I was so glad when I finally found Dr Tan. I had in the past seen 4 different endocrinologists and none of them provided me with the excellent care or compassion like Dr. Tan.

Early detection and a competent compassionate care team “life saving†!
She‘s excellent。
I’m so happy Dr Tan is still a provider under my insurance. I received notification during mid year that she was no longer a provider and I was very sadden to hear it.

She’s great
Excellent caregiver; I feel so lucky to have found her; and I’m so happy to still be able to work with her despite moving out of the area.
Dr. Tan always makes everything clear, never leaves me questioning anything or feeling lost. She moves an appointment along quickly while never ever feeling rushed. She has excellent communication skills that are lacking in most doctors. Many doctors rush and cut me off and will make me miss something in my notes, yet Dr. Tan’s communication style prompts me to quickly check my notes for something I forgot to ask. It’s a unique ability to be so thorough without making the patient feel cut off and left with unanswered questions they later wish they’d asked - and do so in a timely way.
Dr. Tan is an outstanding doctor. She is extremely knowledgeable, kind and an excellent clinician. As a physician, I know who is good and who is not. Dr. Tan is a physician’s physician. I could not feel more confident in her hands.

This was my "new patient" appointment and I found Dr. Marilyn Tan to be warm, patient, knowledgeable and organized.
Very thorough and professional
Dr Tan is very thorough and personable
Dr. Tan is absolutely wonderful. And under such time pressure as our video consult was 20 min. She apologized for being slightly late (for a Monday, 3 min late is nothing) and began by asking Qs and giving an update on how the sensor #s looked. Dr Tan indicated that the primary reason seeing her (regarding insulin usage or not) was resolved. She is excellent, more than we can convey in words.
Dr. Tan was on time, professional, and supportive. She has followed up on everything we discussed.
Dr. Tan is an incredible doctor. She is knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, personable, and a highly effective communicator. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
She is very professional and a pleasure to have as a doctor!
She is great as always
I think Dr. Tan is an amazing endocrinologist & highly recommend her!
The greatest! :)
As an obese woman, she is one of the only doctors who has not been distracted by my weight when determining appropriate treatment. She has actually helped me identify issues that are not part of her expertise even after getting several opinions. Her recommendation to see a dermatologist helped end a 4+ month cycle of doctors being unable to identify the actual issue at hand. A few having assumed i was diabetic and the injury was cellulitis, even after seeing recent test results proving i was not. I am so grateful for her and only wish there were more genuinely caring doctors like her in this world.
Pleasant and professional
Excellent Doctor....I am lucky to have her !!!
Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to
I would like to thank Dr Tan for an excellent video visitor
Marilyn Tan has been treating me since the previous endocrinologist at the Stanford Endocrinology lab left around 2017. She's done an excellent job at always explaining this to me, making sure she's answered my questions in a way I understand and has always shown genuine patience when I'm having difficulties communicating or finding the words to describe what I'm experiencing. Dr. Tan has consistently demonstrated professionalism, compassion, empathy, and an excellent standard of care. If I had a friend of a family member that needed recommendations for the best endocrine-related care I knew, I would highly recommend her.
She is excellent.

She is a great doctor. I’m very happy to be her patient.
Was caring and knowledgeable
Visit was good
Dr. Marilyn Tan was very helpful and professional. She addressed my concerns, explained her reasoning, and shared her thought process on the management of my full thyroid hormone supplementation and management of my care. She clarified anything I was unsure of and answered my questions thoughtfully, and respectfully. I felt listened to, taken seriously, and acknowledged as a person and as a patient. I have had some pretty dehumanizing experiences while seeking out medical care, to the point that unnecessary invasive procedures have pushed onto me while disoriented, desperate, and very ill, and actions were taken that have physically harmed me despite my protests. Therefore, it is especially reassuring when doctors take the time to be empathetic, actively listen, and be respectful of the patient.
She is an excellent example of the very best that Stanford offers .I value her as excellent doctor and caring professional.
Marilyn was very warm and friendly. I look forward to an in person visit sometime soon.
went well
She is a very knowledgeable and friendly physician. I am lucky to have her as my endocrinology physician. She is really taking good care of my health.

Since the pandemic I've only done video appointments. I miss seeing Dr. Tan in person, but she gives the same quality of care & concern as much as she would in person. I’m grateful I can be in the comfort of my home & still get the same quality of care. Thank you Dr. Tan!!!
Dr. Tan is an excellent doctor.

