I couldn't move 1 mm. I was having sharp pains in my lower back anytime I would try to move. A friend of mine told me about Dr. Tan & how he helped him when he couldn't move. When you are in this much pain, don't take time to research or check them out, just go. He helped your friend and he can probably help you. I was seen same day I called because I sensed his compassion in knowing how bad I was feeling. Very rare for doctors today. Happy to report that after my 1st session, I could once again move w/o being stabbed by sharp pains. Felt like a nail sitting on a nerve & if I moved, it would get me and get me good.He is a very polite man and quite the professional but he understands one thing that a lot of docs don't, he can sense your pain and he does his very best to take YOUR pain away. I thought he was a magician and his massage is top notch. So if you are having a bad back day or something is bothering you, stop researching and just call Dr. Tan. You will be happy that you did.
I have been having some chronic lower back pain and was recommended by a friend to go see Dr. Tan. I had never had acupuncture before and -- to be honest -- somewhat skeptical. However, even after the first visit I felt my back muscles were no longer as tight. I had three more weekly sessions and my pain now is almost entirely gone (knock wood!). Dr. Tan also assessed my general state of health on my first visit -- an unexpected perk -- and I know feel that he was indeed VERY knowledgeable about what I needed to do to improve as evidenced by the fact that my symptoms quickly subsided. In a nut shell, I highly recommend Dr Tan -- especially for people who are somewhat skeptical about the benefits of acupuncture. Dr. Tan also gave me some extra 'pointers' to help my general state of health -- both physical and mental. THANK YOU, Dr. Tan! Oh -- and one last thing: Dr. Tan is covered by my health insurance and my co-pay is very affordable!
I started seeing Dr. Tan in early March 2016 for help with fertility and anxiety/stress management. He is very prompt and courteous during each appointment. He was able to identify my problems after just taking my pulse and looking at my tongue, which was very impressive. I have been seeing him for weekly acupuncture treatments, and he is always on time. My sleep started to improve, and I have implemented his suggestions on foods/herbs/drinks to consume and avoid. I also started doing yoga weekly, at his suggestion. After only 5 acupuncture treatments, I became pregnant! This was after 11 long months of trying to conceive, and I am 35 years old. I am sure the relaxation I experience during the sessions and small lifestyle changes he suggested helped me immensely. I have recommended Dr. Tan to some friends, because I truly believe he will help them feel better! He is a wonderful, intelligent, and caring doctor. Highly recommend!
Dr. Tan is the best doctor and has helped me tremendously! Prior to finding his clinic, I had been to two other acupuncturists in Frederick (one of which was a doctor of Chinese medicine) with no improvement. I have suffered from fibromyalgia, CFS, autoimmune disease and endometriosis for years and have been to many specialists who were unable to help me. But after seeing Dr. Tan for several months I no longer have debilitating fatigue and flu-like symptoms, and my pain level has decreased dramatically. He even cured a cold I had! He is a really kind doctor and is genuinely interested in helping his patients. Because of Dr. Tan I feel like I have a bright future, not one full of illness and physical decline!
I could not be happier with Dr. Tan. I tried Accupuncture years ago with no results HOWEVER Dr Tan has been nothing short of a miracle for me. I see several doctors several days a week for a chronic pain condition but Dr Tan is the ONLY doctor who has ever been able to provide any relief. I look forward to seeing him at twice weekly appointments. Not only is he extremely knowledgable, he is genuinely kind and caring. He never rushes, he takes his time to give you the proper care. He is also always on time and completely professional. The office is beautiful and very well kept. For anyone suffering with any ailment, I highly recommend seeking out dr. Tan, you will NOT regret it!
Dr. Tan is awesome! I first stopped by his office after noticing the sign when I drove by. I went in just to see if I could make an appointment but he could see I was in extreme pain in my lower back. He took me right away and did a consultation and subsequent acupuncture treatment. He told me right away that he suspected I had bulged discs in my lower back that was causing the pain and recommended I get an MRI. I have been back for 2 additional treatments and they have worked great!! I don't take any medication to manage the pain because acupuncture works and Dr. Tan is an awesome, caring man who listens and works his wonders! Would highly recommend to anyone!
Highly Recommend!!! My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Tan weekly for over a year now. He has helped us with several Injuries, Back pain, illness and overall Health & Energy. Before we found Dr. Tan we were traveling down to Montgomery County for Acupuncture because We had tried several other places in Frederick without good results. I have recommended Dr. Tan to my friends and family. My good friend saw him for infertility and My brother initially saw him for a concussion but continued to see him for overall health and energy. Everyone I have recommended Dr. Tan to has been very pleased and continues to see him. We are thankful we found Dr Tan!
Dr. Tan is excellent at acupuncture/herbal healing, has a fantastic bedside manner and puts you at ease the moment you walk through the door. He spends time with you to help you find out the root-cause of your illness. I have only been going a short while now (2 months) and I already have a remarkable difference in my body pain, so much so that the pain is almost completely gone. His acupuncture technique is excellent too, I never feel the needles. If you are considering acupuncture, try Dr. Tan. You won't regret it.
Dr. Tan is a great doctor who listens to what you have to say and makes you feel very comfortable. He is very courteous and polite. I have been seeing him since April for severe pain on my right hip. After several treatments, I feel so much better! He has helped me to be more conscious about my posture and to stay free of stress as much as possible. I have completely change the way I eat, I get more rest and I am working on adding an appropriate exercise routine. Thank you Dr. Tan, you are amazing!
Dr. Tan is nothing short of amazing! Incredibly talented acupuncturist and he genuinely cares about his patients and their healing. Dr. Tan treated me for ongoing back pain, as well as a painful pinched nerve in my neck. I noticed remarkable improvement after the first few sessions. I am now pain free and my mobility/range of motion has returned 100%. Seeing Dr. Tan is one of the best things that I've ever done for my health and well-being! I highly recommend!
