Practice Philosophy

I consider myself a person-oriented psychiatrist, not simply just problem or symptom-oriented. In my care patients are not rushed.  There is always time to have your questions answered and your concerns addressed. I believe in being non-judgmental and open-minded. I have asked many of my patients why they choose me to be their psychiatrist. Here are some of the top reasons:

  • Bedside manner
  • You get my undivided attention during our session.  You will not see me answering phone calls, texting, or typing notes on the computer
  • Patients are seen on time
  • I do not double book appointments
  • Many of my patients have full time jobs and they appreciate having lunch and evening appointments
  • Getting the best and appropriate medication may sometime require a lot of effort to deal with the insurance company, which many doctors are unwilling to put in the time. I will take the time to deal with the insurance companies to support your case for your medication


Insurance/ Fees

Dr. Tang is not on any insurance plan panel, including Medicare/Medical. That being said, many of his patients have a PPO and receive some insurance reimbursement.   Patients pay upfront and he will provide a “superbill” which patients submit to the insurance company for reimbursement consideration. Many of his patients get reimbursed 30-60% of the office visits. Please check with your insurance company to see what their policy is on reimbursement.  By not participating on insurance panels, Dr. Tang is able to focus on quality care.  Dr. Tang is not a provider of any insurance plans because he believes they often interfere with patient care issues.  They may also share your personal psychiatric information.

If you have a PPO, you may be surprised at how small the difference is to go out-of-network to get individualized high quality care from Dr. Tang.  You can contact him for details.