Dr Tan is the be best! After going to her for a second opinion, I switched to permanently seeing her from my care/and surgeries at UCSF.
I would not go anywhere else but here to Stanford
The care provider is excellent. I always have positive experience with her. She is brilliant. I have thyroid problem as my thyroid ad parathyroid glands were taken out 30 years ago. I am also diabetic. I am feeling healthy and my sugar level has been perfect. based on my blood tests and research she prescribes medications to manage my health. She is knowledgeable and highly skilled..
I am so fortunate to have Dr. Marilyn Tan as my doctor. She was highly recommended and i can see why. She helped me feel so much better in just a few days. She explains things very thoroughly and easy to understand. She is very responsive and has the best bedside manners.
Dr. Tan was fantastic. Shared lots of knowledge and had great bedside manner/empathy towards my condition. Was proactive and provided great recommendations during visit, included me in decision making in next steps, provided immediate lab results & feedback via MyHealth. Impressed with her assistants as well. Only issue I had was securing a follow-up appointment since the one date given by the doctor I had a conflict with travel so needed to schedule a different date option. Got caught up in a crazy phone tree/time sink when trying to make that return appointment. System seems limited when removed from direct contact with person securing the appointment times available with doctor. Told there was no direct number to call back to at the doctor's office/sent through a phone tree at the clinic several calls later and emails later.....Seems to be an easy fix with direct communication simplified some how.
Dr. Tan is very friendly, patient and explains issues with easy to understand words and sentences. She's caring and always listens to my concerns. She's an excellent care giver!
Again, excellent
Dr Tan was excellent!! She clearly explained what I needed and how to proceed with my care. I would highly recommend her!

Dr Tan listened to my concerns and explanation patiently. She did not make feel being rushed.
Dr. Marilyn Tan is the best endocrine dr. I have ever had. She knows her stuff and she cares! She never rushes me and she pays attention to the fine detail. Other drs. can really learn a lot from her. She's so good that I want to keep her to myself but of course I will not.
the greatest
(Bad) I expected more from the care provider. I had some issues to discuss but felt no encouragement to discuss other issues. There's nothing to be done for me.
Always good.

Dr. Marilyn Tan is an exceptional doctor. I'm very grateful to be under her care. Thank you.
Very good.
Dr. Tan showed up very short after I was escorted to the patient care room. I found her very personal. I immediately felt she cared about my health. She was efficient, but thorough. I felt special to be in her care.
Dr. Tan is a great doctor with a great bedside manner. The staff on site are always very friendly and professional. My biggest problem is that since I'm being treated for something that causes anxiety it is troubling that my doctor does not have the full authority to prescribe all the required medication for my specific ailment, causing me to have to go to other doctors outside of Stanford, in order to get all the prescriptions required to treat my ailment. I understand the need for oversight but I don't understand tying the hands of the doctors so that they cannot write prescriptions for certain medication (anti anxiety medication re: for Graves related anxiety) when it is clearly called for in specific instances.
Quick yet thorough visits works for me.
Dr. Tan is professional yet kind. I felt at ease throughout my appointment. She made me feel valued and cared for.
Dr. Tan is the best! She is knowledgeable and always willing to answer all of my questions in detail. You never get the impression that she is rushing and she always seems very focused and engaged on me and my health concerns.
nothing to complain about.
an amazing doctor! amazing experience!
Like coming to Dr Tan, she is on top of my case, has reviewed notes and tests before talking to me, she can definitely relate and understand concerns.
Dr. Tan was very caring and friendly. She greeted me and asked about how I was feeling. She even asked me about my family which made her seem very kind.
I was highly impressed that the doctor walked in and was already familiar with my case and had a plan ready for me. I didn't have to explain my history and was immediately confident in her.
Dr Tan is a excellent doctor that I look forward to seeing!! wish she was my family's doctor!
Dr. Tan is a great physician, her ease of communications are also extremely welcoming. My overall experience was very good.
Dr. Tan and Emily (the nurse practitioner) were friendly and professional. I really appreciate their easy going professional demeanor. They were caring and gave me explanations in a clear way that I could understand. They also made me feel cared for.
Dr Marilyn Tan has made me feel at ease with the care she is giving me for my medical problem and I have confidence in her ability to care for my condition.
Dr. Tan is excellent.
Dr. Tan is outstanding in every respect. I have recommended her to others & will continue to do so.
Dr. Tan is awesome! She spends time with me, answers my questions, and engages in a real discussion. She listens, is extremely knowledgeable and willing to try different approaches to improve my blood glucose. I actually look forward to my appointments with her because I know I will learn something and feel that we are working as a team to help me achieve the best health outcomes possible.
My care givers are very good about discussing medicines and how they work and how I should use them. Also they listen to any concerns or questions I may have and they respond with clear and understandable answers.
During my appointment my doctor said the following: "I wish I had a medical student here so that they could see this." It made me feel like a lab rat versus a cared for patient. That comment also made me fearful about my condition.
really nice talking to Dr Tan.. discussed all conditions, previous labs, and the path forward. Very good experience.
Always very pleasant and cordial.
very good
Dr. Tan was excellent -- she was very reassuring about previous test results, and provided a lot of explanation about my diagnosis. It was clear she was very knowledgeable.
Dr. Tan was attentive, detail oriented, and took the time to allow me to understand and participate in my care.
