Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Tan has been the most helpful doctor. He took the time to ask a lot of questions and work on finding a thorough diagnosis.He really cares about his patients and wants to solve the problem, not just mask it. I really like his aggressive approach to finding a solution. The front office and nurses are also exceptional -- they are kind spirited and very organized. I love walking in and seeing them before I go in to see the doctor. They're very helpful and polite, which is great when you are ill or stressed out.
Dr Tan was patient and allowed my to list my many symptoms. Some doctors rush you and cut you short while explaining your reasons for visiting, but he listened, took diligent notes, and asked important questions. He took great care in explaining my allergies and his prescribed treatment, and I felt very well cared for. His entire staff was warm, kind, and engaged with my chattiness :) Overall a great experience and a doctor I'm happy to go back to! The only negative is expensive parking -- I'd definitely recommend looking for street parking and avoiding the parking garage.
Reassuring. Discussed a new, updated regimen. A gentle doctor who explains what's what.
I have had allergy symptoms for many years yet never made them time to see an allergist, until I woke up this morning with swelling in my face. I was lucky enough to get a same day appointment with Dr. Tan. The doctor and his entire staff were patient and kind, and I feel more in control of my allergies after the visit. I will recommend Dr. Tan's office to friends and family.
Dr Tan is Professional, likable, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Dr. Tan takes time to listen and address any and all concerns. He is patient, kind, and knowledgeable.
Amazing Doctor! I've been to several allergists in Los Angeles and Dr. Tan is by far my favorite. He is extremely knowledgable and kind. He spent over an hour with me, explaining and talking through my complicated issues. So happy I found him!
The entire staff was courteous and got me in right away. Dr. Tan was great. He understood my symptoms and put me on a course of treatment that's helping greatly. The office accommodated me quickly with a last minute appointment and I love that they have weekend hours so that I don't have to take time off work.
Quality healthcare at its finest
Dr Tan and his office were kind, knowledgeable and efficient! Verg happy to have found them.
He listened to a very long, complex story about how my particular symptoms developed and progressed and started working on a plan to solve my problems with me. Excellent bedside manner, spent plenty of time with me, had excellent advice.
I was very impressed by my visit. Not only did he explain everything to me, he also included my husband...He answered any questions we had and was also very interested in what we had to say. HE CARED !!! That is something that you don't see now a days - anywhere.....I am a person - not just a NUMBER on his chart. Thank You Dr Tan....
He is a pleasure to work with and really takes his time to make you feel comfortable and understood. So glad to have him as a doctor.
Very professional and very thorough. One of the best experiences I've ever had as a new patient going to a new doctor. He spent a lot of time answering my questions and his staff was extremely helpful.
I was in crisis-mode today and had heard of Dr. Tan and his abilities to treat allergies. The unusual conditions of a drought winter (Jan 2014) in the San Fernando Valley put "unusual" things in the air and my allergies went NUTS. Dr. Tan and the staff at California Asthma & Allergy Medical Group were very kind, reassuring and made me feel very at ease! Staff and Dr. Tan all gave me very individualized attention to my situation. I appreciate this! Dr. Tan's treatment included a new pharma on the market (great!) and he emphasized that I MUST call him if my situation has NOT improved within the next 48-72 hours. I was very grateful! Next: we are going to do the skin tests to determine EXACTLY what my body/respiratory system doesn't like. I have been looking for this sort of attention for YEARS! Thanks!
Dr. Tan and his staff are fantastic. Didn't wait at all, everyone was really nice and attentive. Highly recommended!
