This was my first visit with Dr. Tan, whom I found to be very personable and knowledgeable, an excellent ophthalmologist IMO. He checked my eyes for trauma and other potential vision/eye problems, after which he said that most everything wasfine - there was no sign of glaucoma or tears in my retina, and my vision was very good for my age (65). Unfortunately, cataracts are starting to slowly develop, which is also normal for my age, so he will be monitoring my eyes over the next few years..

Dr. Tan is personable and very professional. Support staff & other doctors are very good as well. I was given a thorough eye exam, had all my questions answered and did not feel rushed to leave. I left feeling I understoodwhat is going on with my eyes and know my care plan for the next few months. That is a very reassuring thing.
