I believe in shared decision-making: focusing on patients, not just symptoms, and coming up with plans of care that make sense for them, together as a team. I treat my patients with the same compassion and integrity as I would want demonstrated in the care of a family member.

Through my surgery, before surgery, hospital stay, and after care everyone was so nice and listened to me, answering all my questions and concern. I could not have asked for better care. I would love to thank each and every single one of them.
Dr. Tan was very informative and empathetic about my health issue. She shared the pros and cons of further treatment in order for me to make my own decision about what to do.
I was very happily surprised by the level of kindness, and absolute understanding of all staff involved. I've never been treated like someone who has tried everything and now the staff are there to help. I've only ever been told to lose the weight, eat less, move more, and just treated like an afterthought when I talked about feeling so sick or in pain. I'm grateful.
Dr. Tan's team was very good at inspiring confidence. There was a very good collegial feel.
Everything was very good.
