What People Say About Dr. Valiant Tan, MD

I had my appointment with Dr Tan today and he was so patient, listened to what I had to say, then took the time to explain everything I needed and wanted to know. Having come from another oncologist, I have to say that I’m so glad that I made the decision to switch. I would highly recommend Dr Tan to those that have other sad things going on in their lives (loss of my child, in my case), besides cancer.

My experience with this Dr. was absolutely horrific. He was aggressive in his delivery of information in an attempt to bully me into treatment immediately. Stay away. Do not let this fear monger administrator your treatment plan. Run. Fast. Seek a second opinion.

Dr. Tan=horrible.I highly recommend that you find any other oncologist but him.I begged him to not do the3rd treatment on my dad, as I could easily tell my dad was having extreme difficulties w/ the aggressiveness of the treatments.Dr. Tan insisted that my dad have 4 treatments before he would do a PET scan- as he said he wanted to make sure that he had gotten all cancer when really I am sure this had to do with insurance.My dad has been to the ER 3x'a since the 3rd treatment w/no apology.

Do not recommend this Physician. He is out of touch, has no sense of urgency and doesn't seem to see patients as human beings. My experience with him treating my mom was horrible, tasteless and disgraceful.
