      I flew to Houston to get an evaluation for my problem as my local endocrinologist only wanted to put me on testosterone. I am only 22 years old and do not want to be on testosterone for life as I want to have children later on. Here is one doctor that understands my plight and put me on Clomid/HCG and carefully followed my progress. This is 5 years later, and I am on no medication and still feeling great!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Tan's Care Philosophy

      We combine a of state-of-the-art medical care with modern health screening methods. Therapeutic decisions for the client may include diet, exercise, hormonal replacement (including thyroid etc.), nutriceutical supplementation; as well as traditional methods of control of alcohol moderation, smoking cessation, control of lipids, sugar, and blood pressure. Our focus is on Men?s Health & Clinical Andrology. We do screening for male specific illnesses including sexual dysfunction, low testosterone, premature ejaculation, hair loss and prostate diseases. It is well known that death rates for men exceed women in most disease at all ages. Women also outlive men on average 7 years. As such, we have developed targeted screening programs for Men, including assessment of gender specific risks for heart disease, osetoporosis, memory & weight loss. We do treat women needing bioidentical hormones or have androgen related issues. OPAL Medical Clinic strives to offer the best service & care to our clients. Many aspects of the program are preventive. It is more in depth and detailed in nature and as such we do not contract directly with insurance companies as it may limit what we could offer to our clients. We are considered 'out of network' but if you carry the right insurance, you should submit your claim forms or use your Health Savings Accounts (HSA).
