Dr. Tan was so wonderful. She really listened to everything I had to say and answered every question. She even went as far as doing a little research on her computer for me during the visit. Best dermatologist experience I have ever had!

Dr. Tan was very professional and efficient - but not very friendly or personable. She didn't introduce herself and it was clearly an "in and out" appointment, where I felt like i was taking up her time when i had furtherquestions about my skin. My questions were answered and my body scan was complete, but not as friendly as i would have assumed.

The office seemed very nice and the front desk was extremely pleasant. However, Dr. Whitney Tan was not what I expected. She rushed me through the appointment and hardly assisted with any of my questions. Very quick to look over myskin and felt as though I did most of the talking. I left feeling very unsatisfied and unsure about anything I had actually made the appointment for. Safe to say I will not return for a future visit.

Quite possibly one of the best MD experiences I've ever had. I didn't feel rushed, and she was very attentive. I'm an RN, so I've grown to be extremely picky and Dr. Tan is fantastic.

I thought she was excellent. I have been to a number of doctors after having a dysplastic mole removed several years ago and wanting to stay on top of regular skin checks. Many derms I've seen since have done quick onceovers or spent most of their time chatting up cosmetic products. Dr. Tan was very thorough, personable and did a great job putting me at ease that everything was looking good. I'll definitely be seeing her for my regular appointments.

Dr. Tan was great. She was professional, thorough, and effecient without making me feel rushed. She listened to all my concerns and offered solutions to them and even addressed an issue I forgot to mention. She didn't try to upsell meor push me into treatements I didn't want. She just offered solutions and worked with me to pick what was best for me right now. Totally happy with the whole process and will definitely go back with any other dermo needs.

I visited Dr. Tam almost three months ago because my skin was still discolored after two years of having a baby, and because I had many dark spots all over my back and face from adolescence acne. Dr. Tam took hertime to examine my skin carefully and prescribed a cream and a sulfur soap for my daily use. It's been almost three months since I started using what she prescribed me, and my skin has changed significantly. The dark spots have become clearer and I now feel confident to use halter-necks shirts. My face has become completely acne free. I recommend this highly knowledgeable doctor to every one.
