What People Say About Dr. Swee Lian Tan, MD

The front desk guy really needs to be retrained. Doesn’t know basic questions. Very hard to understand & doesn’t really care. The cleanliness of the office at the Broadway Location is very unprofessional. Can’t believe HIPPA hasn’t shut them down.

Dr. Tan clearly explained what she would be doing during my surgery, and what I should expect and do (and not do) after my surgery. She encouraged me (and my husband) to ask questions and thoroughly answered them. I've had very good results (and an incision that has healed so beautifully I suspect will be barely noticeable in time). I also found Dr. Tan to be quite personable, in addition to being extraordinarily well qualified.

I had an appointment with Dr. Tan on 10-15-15. I was told I needed a vein procedure done and discussed appointment times with the office manager. The office manager called me a week later and told me I needed to call my insurance regarding authorization forms because she didn't have time. To date (2-3-16) I haven't been called for an appointment. This office is very incompetent and I feel abandoned by the doctor.
