My primary concern for visit was chronic sinusitis I've had for years, Dr Tan addressed and indicated was very dry nasal passages causing the feeling of fullness and some blockage sensation, and not chronic sinusitis. I am satisfied with DR Tan's assessment of my sinus condition and recommendation of treatment.

When I told Dr. Tan I was concerned about having this infection potentially spread to my lungs, he went out of his way to listen to them to ensure they were clear.
