He is a caring and no nonsense doctor. He preformed my daughter's ACL surgery and was a great cheerleader for her recovery. Scar is a bit visible compared to my ex husbands who had his done at Stanford Hospital but for a small town like HIlo, I couldn't have asked for a better healer.

Extremely dissatisfied with their services. Recently got misdiagnosed for something so simple--got sent to do labs (expensive ones too) and got billed hundreds of dollars, turns out that i didn't even need the lab because it was irrelevant to the diagnosis.

The doctors there are so nice. They listen.and then they search and search for the best way to treat you . They work as a group They have a very good bedside manner when your in the Hospital .They let you know what is going on as soon as they know.

Dr. Tan is wonderful, patient, experienced and takes her time to explain things to her patients. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a nephrologist in Hilo

Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
