of your concerns. He makes you feel comfortable and is very honest about what results can be achieved safely. I highly recommend Dr. Tanna. His assistant and staff is great too. Unrelated to my surgery, we came to him for a 4th consult for a deviated septum for my wife. The previous 3 ENT doctors all wanted to cut and charge $6,000 cash plus insurance payment. When we saw Dr. Tanna, he diagnosed her in less than 5 minutes with a serious medical condition. He told her that he thinks she has vasculitis. We went to a rheumatologist and she diagnosed her with vasculitis. The rheumatologist was very impressed that a plastic surgeon was able to diagnose it. Dr. Tanna said that if she would have had the deviated septum surgery, her nose could have died. We are very great full to have met Dr. Tanna.

Dr. Tanna is a great surgeon. He is genuine, caring, and compassionate. He takes the time to listen to you as you speak. He makes you feel like your his only patient and that you matter. I was feeling very nervous, anxious, and fearful about my mastectomy and reconstruction surgery. I was still in shock that this was even happening to me. To my surprise, Dr. Tanna called to check on me and put my fears to rest the day before my surgery. He also gave me his number, where he can be reached directly, just in case I have any questions or concerns after surgery. The day of surgery he performed DIEP reconstruction of my breast and abdomen after a double mastectomy. I can honestly say, Dr. Tanna was sent to me by God. I am very pleased with his work. He gave me my body back and I feel like a brand new women. Dr. Tanna in a way rebuilt my body, as well as my confidence. He brought me back to pre baby body. I will be forever greatful. Thank you so much Dr. Tanna.

When I met Dr. Tanna for the first time he offered an optimistic and hopeful approach towards the rather frightful news that had just hit me. Dealing with breast cancer was a battle never fought. Dr Tanna and his team took all my questions and concerns seriously. He came up with suggestions and solutions. He offered them to me politely and without pressure. I felt carried by somebody who knew what would be best for me but I also experience a space which allowed me to make my own decisions. Dr. Tanna helped to educate and guide me. This made a big difference in my health journey and I am thankful for that.

Doctor Tanna: My first impression was wow is this doctor for real. My first visit mind blowing, his whole demeanor professional brilliance yet down to earth, his confidence in what he could do for me. He listened, understood me explained how he can help me. He gave me options, drew illustrations assured me I was going to look the way I wanted to look. He got me, I didn’t want cancer to change me. Mind scars without visual. My fight, my way. He guided me through one of the toughest times of my life. He put me back together, I had reconstruction with implants. My body didn’t cooperate, so he had to redo my surgery 3x he figured out what to do & here I am perfect! He’s an artist & perfectionist. He listens to his patients he has compassion & truly is the best doctor I have ever had. Dr Tanna heard me & that’s what counts.Every trip from NJ is worth it, I know I’m getting the best advice and treatment available *Leaving MSK was the best decision I ever made. MSK = no choice, no voice.*

Where do I even start?! Dr. Tanna is hands down the most incredible physician I've ever had. From the minute I met him for a consultation, I knew that he would be my surgeon. He was calm and confident and actually took time to listen to me. Having never had surgery before, I was understandably nervous and had a million questions but Dr. Tanna never made me feel like he was too busy to answer them. He has a special way of making you feel like you're his only patient and that is hard to come by! My results are amazing - he has given me confidence that I never thought I would have. His genuine passion paired with his positive energy are just two things that make Dr. Tanna stand above the rest. No need to continue your search - Dr. Tanna is the one!!

I recently had my eyelid lift done at his office and it was the best decision ever! Dr Tanna is truly one of a kind!! Since day 1, He respects what I have to say and engages in conversations showing interests, coming up with a plan of action that’s always what is best for me. Getting closer to 50 but not ready to do a facelift, I asked Dr Tanna what would work best on me without being notifiable. The results are so amazing!! I am seriously so happy I did it!! People keep telling me that I look amazing and I am actually the only one that knows why: all around my eyes it looks smooth and I enjoy now a more youthful appearance.

I'm so glad I did some research in my area and managed to find Dr. Neil Tanna who specializes in breast reconstruction. I can't imagine a better, more knowledgable, and more talented doctor to have handled my breast reconstruction. Having had a lumpectomy, fat transfer surgery was a great option to help fill in what the lumpectomy and radiation took away from my breast. He was able to bring me back to "normal" in just two surgeries (sometimes more are indicated) and I couldn't be happier with the results. Aside from his medical talents, he is a nice man with a wonderful bedside manner who made himself available to me via phone for any questions or concerns I might have before or after surgery. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon and I highly recommend him!

The first time I met Dr Tanna, I knew right from the start he was the dr for me. He explained EVERYTHING to me and had the most amazing patiences with all my questions. I was diagnosed with BC 2018 and did BMX with another dr. I was not happy physically and emotionally. A friend of mine gave me his number. I looked him up right away. Well... his reviews said it all to me. As soon as I called to make an appt, they were so pleasant on the phone. Once I met Dr tanna he explained 3 different procedures to me and which one he thought was best and we were BOTH in an agreement with it. Fast Forward I am 10 weeks out and he gave me my life back. I can’t describe to you how much I feel me again before the diagnosis!! Any questions, any thoughts, any pain he called me back. No one else but him. I was HIS patience. That alone means a lot. I know I was in the best hands and I would highly recommend him to anyone. I’m beyond grateful that I found him.

Receiving the news of cancer and then the course of treatment being a bilateral mastectomy was extremely terrifying. Upon meeting Dr. Tanna, I had such confidence in my decision. On our first meeting, Dr. Tanna appeared confident, knowledgeable and extremely skilled and passionate about his work. I feel so lucky to have been referred to Dr. Tanna. I am extremely grateful and impressed with the results of my reconstructive surgery. Dr. Tanna and his incredible and kind staff helped me walk the path of recovery and I am feeling great!
