Specialties

Dr. Valiant D Tan has the following 2 specialties

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

Compassionate, Straight-forward, Doesn't Rush

My mother had stage-4 cancer when she first was referred. Dr. Tan spent time with the entire family, didn't pull punches, but suggested a mild treatment to keep her as comfortable as possible. She had seen a cardiologist and pulmonologist as well as her family doctor on a regular basis, but they all dropped the ball. The cardiologist even had her on a tread-mill. So Dr. Tan was a breath of fresh air, albeit too late. He, however, answered all the questions we had so she could face her limited future with a clear vision.

Substandard, Negligent treatment

I am giving the Elizabeth City office and Dr. Tan of VOA 1 star, only because 0 isn't an option. During our dear friend's entire treatment, he was never told, due to negligence and/or intentional deception for profit, that his diagnosis was stage 4 cancer. Up until the last month of his life, when he obtained a second opinion, Dr. Tan and his physician's assistant told him he was getting better and that his tumors were shrinking, when in fact, the cancer was spreading. We know this first-hand because we accompanied him to all of his appointments. Because of the substandard care we observed from day one, we encouraged our friend to seek another opinion many times but, despite his better instincts, he remained encouraged by the positive reports he was receiving. His condition declined steadily but his stage 4 diagnosis was never conveyed until a family member was told when requesting transfer of his medical records to his new physician. Please don't trust VOA with your care or that of a loved one.
