Dr. Tan has seen me for shoulder problems 3 times. He is an outstanding doctor. He gives me confidence that I am getting the best care. He is also takes time to thoroughly explain what is happening to me and answers all my questions. He is also very personable.

My son had a finger injury, and Dr. Tan provided excellent care and reassurance. He took the time to outline the options clearly and was very accessible.
