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. Ireally 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 inexplaining 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.

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.

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 wentNUTS. 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!
